Good morning friends! How are you? Today is the 19th anniversary of September 11th, a day that is etched in the minds of us all. Nineteen years later I can still remember exactly where I was when it all happened. My thoughts and prayers are with all of those who lost their lives and their families today.
I have officially moved on to Fall, even though it is still horribly humid and hot here and Fall does not officially start until September 22nd. I am in the fall mindset, cosy candlelit evenings, piles of books and magazines, comfort food and copious amounts of hot chocolate. I have lots to share today, I hope that you find something that you enjoy.

Wait for Me! is written with intense warmth, charm, and perception. A unique portrait of an age of tumult, splendor, and change, it is also an unprecedented look at the rhythms of life inside one of the great aristocratic families of England.
