the front porch party.

Reasons why the front porch is the best part of the house: 

-Mom and Dad sit in the rocker (with Maxx right next to them) and sip their morning coffee with their Bibles in their laps, waving to everyone who goes by. It's the cutest thing you've ever seen. 

-It's a place where friends and neighbors can just walk right up, drag over a seat, and share a drink with whoever happens to be there. 

-When we have parties, they flow out of the house, onto that porch, and spill into the yard. As the day goes, the party grows with neighbor kids and friends from the block. And when the sun sets, Dad's pulls out the floodlights to keep the bags tournament alive. 

But mostly -- the porch is like an invitation. And that's what community feels like, right?
