It seems, every single day….someone truly amazes me.
Have you had that happen ? The absolute kindness of a stranger. Or a new friendship that happens almost instantly? An authentic, down to earth friendship and support of a friend…whether they live next door, in another country, or in an all together different way of life.
Somehow ~ this beauty of others just shines through.
Well…I have a friend..We met on TWITTER. Yes, I am madly in love with twitter, and I am not afraid to scream it from the roof top Why ? Because of days like this. Because of the beauty of friends like this. Let me introduce you to
Jessica Gordon Ryan ~ the gal behind THE ENTERTAINING HOUSE.
This is what my friend Jess wrote about moi and my tree house…..
All photographs courtesy, Lynne Knowlton. I would love to have the opportunity, one day, to meet Lynne, to climb her tree house, to share a bottle of champagne (my gift, Veuve Clicquot, of course!) and to talk about everything and anything for hours at end, to not tire when the sun sets and not to tire when the sun rises… I’ll slide down the slide and climb on to this wonderfully inviting swing. And then I will recite my favorite childhood poem written by Robert Louis Stevenson…
How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside.
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown,
Up in the air I go flying again,Up in the air and down!
Won’t you please pay a visit to my dear friend Lynne’s blog and read all about her, her family and the amazing tree house in her back yard!
