My deepest sympathy on the loss of your sweet mum, Charlotte. You and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.


Wow! What beautiful images and that white peacock!!! Have fun doing what is prompting you not to unpack.


So love looking at the your pics! It really was amazing in every way!! I keep thinking ...I wonder what they are doing in Vermont right now...xoxo

A wonderful collection of photos. I try and convince myself it's nearly as good as being there! But I'm not succeeding.

I am long overdue for another Vermont happ'nin'. this all looks so delicious - and even more so, now that you are a bonified local part of it. how wonderful that you have been able to so fully create the beginnings of a beautiful new chapter, just as the page was turned on the plaintive one that came before. sending much love, admiration, and encouragement to a favorite Renaissance woman xoxox


Happy Sunday! I am hailing you from Ontario. I happened to skip merrily through your IG feed this morning and came upon your recent news. How sad to learn of your Mom's passing. She seemed a kind and compassionate lady and always looked utterly fabulous. I hope she is reunited with her true love. Peace to you and your family while you process your loss. And then...Vermont! Although Canadians, we lived in Burlington, right across from campus, for a short time in the '80's. Vermont is a special place in all of America. Wonderful choice. Best wishes for healing and joy in your new home.(You may remember (maybe not...) I emailed you once about the loss of your canine soulmate, while I was pining for a lost dog.) Courage & Calm...

So sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. Mothers are dear to us all; some of us are fortunate in deed to have more than one. My mother in law passed 10 days after your dear mother. She too was loved by a large rambunctious family of 9 children 36 grands and 67 great grands... and 1 great great grand. I too am sure that they are loving where they are and smiling down at us. Thanks for all you do.
