Every summer I change up on the porches a little bit. Whether it be the pillows, the furniture or the flowers. This year I made new pillow covers and moved a bench from the backyard (the old love seat went to the curb). I changed up the flowers in the stone planters too. Over the last 15 years the swing has emerged as a favorite place for us all. When the kids were babies I spent hours swinging with them, sometimes it’s just a quiet place to go when you need a minute alone. When they were toddlers they colored pictures and rolled the ball down the porch like a bowling alley.
