We went looking at houses today, mostly to stir things up a bit, and get the energy flowing again. Of course we ended our journey at River House; like moths to a flame, we can't resist its simple charms.
The house sits quietly, on a quiet hill, overlooking the quiet river. It doesn't feel lonely, as some empty houses (and even some not-empty ones) do. River House feels patient, like a tree is patient, or a mountain. There's nothing excessive or superfluous about it. It's a simple house, and all the more alluring for it.

“Festive decorations are a gift from your heart to the hearts of those who enter your home. They simply and sweetly say, ‘love lives here,’ and, ‘we were expecting you, welcome!’” ~Dolley Carlson
