Refreshing

The only reason we are leaving is the house is booked for a wedding. The breakfast is awesome and the rest is refreshing. The hunt for Smith ancestors and relatives continues.

A Weekend away from the City

This has been a great chance to catch up with my kids, who are so busy with school and career plans; the quiet and distance from the city is a tonic in any weather. Plus breakfast and afternoon treats!
