Now, that's what I'm talking about!

Aren't those rocking chairs just so, incredibly inviting? Don't you just want to grab an ice cold glass of lemonade and enjoy the day away in this serene location? I know I do. And guess what. I can!

My parents went in together and gave me (money to buy) these for my birthday. I found a place nearby that builds these sets for super cheap. They're still unfinished, and Brad (let's just be honest here. We both know it won't be me.) will have to stain them, but for the price, it was totally worth it.

After we brought them home, we immediately plopped ourselves down on them just to get a feel for our new setting. Within moments, my eyes welled up with tears. It's just so surreal. I've always dreamed of having a front porch (with spindles) occupied by quaint little rocking chairs. And to sit on our new thrones at the front of our very own house was just such a wonderful feeling. It's really happening.

Every day, I still can't believe how much God has blessed us. This is our home. Our wonderful home. And I love it.

PS. What do you think of Brad's landscaping? He's totally become obsessed gotten into it and has done such a great job! You should see pictures of it when the magnolia bush, rhododendron, lilies, and azaleas were all in bloom. Beautiful!

PPS. Oh, also notice that he painted our front door. Now it's not just boring white, anymore. If you want to see all the rest of the pictures of our other "home improvements," check out the whole album. The pictures are in chronological order, so the most recent ones are at the end.

Not-A-PS. It's Friday! I hope you totally enjoy your weekend. Do you have any awesome plans? Maybe you'll get the chance to spend a little time relaxing on your front porch, or stoop, or step, or whatever you happen to have.

It does look cozy! I have been thinking about rocking chairs for our porch, but Josh will have to clean it off first. It's covered in remodeling equipment...
