Threshold of Corner Bungalow

I can’t believe I am writing a post about my back porch. After going to our always fun and exciting National Night out Tuesday, I realized  how much our neighbors have kept a close eye on our corner bungalow over the years. After adding boulders and landscaping to the back yard, a new kitchen, garage siding (after finding out people would slide into our garage decades ago… the reason our stucco was falling off the alley side) ,a new roof, windows, exterior paint, putting in an extensive veggie garden in the front yard, and soon a new chimney (as our contractor calls it the leaning tower of Piesa). I know there have been many more updates I just can’t capture in words. All I can say is I am glad we are finally able to take a break and enjoy our neighborhood strolls while keeping an eye on all the additions and updates as our neighbors did with our home. I can  lay down that ever deserving welcome mat at our back door family and friends call the threshold of our  corner bungalow.
