So romantical...


swing
Originally uploaded by merideth.
So this weekend we hung the porch swing that we put toghether a few weeks ago. Okay but here's why it's so romantical: beth got this porch swing for me as a Christmas present the first year we were together. On the back, she did this:


Could it be any cuter?!! No. No my friends. It could not. We've had it in storage since 2000 because, as we lived in san francisco in a 1920s converted store, we had no place for a porch swing.

I spent yesterday staining (officially hate oil-based stain) the stand so that it matches the swing. It was just raw pine and this photo does not capture how way better it looks now. (I hadnt yet trimmed the chains in this photo.)

You're right...it couldn't be any cuter. My grandfather proposed to my grandmother on a porch swing so I have a soft spot for them myself. Just image both of you old and grey, holding hands and swinging. :)

Aw! I remember when Beth burned those initials! I remember wanting to burn other wood products in our home after that because it looked so fun.
