This Is Not My Beautiful House


Yesterday was one of those perfect winter days that you only get once or twice a season.  The sun was out and melting all the snow that fell on us last week, and so it was with great relish that I found myself tramping through the remains of the snow with an old friend on our way to brunch with another pal.

We feasted on pear pancakes, turkey sausage pesto sandwiches, huevos rancheros, and all the Intelligentsia coffee we could hold at the Bongo Room, and then it was off to the many little boutiques in Andersonville for some light shopping.  (I didn’t buy anything, but that’s for a different post.)

My original plan was only to blog once a month.  Now, with the weather the way it was, I couldn’t help driving myself and Miss M. over to a beautiful 1840s farmhouse for a quick photo session after I got home.

I’m in love with this place.  This particular house rests on a patch of forest preserve land that also includes a mill, another farmhouse, a lake, and countless trails.  It’s my favorite spot to bring Moxie, especially in the fall–right at the beginning of November is the best time.

Everything I’m wearing, apart from the boots and purse, came as part of the several Stitch Fixes I’ve received.  I’ve had a lot of hits (shown here) and misses (in the burn pile), and so I’ve made the decision not to keep subscribing.  Plus, I think it’s important for me to cultivate my own personal style, which means someone picking out my clothing is out of the question.
