elements

I feel content sitting here in the warmth of the sun

front porch

the chain represents our lives apart... yet together as a family

chain

although the columns are peeling and rough they are still strong

columns

the motion of life can be felt in the swaying of a porch swing

porch swing

the soft shadows play on the side of the B & B
where we stay each time we visit our daughter in college

it has become a home away from home
this porch
this swing
this chapter

These are excellent of your home away from home! We always camped and sometimes stayed in a lodge house at Shenandoah National Park when we visited our son during the four years he was in college in Virginia. Nice memories.

Very strange. This didn't come through on my feed reader until today. This post is so sweet.

I hate that I have a small, concrete porch. But, I'm grateful that I have a small bench there and I really like my back yard.

Still, I envy your porch just a bit, which really just means that I am glad you have it. :)
