For as long as I've needed to wear glasses, I've owned a pair with pink lenses. Through them the world looks more inviting. It's how I prefer to see home, family, and friends. As I was checking this half-baked blog prior to publishing, my husband, was leaning over my shoulder. Reading my intro to Bishop Hill, he suggested there may not be a shovel large enough to serve up what I'm dishing out! Can't help myself though. I was born and raised in New York, but a quiet country life is for me! I find there is elegance to simple living that is too often overlooked. I dwell on it. And so, this what you can expect to find here: the highlights of life in the slow lane. Just ahead is Bishop Hill, Illinois. Hope to see you soon.
