Where the Quaint Things Are

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time."

~ John Lubbock


While I am on my week long sabbatical I thought you might like to visit the blog my first born has created. It is entitled "Where The Quaint Things Are". Her blog is vastly different than mine. Yet, there exists a common thread that is woven throughout our lives as women. The Fashionista is deep, poetical, musical, and captures the spirit of youth in her musings.

I truly adore her.
