"The first fall of snow is not only an event, but is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up to find yourself in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?"

  2. Thank you for sharing your lovely photos with us and the link to the history of the house. Many of my ancestors were settlers in the midwest, including Illinois, so your post is especially interesting to me!

  6. Joyce, the words of waking up to a new world is very true. I have never seen such beauty as the snow here last week. When I went to bed, it was not that way.
