Still Life at HawthorneFebruary 2, 2017
We arrived Sunday evening. Oh how I had missed this place. The drive up the long driveway seeing the lamps illuminating the front sun porch that Bill turns on for us so the place is not dark when we arrive makes my heart sing.
The feeling of instant relaxation hits us. Our shoulders loosen up, we inhale the country air. It is a full day of travel but worth every moment. This stay is almost all holiday. Just a few days in the middle of the trip into the city buying at the show, which by now you know I love, along with the town & country contrast. And lots of rest, reading, cooking, napping, hosting family & friends. With a bit of vintage shopping for the shops for good measure. And snow! There was a good amount when we arrived and it has snowed even more the first few days. Heaven. We are taking a respite from news and enjoying the quiet. The stillness. I snapped a few images, with more to come. Oh so good to be back. Lovely to have you along.
