Our Front Porch

I walked out the front door yesterday and it hit me. I haven’t blogged about one of my favorite parts of this house yet- the front porch! From it, we can see the lake at the end of our street, and I don’t think we’ll ever get tired of looking in that direction.

We only have to climb a couple of stairs to come in and out of our back door (I’ll blog about the back side of the house next week), but the trek up to the front porch is a little more…uh…thigh muscle burn-y. Lots of steps…fourteen to be exact…but I do love how high up the porch sits off the sidewalk.

The porch itself is a little chippy and overgrown right now…

…and it was somewhat challenging to photograph it from every angle…

…but where there’s a will, there’s a way.

    Huge space! I love how spacious it looks and how open it is, without being at regular porch height. Must be lovely to lounge out there in a comfy chair and just enjoy being still.

    I LOVED this post. And especially the photo of you out the window..
    As a former southern girl, I still love front porches and seeing yours makes me wish more for one.

    Also a fan of the blog.
