Although there were a lot of reasons I did not enjoy living in Oklahoma, my back Porch was something that I absolutely loved! If you couldn't find me in the house, I was very likely sitting on my back porch with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, reading a book, enjoying the nice breeze and quiet while the dogs either napped beside me or played in the yard. It was heaven. Our view was lovely and peaceful!
Living in Missouri I do miss the serenity and privacy of that back porch. Unfortunately, our views here just are not much to look at. BUT, I have worked hard to make our front porch all I want it to be. In fact, it was the first thing I did when we moved here. I had it set up before I even had our beds put together. THAT'S how important a peaceful and enjoyable porch is to me.
Here are some photos of our front porch. I still have some things I would like to do. We are going to paint it white, stain the floor, change the mailbox and exterior light fixture, paint the front door (maybe even replace it with something more vintage someday). But, for now, I love it!
