where the heart is......

By now I think you all know how much I love our cottage.
We were just there on what we called "a real vacation" as it's the first time
that we've been there for more than just a few days...
this time, 11 whole days !
But honestly, even when we can only spend a weekend there
it still feels like a vacation.
we were blessed to have the wonderful Bill and Kathy,
come visit us.
Now granted, we have had many visitors
and many compliments,
but what Kathy wrote after they had visited....
well, I just had to share it with all of you.
{and she said I could}

Hi Beth,
A great big thank you to you and John for having us. We are still talking about you two.... seriously...
We don't see many homes or cottages that we are "nuts" about, but your place literally has been a gift to visit. Everything is perfect, and I mean PERFECT with thoughtful attention to detail. I am incredibly sensitive to aesthetics and I loved what you and John have created. I told Bill, when we were driving in, that I could feel the energy of the land. You two have a magical and loved land... it is obvious, a harmonious relationship you and John have established.
Kathy and Bill
{seriously, how beautiful is that ??}


  1. That's wonderful, but it doesn't surprise me! You can feel your warmth and style and peace and energy in each of your posts! Sounds like a lovely time!

  2. i knew they would love it!!!
    how could they not!!

  3. That is so cool!!! Attention to detail is so true!!! Your place is a true wonder!!!

  4. I have *no* doubt!!! Knowing both you and John, yes, I imagine it as perfection on earth.

  5. Absolutely beautiful! And coming from such an influential and artistic soul such as Kathy makes it ever so much more meaningful.


**I love reading the comments you leave, as they make me feel like we're sitting in my kitchen, having a cup of tea, discussing life and wondering where all the time has gone ...beth
