Another Anniversary is here. Tomorrow my husband and I will be married 26 years on Guy Fawks Day.
Hard to believe all this time has gone by. My son is already going on three weeks married. Unbelievable to me.
So my sweet husband took me for a long weekend away. We stayed at a lovely inn, one of our favorites and we had the best dinners and a lovely ride and enjoyed each others company and the company of our sweet friends. My birthday is on the 12 of this month as well and I was surprised by the loveliest gathering and lunch during my visit.
The weekend was perfect.

A magnificent Halloween day. Look at those colors.
After a weekend away I'm back home and the wheels are turning. My married son's room is about to be restored. After almost twenty years of growing up in a room, bouncing baseballs against the wall, basket balls, hockey sticks, soccer balls, nail marks, atleast 5 coats of different color paint layers, poster residue, hooks that although they claim are easy to come off and non damaging to the walls really are, are all about to be sanded and taped and made new again.
So if you've ever looked at a pottery barn catalog or rented a cottage in a charming town for vacation, you have probably seen a photo or been in one of those charming rooms where there are always two matching antique beds with the patchwork quilts and comfy blankets. My husband thinks I'm a bit strange for wanting to do this to my son's room but I am.
So I found these lovely matching beds.
I thought they were so so beautiful.
I'm excited to begin. There will be painting involved and alot of spackle to get the room the way I see it but all good things take some time.
Yesterday I found the prettiest bench along with these matching quilts. It was a very productive day.
