it's front porch time!

one of the many things i love about this house of ours is the wonderful front porch. trouble is, there's been no place to sit or gather since we moved in. well, that's all changing this weekend! we have two big white rocking chairs & a porch swing that will be taking center stage.

they hold the promise of lots of summer evenings on the porch with dear friends. because i can't resist making things a bit more cozy, i just snagged these two pillows from west elm (they're on sale!). plus i know we'll use them anywhere we move as they fit our navy life by the water oh so perfectly. our front porch doesn't quite look like that top photo, but a girl can dream...

are you doing anything to get your porch/yard/garden ready for summer?
