14 Ways To Refresh Your Spirit in Brown County, Indiana
#12: Spend time on a porch

Chris' loom clacks gently as she moves the shuttle and the pedals in a smooth ballet. A breeze rattles the screen, and a fountain bubbles into a pond outside the window. Chris says, "I love sitting here so much, that I don't even think of it as work."
