oh, i feel like that every monday morning...but it IS nice to be home, right?
I love foghorns.
Same. I had never heard foghorns before we moved to Vancouver. Now I love them.
And I like your sunflowers in the vase!
One beautiful little sentence to convey so very much.
what a beautiful transition in images from the little cottage to home. I like the sound of foghorns too--taps into childhood memories from out on Long Island.
Home sweet home.
I grew up with foghorns. Freighters traveling the Great Lakes.Better than any valium.xo jane
Denise: what a good definition of home.I live in a quiet, green neighborhood now (it's definitively home), but sometimes I miss the clinking noises of the empty bottles going in the recycling boxes at 1am at night from the restaurant in the piazza below my Rome apartment...
It's so interesting, what we miss. It seems we don't often learn what those things will be until we are gone. Love imagining this description, Amelia.
From you photo, it looks as if a little of the cottage came home with you.
I believe you are correct, Rachael.
Welcome home. :)
I live in a neighborhood with many cars & buildings as well. My favorite part of each day is right as day breaks....very muffled sounds, church bells, birds, the light dapples through the trees....I read on my back porch with a cup of coffee as the city wakes up.
You've found the best part of the day, Teresa.
I love waking up to the foghorn, though it doesn't happen very often round here. (It's better than waking up to the neighbour's dog!)
That's my reality, too. But I must add to the list jackhammers, helicopters, and trains...the city.
Little reprieves, yes? So happy to happened upon your blog. Lovely.
I'm also recently home. Accommodating to a different sky and my body feels otherly organised. My atoms are re-settling into the shape they need to function here. Welcome back.
Welcome back to you too, Kate. I hope your atoms are feeling cozy.
Home is a good place. Pros and Cons to city & country, but I'm definitely an urban dweller. I'm just very particular about the parts of the cities I like for living in! I hope you are settling back in well and finding more things you love about it again.
welcome home. i love the contrast and symmetry in your cottage goodbye and your homecoming posts. i hope the cafes and museums and bookstores will be kind upon your return.
Yes. I know just what you mean. xo
I love the gentle feeling in this photo. Lovely words.
Thanks for a beautiful welcome home.
