Sitting outside with a good book in the rain.

This is what I want to be doing on my screened porch.  It has always been a dream of mine to have a screened porch.  There is something I love about it.  You can be outside but escape from the mosquitoes (which typically eat me alive).  D is going to most likely be embarking on a variety of home projects.  One of the projects I am going to set him on is building on a screened porch.

[Not a huge deck...but totally legit for building on to...]

D is thinking we'll add it on to this side so that we can keep the stairs.  We'll see.  Hopefully that'll be a project for next spring or summer.  

Here are some porch pics that have me swooning...

 [Oh man...I die for this porch.  The Adirondack chairs, the trees, and the puppy.  Image via design*sponge]

[So gorgeous with all the greenery.  We definitely need to stain and weatherproof our deck.  Image via weheartit]

 [I know our house isn't this big, but I could totally picture something like this.  I like the addition of the latice on the bottom.  Image via designers-choice]

[Again, we wouldn't have anything near this big, but how adorable!  I picture a comfy little couch or chair in ours with a table.  And lots of plants!  Image via weheartit]

[I know this is a poor picture, but this is my vision.  Currently, we have sliding glass doors leading out to the deck.  I could definitely see us putting in french doors that lead to a screened porch.  Then build on a deck from that.  Absolutely perfect.  One day...  Image via thisoldhouse]
