Sometimes I miss my cottage-by-the-sea routine, but I don’t wish I were still going. I love being at home with my husband, friends and church. I will always long for silence, solitude and simplicity, and I still sometimes I like to be alone, but I get all that here at home, and when I take my two-week solo trips to Florence. Florence-on-the-Arno is my new cottage-by-the-sea.
(I can't find my cottage-by-the-sea photos. They must have gone to 'the cloud.'
