Or are you beautiful because I love you?
~Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, Cinderella
Love inspires me to see beauty
and beauty inspires me to love.
This quiet living room from Country Living
has become the inspiration for my own living
space in my new cottage.
I appreciate its subtle plays with texture
and its whispering elegance.
Stay tuned for posts about the new cottage.
I have been settling in,
and it is starting to look like home to me.
Losing my computer during the separation
has made it extraordinarily difficult to put up
new posts. Luckily, I have a dear friend who
allows me access now and again.
I hope you are all well and happy,
Remember to find moments of stillness
this holiday season.
There is peace, even among the chaos
of preparation for celebrations.
I challenge you to find some.
Until next time...

I journeyed to New Orleans.
This trip was a birthday gift from a
very special friend.
Growing up in the midwest, New Orleans
always seemed like a foreign country to me.
I pictured it as a place where different cultures,
races, customs, languages all merged into one
delicious stew of humanity.
From the age of 7,
I wanted to go there;
at the age of 41, I finally made it!
The French Quarter
Our visit included a day spent wandering
through the narrow, crowded streets of the
St. Louis Cathedral
This, and all older sections of the city, remained
undamaged by Hurricaine Katrina. We were told
these areas are actually several feet above sea level,
and their altitude, if you will, is what spared them.

Iron, brickwork, and lush greenery define the Garden District.

The gorgeous neo-classical front facade of the MFA,
which is just across the street from the Museum School.
A corridor of ancient eastern statuary beckons.
The courtyard of the MFA provides a relaxing space to

my daughter, my husband and I will
be taking to the highway.
This journey of over 1000 miles
will take us across 6 states.
As this beautiful and talented young woman leaves
the nest, I also begin a new chapter in my life.
New adventures await me, and I am thrilled
about my opportunities as well.
I will be away from my blog for the next week
or so. I wish you all well in the meantime.
Until next time...
