It’s funny how things change as you get older.

While I still love to celebrate my birthday for, well, the entire month, like any normal person, with dinners and wine with friends and trips and presents and too much cake, after a fun, fun, fun summer of lots of events and tons of guests and just the right amount of sun and salt and sand (because there’s never enough, is there?) I think what I’d like most for my birthday is to sit on my front porch.

It’s a pretty boring and simple request, but if there’s any time to reflect on your front porch, a birthday is the time to do it.

I insisted the cake on Friday and present opening on Saturday also take place outside because even though it’s hard for presents to get better, they actually are even better with a sunset in the background and a perfect summer breeze.

I love my porch very much, but it could certainly take some pointers from these gorgeous patios!
