porch life

This weekend I’m launching my forth annual 100 Days of Summer list and one of the items this year is spend more time on my front porch. After hanging out on my sister’s, I realized I am a front porch girl. Give me a coffee or a glass of wine and I may never come inside.

As a kid, I was always drawing house plans and there was always a wrap-around porch and now that I have a porch, I never use it. I need to fix this.

Here are some great swings I found online:

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

I  think I’ll also need an outdoor rug, new lighting, a side table or two, a big fat fern, lots of throw pillows, a few fancy lanterns and pots and pots of flowers.

Hello summer!
