Porch Lighting Ideas to Maximize Outdoor Living Delight

It’s apple weather, sweater weather, wrap yourself in a blanket, and sit on the porch at night weather! Did I mention it is also campfire weather? All of that, and you can still run out into the Atlantic on a sunny afternoon and enjoy the beach life. The only challenge.
