(We used the timer for this picture. We are amazed that we are all looking at the camera and smiling.)
Porch swings have been an important part of me and Todd's relationship. We first started dating during the summer after first year of law school, and I was living at home at the time. We would go to my parent's house to "work," but ended up spending hours and hours on the porch swing, talking and getting to know each other. Even though we got engaged and married *very* quickly, I feel like we really did get to know each other well because we spent so much time together not working, sitting on the porch swing.
It was also on the porch swing that we first told each other we loved each other, and where Todd proposed. So, I am thrilled about having a porch swing in our new home. We've already enjoyed the nice weather out swinging with Joseph, watching him play with other toys out there, and blowing bubbles.
