I love your porch!

I also have a rocking chair on my porch. It's where I enjoy being most on a warm morning.

Reading on the porch IS bliss. :)

I saw you have Sufjan Stevens on the sidebar. The Michigan album has been recommended to me. We lived in Holland for eight years and Detroit for nearly two years. The person recommending it said we'd enjoy the music.


What a pretty porch and yard. It looks very inviting.
I am having a good weekend too. I will have to check your friends new blog.


What a lovely yard....I love that path...I can imagine that it would be the start of many imaginary adventures for Evie....


Allison, I just posted a comment but it disappeared, so sorry if you get this twice! Why does this keep happening to us!!! I looove your photos-your porch, the rockers, the bird flag!! Oh, it's all gorgeous! And as for the photos you sent me- I loved everything, everything! I could go on forever! Just wanted to quickly check in and say thanks for the photos, as I'm not around much for the next few days. I will email you soon to properly rapture about your photos!! Have a great day tomorrow too!!


Absolutely perfect! It looks like a place that I would love to spend time.

Lovely porch Allie! If you'd like, I'd love for you to add it to my "Front Porches" group on Flickr!


I can just picture you riding up on your cute Raleigh and sitting down with some iced tea with hubby!

Have a great weekend!


What a beautiful place you have! When we stayed in an old colonial house in Bennington VT a few years ago, we spent many an evening on the porch with wine or coffee. There was even a family of robins living on the porch!

Ever since then I have had a thing about porches, especially the wraparound type!

Thank you for your lovely photos, you have a great blog!

Your front porch is lovely! I really miss not having one. The dog and I do sit on the front stoop, though LOL.

I love that you put twinkle lights in your umbrella!
We have them all throughout the trellis and wisteria vine on our back patio.

So romantic!!!

Your porch and yard look amazing! It looks like you have a very BIG and beautiful house, i like the brickstone, nice colour.Lovely contrast to the white rockingchair. Love them :) Not strange that you enjoy just sitting there with your husband and enjoy :)The surounding looks also great, nice to see that you have the forest so close by your home. Here we have to ride for a while to find anyone..hehe..
I hope you are doing fine and that you enjoy the weather and your work. We will soon go away for 4 weeks on holiday to Norway, i can`t wait! I shure miss everybody and specially my family, it would be som great to se all of them!!
I wish you a lovely week and see you soon Alison!
