Life in the Fairmount – Our Porchtrait Project
Ever since suspending new requests for the Fairmount Porchtrait Project At the end of June I have been missing these sweet interactions with my neighbors. I will look forward to ways of continuing when I’m caught up from the backlog.
Meet the Philips over in the 1300 block of Washington Ave.
When I asked Becky my Porchtrait Project question’s about life during Shelter In Place, here is what she had to say….
What’s been the most difficult thing for you about shelter in place/social distancing?
The most difficult thing for us about sheltering has been not taking advantage of the small businesses nearby and seeing family. Becky’s mom is 94 and lives in Indiana.
What do you miss the most during Shelter in Place?
We really are missing seeing our friends who live in other states, plus we’re big sports fans and miss that.
How long have you lived in the Fairmount?
We’re new to Fairmount, moved in November last year. Previous 20 years in Kansas City, and Chicago and Lexington, KY before that.
Share your favorite thing about living in the Fairmount?
Our favorite thing about living in Fairmount is the neighborhood’s diversity.
What is your favorite business in the Fairmount?
Our favorite business is Melt for obvious reasons, and Heim’s, but pandemic has limited our opportunities to check them all out.
What are you thankful for?
What we’re thankful for is having quality medical care so near. Charlie needed some emergency care shortly after we moved in, and he had a great medical team at Harris Methodist taking care of him. (And also thankful that’s Charlie’s here. ? )

The deadline for Porchtrait requests was the end of June but I am still posting from those already taken.
I have loved every moment with my wonderful neighbors, hearing and sharing stories from the heart. I look forward to future projects that allow these sweet front porch interactions to continue.
This has been a love gift from my heart to this amazing community that we live in. For those who can, you can make a donation to the non profit that I donate my time to, Capturing Grace.
