happiness is











Hi everyone! let me start by saying thank you for all your b-day wishes really touched my heart. Now for the snow it was truly a special gift, it snowed a lot more that night but unfortunately i did not take more pics( but winter is coming) and i want to enjoy the fall a little more:)

I would like to share with you a few things, such as our day in NY, but i thought i would start with our harvest thanksgiving dinner party. It was wonderful, what i mean is i enjoyed it very much. Our friends arrived, some i have not seen in far too long( thank you for coming) they toured the house, warmed up by the fire, nibbled on hors d'oeuvres; such as warmed goat cheese roasted tomatoes and garlic, muhammara, olives, cheese and breads. then we headed out on a sunset walk minus the sunset(cloudy) . we walked out to the pastures where we got to see deer and the ponies. we went to meet clarabelle the cow and mike the horse, you must get a lick from clarabelle or the tour would be incomplete! then we headed to the corn maize where six adults managed to get lost, maybe the fact that it was dark helped, yes lets blame it on that! we also left someone behind:)! Then we headed back in, warmed up by the fire while we feasted on thanksgiving dinner. I loved having everyone here, to be able to share the farm house and a good meal with friends makes me so very happy! it makes a house feel like home and the fact that couples where arguing who will watch the house for us has to be a good sign right?!. we ended the night with apple crisps, pie, meringues and roasting marshmallow by the fire an experience my mum had never had and i am not sure she will ever have a smore again:)

thank you all for coming the friends that where with us at the farm and those who are visiting here!

*it was hard to pick up the camera and shoot but here is few from the evening!

ps. bill everyone wants your wing recipe!

oh your house certainly feels like a home from these pictures. what my boyfriend wouldn't give for a fireplace to sit near with his dogs! glad you could share this home with your loved ones.
