Hello, dear Savvy Southern Style readers! My name is Emily and I write a blog over at Eleven Gables. I started writing about the happenings at my home, "Eleven Gables," just this year. My husband and I are raising our 4 boys in the Oklahoma countryside and we love sharing our home with you. Thank you, sweet Kim, for inviting me to be part of your Favorite Room series!
I recently shared that I have many favorite rooms in my "forever house," but my back porch pretty much takes the cake. Here, I can start my day with coffee and my quiet time...
Come, sit a spell and enjoy a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine) with me.
The porch has become the hub of our home. We just finished the renovation of this space a few months ago, but have spent EVERY SINGLE DAY here since! We eat all of our evening meals on the brick patio. Our family loves the outdoors and this has been the perfect spot to just hang out, visit, or dance!
My style is "gathered." I like a cozy spot that looks like it has been here forever without being too trendy or formal. I want my family to gather here and feel like they can put up their feet and let down their defenses.
We are looking forward to the cooler temperatures when we can warm up to the fire, roast marshmallows, or snuggle up with a good book.
The porch has already made the perfect venue for parties... even during a rainstorm!
Eleven Gables invites you to come and visit us every now and then as we journey through this thing we call life together. It isn't always perfect. There is mud on the sofa and socks on the floor, but we welcome you to our little corner of the world.
Thank you, again, Kim for having us over for a visit. We hope you and your readers enjoyed our little tour of our favorite spot. Maybe, someday, you can visit for real. You will always be welcome to a warm bed and a hot meal here at our home.
Thanks so much, Emily for sharing your cozy backyard space. It is a dream of mine to have a spot like this now if I could only get the mister on board. :)
If y'all are not familiar with Eleven Gables you will want to get comfy and go over and see much more. Her kitchen is drool worthy.

Have a super weekend!
