My all time favorite front porch was at my Grandma and Grandpa Garrison’s house. It looked out on two majestic magnolia trees and had a view of the original family home. Over the years, many people gathered there and lots of family pictures were taken and memories were made. My mom was the youngest of twelve, and many of our family reunions were held right on the property where my grandparents lived. Many of us would sit out on the porch and catch up, having not seen each other for great lengths of time. For my family, being that my dad was Air Force, it was usually several years, depending on where we were stationed at the time.
