My Favorite Room.

Our enclosed front porch is quickly becoming my favorite room in the house, especially since the weather is starting to warm up! I lock the front door so Sadie and her two amigos (as she calls the dogs) can have free reign! The open windows and ceiling fan allow the breeze to come in and revitalize us as we play and relax.

I love to sit on the porch and read or blog hop while Sadie plays with the dogs and her toys! It is a place where the whole family can relax at the end of a long day. I am now in the progress of redecorating this space. We have a porch swing and two dark wicker conversation chairs and a table. Of course, there are comfy pillows on all the chairs and the swing! Today, Spencer brought home three concrete column plant stands that I will probably paint in a distressed brown to match the rest of the space! And the next order of business will be an area rug and a coffee table! I just cannot tell you in words how much I adore this extra room!

Today's photos were taken on the porch on Sunday evening as we were relaxing after dinner. The top one is Sadie discovering her "green" thumb! Keep in mind this is a fake plant! She did, however, play in the dirt at Papa's house earlier in the day and is very excited to plant her tomatoes again this year! She had such a good time watching them grow and eating them last year that this year should really be fun!

The second photo is the three amigos watching Daddy move his truck from the street to the driveway! The dogs were whining and Sadie was crying because they all thought he was leaving them! Too funny!

Do you have a favorite space in your house? I sure hope so because everyone deserves a place just to hang and relax! Happy St. Patty's Day to you all!

How I'd love an enclosed porch. I bet that's so nice. My favorite place is in our back yard where I can watch our neighbors horses run and play. Such a peaceful site.

That's a great photo--love Sadie's "ponies" all lopsided! The three of them are adorable together!
