Ickworth House – A step back in time

Last Saturday, my family and I visited the amazing Ickworth House in Suffolk. We had a great time exploring the house and it almost felt like we had stepped back in time. The Servants quarters were the most interesting for me. Being a writer, even when I don’t plan to wear my writing hat, it just happens. There was something about the house that told of great stories and I could imagine some of the stories being told from the servant’s POV. Check out these two...

A Royal Wedding

#Royalwedding Well, I wasn’t planning on spending all day watching the Royal wedding today or even blogging about it, but I got to admit, there was so much beauty, cuteness, and love going around, I had to join in.

I was in Windsor a couple of weeks ago and I wish I had stayed a little bit longer.   Congrats to the...
