I would love to say this is my porch. Don't you just want to curl up here with a good book and a cup of coffee and enjoy a lazy Sunday afternoon? Sadly, it is not my porch. Maybe when the kids are older and my husband is okay sitting on "girly" furniture I will finally get my wish but until then I will be happy with our version.
I'm not quite finished yet. I want to go back and get the matching rug and I need to add some plants (I think it looks a little stark). This will be the first time since we moved in (15 years ago!) that we will actually have a functioning upstairs porch. I don't know why I'm so excited, we have a porch downstairs that we use all the time. Last year the kids slept up here whenever they could, they have already started asking when they can again. I can picture them snuggled up on the love seat watching a movie and eating popcorn or Marty reading to his sister. Hopefully my husband and I will bring our coffee up here after the kids are in bed and talk like we used to. Somehow in all of our craziness we have lost each other. Maybe that's how it works when you have kids, you are so concerned with their well being that you forget that it was once just the two of you. You forget what brought you together in the first place. This year has been very hard, maybe I'm just dreaming this is the year we stop struggling. Maybe I need to learn that anything worth having is worth fighting for.
Thanks Victoria you made a little girls day!!!
Whatever you're dreaming of, I hope it comes true!
