Happy After Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a wonderful day. Here's what my day was like and then it's on to Christmas. We went to Connecticut to DH's brother's and SIL's home. This is their house. It's an old Victorian with an addition on the side. They have spent many years fixing it up.

This is their front yard. They live on the ocean and those islands out there are the Thimble islands. It's fun to do a boat trip around the many Thimble islands as I did years ago.

My niece got married between those trees a number of years ago. It was a great wedding. You can barely see a little island out there with a house on it. There are lots of little islands like that with summer homes on them just perched there waiting from someone to visit. I would love to go in all those cottages. I don't think I'd especially like getting the groceries there though!

And here is the room I spent most of the day in. It was a mild day with some sun so it was wonderful to sit there and just look at the view. When it got dark, one of the big houses across the way was all lit up with white lights. Good food, good company and a beautiful day with much to be thankful for. A perfect day in my book.


  1. Wow, what a beautiful home and I love the room you spent most of your time in... I would want to never leave!

  2. Wow, their house is just glorious!! My favorite style of house is a Victorian and theirs is just beautiful. But the setting is to die for!! So you were pretty close to me over Thanksgiving. Glad you had a nice day!

  8. I LOVE that house. I love sun rooms and in my life I only live in one place that had one. So So pretty!

  9. Now that is my dream house. What a perfect setting. I would have spent all day looking at the view.

  10. What a fabulous home!
    I would never leave my home if I had a view that gorgeous!:) That sun room would be perfect for me. Of course I would want the view too. Kind of hard to get a view just like it in the middle of Kansas though!:)
    Thanks for sharing!

  13. Wow! This home is a WOW!!
    Such a lovely place to be for a holiday!


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
