It's all about quality of life and finding a happy balance between work and friends and family.
- Philip Green

Finding the balance of life is a universal struggle. Where do we put our energy? What do we do today? Do we do the laundry or do we grab a snack and hit the couch? It's all balance.

We started Porch hoping to navigate our way out of the dark cloud that infertility had placed in our lives. It has been an incredible journey - we've featured some beautiful work, met so many new people and have stretched our design muscles more than we ever have. But with all of the good, there must be balance. Amanda's dad was diagnosed with cancer and started chemo. Amanda had a health scare of her own that lasted for about 8 months. We've had to overcome several devastating hurdles in our photography business - but more on that at a later time. 

Through all of this, we've learned so much about ourselves - what we can handle, what we can not handle and how we want to spend our time. It is with a heavy heart that we say that this issue will be the first and the last issue of Porch - at least for now. Call this a hiatus of sorts. Thank you to everyone who has played a part in this journey - we truly can't thank you enough. We're excited to say that we are in a much better place in our lives. We are doing our best to collect our energy, store it up and put it in places that are meaningful and intentional. 

We'll be keeping the issue up for the Summer. We hope that you find something beautiful and helpful within its pages.
