Pals on the Porch




























The summer is ending with fall nipping at it's heels. There are too many errands to run, school's in for the kiddies and business is blessedly busy....
I hope someone visits soon. We'll sit on the porch once more this season, before it's too cold to go outdside at all. We'll watch the world go by and I will forget, for a few moments, all that waits inside...
the laptop, the dinner waiting to be cooked, the inevitable chores.
There's nothing like friends on the front porch. It's the spot that's half way between home and the rest of the world. It's my buffer. The friends that fill it join me with acceptance, shared joy and in reflection.
Come to think of it, I think gal pals and a front porch are a fabulous combo....beside we're not gossipping, we're just "networking".

xxoo Jen

Your home is beautiful and cozy. I love your front porch and the decorating you do for each season.
It is truly welcoming for you guests.

I have a wonderful front porch too. I think that's why I bought my house 11 years ago. I love sitting in my rocking chair with the sun shining on me.
