old country house blog


I woke up today…a bit confused
Is HAVEN over? 
I was just getting warmed up…
am I home?

Yes, I am home.
Yesterday, after packing it up, 
having breakfast with the cousins and 

driving the kids past the house I lived in as a teen in Atlanta…
…we hit the road!
Atlanta to Virginia…

The long 8 hour drive went into the night…
we got home at 11pm….
I had to make the kids ask me Oscar Trivia so I could stay awake.
back to my Old Country house and all of the things that make me
…well ME.

I have been processing the conference..
all the way home, all day.
So much to take in, assimilate, implement.
Things keep running through my mind, 
bits of sentences…words of advice
….Mr Goodwill Hunting
telling us 
…ideas shared, new friends made…
….laughter lightening the anxious air and 
touching stories generously shared.

I am no where near ready to give 
you a blow by blow and 
I am not even sure that will be my goal.
 however share some things I learned,
people I met…
New skills I acquired…
I have BIG plans!!!!

For now anyway…. I will share my photos…many are
  embarrassingly poor in quality
but they capture the moment.
 I am not going to put captions….
The pictures will do the talking!!!


Photographs and memories…..
