Today we start an extra special series. I’m so excited about it I can’t stand it. I want to introduce you to the “Porch Hosts” of this year’s Porch Crawl Fundraiser. The porch crawl, scheduled for May 19 from 5-9pm, will feature five porches and a visit to the bike shop. Here’s this year’s route:
Starting Place: Tim and Becky’s on Catherine Street
1st Stop: Home of Rick Sands & Denise Taylor, also on Catherine
2nd Stop: Crystal & Teague Paulk-Buchanan, Brookline Street
3rd Stop: Jeff O’Mara of Elbert Street
4th Stop: Rachel & Kevin Hill of Pearce
Final Stop: The Beltline Bike Shop on Brookline.
Over the next week, I’ll be introducing you to each of our hosts, bragging about how wonderful they are and show you to-die-for photographs of their porches. We love our porches in Adair Park, and invite you to come fall in love too!
Meet Rachel & Kevin
Rachel and I have a great (long) story on how we met and they ended up in Adair Park. Let’s just say we were destined to be friends. She, her husband Kevin and sweet kiddos Jude and Evie have lived in Adair Park for just over six months. She’s a crazy talented photographer, constantly giving of herself, and great neighbor to so many in Adair Park. Her home is beautiful, comfortable, and kid-friendly. Let’s get to know her porch!
What’s your favorite feature of your porch? ”People just don’t make southern, sweet tea sippin’, room for picnic table dinners-sized porches anymore! That’s why we knew we needed to find an awesome historic neighborhood like AP for an authentic southern front porch. My favorite feature is our picnic table, with plenty of room for 12. But my favorite thing to do on my porch is to sit on my porch swing and enjoy an awesome Atlanta summer thunderstorm.”
