Beautiful Sentiments

The other day I posted about how living on land was energizing for me & a sort of "creative fuel" and I couldn't get over the beautiful, thoughtful comments readers left.  Some of them were so universal and rang so true to me that I wanted to share them.  As Thanksgiving nears (whaaaat?!!!) I wanted you all to know how thankful I am for the kindness & support you've given to me over the years.  I can't get over how many beautiful, kind souls I've "met" here.  Here are just a few of the comments (mixed in with photos of our Thanksgiving tables from years past & pics of our properties past & present) and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.  Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours! ...

Lake House Upper Bedroom Before & After

We're home from a long weekend at our family's lake house and I could have stayed a whole month!!  (or 6!!)   In the midst of a serious renovation at our new place (with no semblance of a kitchen) we've been eating out almost every single night, so it was SO NICE to have a kitchen this weekend.  We've been running at a pace that has made me wish for what I previously thought of as "crazy busy." Our six year-old got really sick in the car on the way down  (finally fever-free this afternoon!) so we ended up not sleeping much. It was one of those quiet cloudy fall weekends -where the sky is moody and the trees are so bright in contrast- that calls for cozying up by fire and soup and all those wonderful fall things but really just ends up in binge-watching netflix which is heaven.  We arrived sometime after midnight and then headed to the ER to take care of our #2, but left today in a much better spot, ready to face the sawdust, noise, mayhem and general disorganization that is home right now.    ...
