When we were looking to buy a house, one thing that I really wanted was a front porch (and not just a little step). I always wanted a front porch you could sit and drink a lemonade, where you could sit and watch the rain, when the neighbors are walking by they stop and chat.
We have a front porch, and this is how it usually looks. I will be honest, my husband tries to use it as a catch all and it drives me crazy.
I cleaned it off and after six years I finally have some chairs to put on it. Yay. I couldn't sweep all of the stuff off because it was still wet.
Here is a view from the front.
Matt doesn't seem to be minding a nice place to sit. Maybe just maybe, we can keep the bags of fertilizer off now. Did I mention he doesn't really like to be my model. When he is frustrating me I get back at him by slipping in a picture.
