I had hoped to get much packing and list ticking done over the weekend but as is typical in times of stress, I got struck down by a nasty head cold. Runny nose, hacking cough, general self-pity – you know the one I mean? It’s obvious my body is telling me to take a deep breath and just slow down. So that’s exactly what I am going to do. This week I am on an official go-slow. Ben Howard on i-pod, quick and easy dinners and a bunch of new books downloaded on my kindle. I also wanted to post a house that reflected my newfound relaxed mood. This Alabama lakeside home is exactly what I wanted to post. It’s a Pinterest favourite so you might have seen it before but I didn’t think anyone would mind seeing this beauty again!
