    Becoming a Blogger: Part 1

    Today I am starting a series on the behind the scenes of my blogging journey. Although it hasn’t been a very long one, I hope it is the start to many more years.

    Easy to Follow Porch Swing Plans

    Last Fall, I built a porch swing bed for my mother-in-law. I documented the process and posted the tutorial here on our blog.

    We’ve heard from a lot of people who have used it to make their own swing, which is awesome! But we’ve also been asked if we had plans for our original swing which was a different design, and was actually the one my mother-in-law ended up with. I built it long before we started this blog, which means I didn’t document the process or take and pictures of being built.
