Oh, my stars.
Between the good-hearted ham-ery of Phil
The gentleness and quiet confidence of the Schmill
The cheekiness of this man-child Ian
(oh, the band names he came up with for us....
Combinations of refrigerator magnets we had on hand)
The adorable silliness and timeless elegance of Irene
(dear, if you notice your vintage suitcases are missing through the open window one night..... he heee!!)
And the love I have for this man who has been a brother to me for years now...
My cup runneth over.
I pine for the last few days, to relive what it felt like to have a house alive with the business and bustle of six souls,
everyone laughing and discussing and obviously adoring each other...
Lots of tea and wine and food
These are the best friends.
Folks who know how to tend to a heart like a good gardener, how to leave a woman sad for no other reason than their absence.
Here's to more trips like this one in the future, and to our big show coming up in February!!
Thanks for being our guests, family!!!
