We arrived to Hawthorne quite late in the evening. The drive up just beautiful, and as always, filled with excitement & anticipation. This place has found a very special spot in our hearts. It has become a place we recharge, refresh and reflect. The memory of the time here something I look back on almost daily when we are not. The sounds of the birds, the feeling I get when I am standing at the kitchen sink, what it is like to wake up to the light streaming in on the walls of our bedroom. When we are here, I feel like I am storing up memories. The embrace of this house. It always welcomes us back with open arms. Just like a great friendship, we begin right where we left off.
