Happy Boxing Day

I just can't resist showing you this photo of the first cottage where we lived in England. It is such a sweet photo and also might remind some of you of a summer day.
Thank you for all of the lovely holiday greetings. As you can see, I have not gotten to my comments or blog visiting as of yet, but I promise to get there. I have been enjoying every moment with my family while we are all together. Sooner, rather than later, we will all be back to being spread about. In other words, I have been focusing on the many beautiful gifts of my life over the last few days...and all my blogging friends are not an exception.

In the meantime, have a Wonderful Boxing Day and Bask in the Glow of the Season!

This is a precious cottage. Just the sort I'd love to stay in myself. I am glad you are basking in the love of your family while you can. It sounds great. Happy Boxing day to you.

What an adorable cottage. And so Britishy. It's everything I would love about England.
Glad you are enjoying your holidays. Plenty of time to catch up next year.

Oh I love this cottage. It is the type I used to paint. Still would love to paint. how fun to have lived in one.
I havent been on much either. Not posting for a few days. Just needed some time off since everyone else was going to be gone and we have company for a few days.
Will be back in the new year. Enjoy your family while you can. Hugs.

Hello Dear Suki!

This cottage was really lovely. When we first moved to England our cottage was not ready for us, so we were able to spend a month in this lovely holiday cottage! You would really smile at the inside. You would have also loved it a lot!

Love,

Kim

Thanks Cris! I do have to grab every moment when I can with my children...they are at that age when they are building their own lives...which is also a beautiful thing to watch unfold.

Love,

Kim

Oh Dianne, thank you for your understanding with the blogging.

This little cottage was in a small village in South Central England...just outside the New Forest. Do you know the area?

Love,

Kim

What a beautiful cottage, Kim! Life must have been so nice in there! I love the roof!!!!

Kim said...

Hi Andrea,

It was lovely there to be sure. That thatch roof was amazing to be sure. I was lucky enough to be able to watch a thatcher put a new roof on a cottage...it was a fascinating process.

Have a Beautiful Day, Andrea!

Love,

Kim
