The porch

The theme for the "Inspiration Workshop" this week is front porches.
What kind of porch inspires me?

Well, this one does for sure..

I mean, don't you  want to curl up with a cup of coffee and your bible on this thing?


This one inspires me..

I could just picture myself with a slew of grandkids running down this porch.
This one is long enough for all my family to sit down together and enjoy a glass of sweet tea.


And this one inspires me..

It whispers peace to me.
Come slow down and just ..be.


All those are nice and great to dream about.
But honestly the porch that inspires me the most is this one.....

My porch!

It's small and simple.
  I doubt anyone would ever pin in on Pinterest nor would you find it in the pages of a magazine.
But its real.
And its mine.
I love what takes place on my porch and the people I get to share it with.









This is hanging on my porch. 
A gift from my daughter.
It reminds us both to bloom where God has planted.
(and it's really cute like her)









We blow bubbles here.

Eat supper here.

Make masterpieces here.








Eat popsicles here.



Make messes here.
 We learn stuff here.

We have fun here.






We make memories here.

  1. Yours is lovely - but wow... the hammock... the river... I'm pretty sure if I could sit there - I'd never leave.

  2. i love seeing your porch as the porch that inspires you!

    as much as inspiration happens in what we see - and it does, i think so much more actually happens in our actual lives - and sometimes we (and by we, i mean myself) aren't as open to seeing it.

    this post reminds me to look around my own spaces.

    love it. :)
