When it comes to saying goodbye to summer, I’m like the girlfriend who doesn’t want to let her boyfriend go and desperately clings to any bit of fading hope I can grab. I love summer and am always a little depressed when it comes to an end. It’s a good thing fall bursts forth in riotous color and beauty. It helps heal the wounds that summer’s departure leaves behind. The beauty of autumn decor also helps lift the spirits … like a pretty fall porch.

In a few weeks I’ll be sharing my fall front porch when I join other bloggers for a week-long autumn fall tour. I can’t wait, but first I have to paint my porch floor!
