Year 5- Day 197: Today, I am grateful for a second story porch.
I love the grandeur of old and well loved homes. Within the walls are so many stories, secrets and even a little mystery. The rise of B & B's across America is the reason some regal old homes come to life once again.
The Inn at 835 in Springfield, IL is one of those homes. One of the great delights is 2nd and 3rd story porches. Not a balcony, but a porch. What an amazing place to sit, sip, study, pray and start the day.
"and in the morning you shall see the glory of the Lord."
This image doesn't do full justice to the glory of the porch on this perfect summer morning. It feels like a tree house. One of our favorite places in any home is the porch. We couldn't resist the room that had one.
It is a gorgeous day for a young couple to start a marriage.
Summer schedules left little room for a real vacation, so we are taking it where we can. A wedding a short drive away was the perfect opportunity to add a day and take in a few sights.
We made our wedding destination a vacation moment to celebrate our 30 years.
Is there a better way to start the day?
Today, I am grateful for a second story porch.
