we stayed in a restored historic home that is now a bed and breakfast

The Queen of the Valley Inn

Oh, Kim - it looks very special -- both peaceful and melancholy. I love the light in your photos, particularly that last one. It's like a blues song --

I missed your last post! We are the same age and practically share the same birthday!! I didn't get a glorious weekend away in such a lovely place though ... but my kids took me out for a meal and I got some fab presents.

A belated Happy Birthday Kimmie :D

And of course I would have to come late to the party and I didn't even bring a gift! Love your mug. Like you, I'm not sure what it is, either.

But I am sure I would love that Inn. Hauntingly beautiful, and ideal for this time of year.

Hope your birthday was as great as YOU!!
