Summer is still hanging in there, isn't it? You can barely see a hint of yellow leaves clinging to the trees in the background here, this is our home sweet home, my haven where I create, cook, garden, craft, write, pray and live the life I've been so blessed with. I feel so close to God here, esp. in the gardens, tending to the flowers, harvesting the herbs and picking the produce. Each season (and we've lived here for all 4 now) brings new beginnings, new hopes and new fellowships with the land. If a place were ever to be meant for someone to take over, this place was meant for us, a connection that I just can't explain. I hope no matter where you live, that you've made your house a happy home.
And one of the 43 bloggers who left a sweet summer memory in my back to summer giveaway is a lucky lady today.......
