Hi Friends!

Welcome to my front porch! If you have been following me on Instagram, then you have probably seen my "porch chats." I love sitting out on my front porch daily to come talk to all of my followers. It is definitely one of my highlights of the day. So much of my inspiration and building community is sparked here. From waiving hello to my neighbors and watching the kids play in the yard, I feel so much joy and togetherness when I'm on my porch. 

Recently, I made a mini porch makeover. I was in desperate need of a porch refresh, so I worked with a small budget and added a few new items to freshen up my porch for Summer. It really doesn't take much effort to decorate a pretty porch for Summer. All I did was upgraded my porch lanterns, layered my door mats with a patterned outdoor rug, placed two faux topiary trees on each side of the door, and added one of my beautiful Summer wreaths from The Gifted Wreath Collection. I love how it all turned out. It feels so good to have a beautiful entryway from the moment you walk through the front door. I don't know about you, but it just makes me feel so happy to be home when my home feels put together.
