  8. Cara Monique,

    Your photo is a treat for my soul, indeed. More inspirational than all the Christmas arrangements of the current blog world. Grazie e bacione! Ingrid from a rainy Umbria

  9. I want to be there, now—in my bunny slippers, sipping tea, hot cocoa, whatever. I just want to be part of its serenity.

    Monique, this brings back so many memories of the times Jim and I spent fishing on a nearby lake in the wee hours of the morning, BC (before children). We didn't catch much fish, but oh, the talks we had.
