House to Home

Our Arkansas home sits in the middle of five acres at the end of a rural road.  The loudest sounds we hear come from frogs, crickets, cicadas and our nearest neighbor's lawn mower, once a week.  A "far cry" from New York City, where Drew and I live when we're not here. The peacefulness of Springhill slows us down, invites us to rock a while on the front porch, smell the freshness of a much-needed rain shower, tend flower beds, re-connect.   

As we drove up the winding driveway to the house six years ago, we immediately knew it could be a home.  A place for family.

For daughter Elizabeth and Ben's wedding
For son Jason and Kate's first home in Arkansas
For daughter Katherine and Andy's engagement party 
For Thanksgiving dinners
For Christmas mornings
For pancake breakfasts
For sleep-overs
For jumping into leaf piles and
 off diving boards
For giggling grandchildren and
For Happy Birthdays 
For Happily-Ever-After bedtime stories

And just this week for. . .

  1. It's such a nice house--and a lovely family and a wonderful home.

    I think you picked the perfect place to be rooted. <3
