Sweet Southern Breeze

One of my favorite things to do during the summer is sit outside late at night when it's cool, and sip some sweet tea or a Mike's Hard lemonade. In the South, we live for those cool, breezy summer nights and love our porches for that very reason. My house has four (yes, four) porches, and I can't imagine not having a lovely porch on my future home. Although none of the porches on my home are quite as grand as these, these gorgeous porches make me think of the sweet Southern summertime:













Ahhh, I could drool over these porches all day. Hope y'all have a fabulous day!

P.S. I'm still having problems commenting on other blogs, but I promise I'm trying to fix it! This has been a problem since early last week, so please don't think I'm ignoring y'alls blogs! Thanks for being patient!

  1. I love porches! That third one down looks sort of like my in-laws and I love curling up and reading a good book with some coffee (for morning) or lemonade. AND, I almost always fall asleep!
    Glad to see you were able to comment on my blog again. I was having the EXACT same issue the other day and I couldn't post on yours.

  7. I love porches, there is nothing better than sitting on the porch chatting with family and friends! We had a screened in porch forever at our house, but my mom decided there was not much time we could use it (so hot in the Summer, cold in the Winter) so we glassed it in and I love it!
    I had commenting problems too! I'm glad I can finally comment again!
