I cannot wait to have my own home. One of the most important things to me will be my porch. Outdoor sitting areas are so peaceful, calming, and wonderful. I love all three of these spaces.

Comfy furniture and an outdoor dining set is a must along with many colorful plants, and I would love a grill to cook out and eat dinner as the sun sets. I also love the idea of an outdoor fireplace.
