My parents (Grandie and Poppy to the grandchildren) enjoy Savannah, GA, and with Harleigh going to college just an hour away, their trip to The Hostess City of the South always includes times spent with my girl. Good food, walks on the water, a trip back to the 'Boro for a college football game — all make for a great weekend.
A fuzzy picture of Harleigh's bedroom on the top left. I love that she still has the bunting up on the wall that I made and mailed to her for Valentine's Day.
"Our house was not unsentient matter — it had a heart and a soul, and eyes to see with; and approvals and solicitudes and deep sympathies; it was of us, and we were in its confidence and lived in its grace and in the peace of its benedictions. We never came home from an absence that its face did not light up and speak out in eloquent welcome — and we could not enter it unmoved."- Samuel Clemens
I am probably the most content person you'd ever want to meet. I have a decent job working with people I like, a loving family including a swell Old English Sheepdog, a home where nesting and curling up on slipcovered sofas is required, and a life rich in creative crafting and daydreaming. I someday want a cottage at the beach where my grandchildren can bring sandy feet into the house, wet bathing suits can dry on the front porch and everything we need to get to is a bicycle ride away.
