What is it about porches that I find so alluring? I’m drawn to every house we drive past that has a front porch.
Maybe it has something to do with the sense of Welcome that they create. Seeing such warm and cozy front porches always make me feel like there may be home baked cookies and fresh sweet tea awaiting inside, just waiting for someone to visit. Or maybe…they just remind me of a simpler time when people weren’t so stuck behind the various electronics that consume our days. A time when all visitors were welcome and people didn’t mind sitting for a spell to have a chat.
Do you remember those times? I remember them. Today there are some who continue this tradition of sitting on the front porch with a glass of sweet tea and visit with friends and loved ones. Of course, here in the South, one must be ware of the mosquitoes – they do tend to be pesky little things.
Do you have a porch? Do you still use it for a purpose other than decoration?
Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!
