Moving to the country after having lived in big cities like New York and Chicago for most my life had my friends worried. However, I naturally embraced the slower pace, quiet, and opportunity to read, decorate, garden, and reflect. For me, living in the country means focusing my life on the natural beauty around me. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

That said, entertaining is still a large part of life in the country. I have loved having access to so many beautiful hand made dishes and glassware, as well as all of the fresh, locally grown flowers, greens and vegetables.
