Our porch...


Hello everyone!  Hope ya'll are doing well.  As you've all probably noticed, I am not so good at this "blog" thing.  I'm erratic and my photo's stink.  But, I hope you'll give me some points for trying.  

When I began this blog I had hoped to show all the cool artsy/crafty, foodie, garden tending, party hosting things I've been doing.  So far, that has been far and few between.  And although I don't blog nearly as often as I'd like, I am busy doing stuff,  just not stuff I think ya'll would be interested in.  
So, today, I actually have a day off from "doing" non-interesting stuff.  I thought I'd take this opportunity to post a photo of my front porch.  My awesome front porch that is perfect for spending a lazy day on.  Now, I took the picture yesterday and it had started out being quite wet and cloudy.  But, as the day wore on it got to be somewhat better, lighting wise.  Unfortunately, my picture taking abilities are still nonexistent so I just couldn't do my poor porch justice.   And now that I'm 

posting these pictures, I realize that I should have taken some while actually standing on the porch.  Then you could see the fabulous porch swing on one side and the cute wicker set on the other side.  Plus, you'd be able to see how wide the rail is around the porch.  Perfect for sitting on!  Imagine if you will, some cute little throw pillows sitting atop the wall of the porch, fresh squeezed lemonade in hand and multiple conversations going on all around you!  I just LOVE that imagery!  So hopefully I will be able to actually shoot a picture like that soon!  Next month is my honey and my birthdays.  The dates are only 9 days apart and most of the time there is always a weekend in between our birthdays.  We we celebrate by having a party!  We've had some fun parties in the past.  Parties with friends and their families and their dogs...  I remember one year our dog Molly jumped out of our kitchen window (a whole floor above the ground) and went wandering around.  Anyhow...  This year I hope to begin our party on the front porch and then ooze on over to the deck.  We have a nice deck too!  We had a small get together a while back and
we all gathered on the deck and enjoyed the shade and easy access to the kitchen.  I LOVE easy access to the kitchen...food...yum!  And now that we have this fabulous deck, I've used our grill nearly everyday!  I do love our alfresco dining evenings.  But, I digress.....

So, there you go.  A few photo's of the porch and deck and a few of our friends to boot!  I will try to put up photo's of the house.  I've taken a few but I just can't seem to do the house justice.  I suppose it's not really the house, it's the decorating... or lack there of.  Anyhow, I will work on posting some soon!  Honest!  ;-)

Hope you all have a great day!  See you soon!

I have a dream of having that kind of porch... always wanted a wrap around porch like my dad has, he lives in Eastern Oregon.. High desert country.. really beautiful to even huddle in a blanket on the back portion of the deck and stare out onto the Blue Mountains.. I digress..I love your purch, and you have a lovely home!

I am so jealous of your porch, it's a wonderful old-fashioned porch.

Your porch is great. Magical. Perfect. I am sitting on my in-laws porch in perfect contentment. I think porches do that.
