The Perfect Autumn Evening

Ahh, welcome the arrival of autumn! It's a season that brings a lift my soul and to the senses -- the sounds and smells of an outdoor fire drifting through a crisp evening, the beauty of the trees as they display their plaid coats, and the enjoyment of sharing a bottle of wine among friends under a starlit canopy.

I do wish that I had a gathering place such as this featured in this month's Southern Living. Landscape architect, David N. Brush, designed this lovely retreat. He and his family happen to be dear friends of mine. He, without a doubt, knows how to capture the quintessence of a glowing autumn evening...so dreamy.

Hi Courtney!

I love the new blog look. Very bright and cheery.

I got my Southern Living in a few days ago. I've just skimmed through it. That's cool that you know the land scape designer.

Autuumn is my very favorite season. I love the cooler weather. Hoping some of it makes it's way down here soon.:)
