With Spring here and Summer just around the corner, wedding season has officially begun. I received my first wedding invitation of the year yesterday, and I’m thrilled to be able to attend.
This is my small urban front porch. It used to be a space that my husband and I would avoid, but now it’s a favorite spot to enjoy a cup of coffee on sunny mornings.
