There are memories made on porches.......in days gone by especially. In those days when times were simpler and folks weren't on the go constantly running their children to extracurricular activities, they would gravitate to the porch in their rockers, swings, or benches, and watch the kids play in the yard during the day or catch fireflies after dark, while they enjoyed simple conversations ,sipping their lemonade or coffee. Porches were actually just an extension of their living space. Families LIVED a great deal of their lives on porches.
I love the appeal of porches. Every house I could or have ever dreamed of living in or imagined in my life has ALWAYS had a porch. And I admit that I will slow down and take a closer look at porches when I drive by them.....whether they be large meandering wrap-arounds or cozy small ones......they all draw me in!
Wanna take a stroll with me today as I stop by and visit some pretty and inviting porches? We can imagine who lives there and what it would be like to visit for awhile on these cozy welcoming porches!
Okay, let's go......
I just love that last one! Whoever lives there would have a hard time getting me to leave!
And mine seems so simple compared to some of these, but I worked with what I have. :) Here's our front porch this summer.....
Thanks for taking a stroll with me today. I hope you enjoyed the porch tour! I bet you had a favorite that you could imagine yourself on right about now! :)
Take time to grab you a cool glass of lemonade or a cup of coffee in the morning and enjoy YOUR porch. Enjoy the simple moments!
