Sitting on the Front Porch Drinking Ice Cold Cherry Coke.

Spring = porch sitting, so I have had exteriors like this on the brain lately...

Since moving to Los Angeles my dream of home ownership has definitely shifted. Growing up the dream was to live in a nice traditional home in the nicest part of town with big trees and sidewalks. Then, as I got older, realized the type of job one must have to own that type of home my dream changed to simply owning a home that isn't a shack in a decent neighborhood and became willing to forgo the sidewalk requirement. And, now living in L.A. my dream has become to one day own one side of a duplex. Yes, folks, a duplex, that is the dream. People laugh when I tell them that but, I say it with 100% seriousness. If you have ever lived in Southern California (or NYC, or Portland, or San Francisco, etc.) you would totally understand.

Hi Erin,
I live in Atlanta where covered porches and sidewalks are plentiful and very affordable. As a matter of fact the last photo you displayed with the porch swing looks very similar to our front porch. Come on down to the south, we'll get you setup on a porch with a frosty glass of lemonade quicker than you can say "grits" (Girls Raised in the South). You're always welcome in my neck of the woods!
Cheers,
Lori

We will see what kind of a home the Lord will give you, whatever it is it will be a mansion because it will be a gift from God. He has wonderful things for his children, sometimes I am amazed with such grace.If it is in his will it will be the best. You will see, I have seen . Cousin Joan
