I have a thing for southern porches and architecture. The past few years, I have lived in an old Florida home with split level porches. The city where I live has hundreds of craftsman bungalows and mid century ranch homes. The neighborhood is sprinkled with large, antebellum-esque homes with porches. The sun porch on the upper floor where I live is gigantic. It took me several days to paint it, which was both relaxing and hot…I strung up some small lights and placed a round table with plenty of chairs in my favorite corner. The ceiling fans make it a really nice place to sit in the evening. I often read the newspaper and have my morning coffee on the porch. Lately it has been too hot…but I won’t see another summer here in the next few years. I will be moving to New England to begin a new job in June.
