Thinking About : My Dining Room

I'm back to my seasonal need to tweak everything inside the house. This happens every fall, it's that whole nesting thing. Our time outdoors is limited, daylight is waning, and we begin to nestle into our winter ways (I'm so damn poetic today). We spend a lot more time in the living room, even eating meals at the dining room table (novel huh?). It's nearly impossible for my mind not to wander READ MORE
