My Favorite Home Pictures
Going on a journey
A mile or two from home
Packing a little something
To dream of romance and write.
I''ll cook a wild cranberry scone,
Play to violin tunes and sing
And remember that these roses Are the ones that heaven sent!

Make your destination the place that brings you peace---where the virtues of home are held most dear:
