My House: The Front Porch

We've been so busy with our yard this summer and I'm really, really loving it. Okay, Mike has done most of the work but it makes me happy to sneak in some decorating while he's at it.

I did a little mini-revamp of the front porch - new chairs, new rug, some flowers. I kinda love sitting here and watching the world go by. In fact, I'm enjoying my morning coffee here right now, hopefully the world doesn't mind watching me in my pj's as I enjoy the view (or judge me that it's 10:30am and I'm still in my pj's)...

Eventually we'd like to paint or stain the wood and extend the stairs so they go the length of the porch, but since we spent so much time/money on the landscaping this will have to wait a bit.

Mike has a few things left he wants to do with the landscaping, but I think it looks awesome. Hopefully I'll get out there soon and take some photos of the rest of the yard. My computer is still at the computer hospital, these were taken with my iPhone cause I'm getting tired of waiting. Hopefully they look ok. Stupid computer.
