Front Porch Appeal
Issue #32 March 2012
Porch News for Porch LoversWelcome to the new format of Front Porch Appeal. After three years, Mary and I thought it was due for a fresh new look. Spring is certainly in the air in Middle Tennessee. How about where you live? Are you making plans for your porch this year?
We know many of you are thinking of screening your porch or adding porch curtains. No matter what, enjoy time on your porch with your family and friends. A porch is very good for the soul!

Mary and I were honored to speak at the Niche Affiliate Marketing Conference (NAMS) in Atlanta GA in February. We had fun sharing our story of creating Front Porch Ideas and More and what it has allowed us to do.
In addition, Mary gave a most inspirational presentation on improving your mindset for success.

To celebrate, we visited parts of Northern California - San Francisco, Sausalito and the Monterey Bay area. Oh my goodness, we saw so many beautiful porches and want to share a few with you. Just gorgeous.
