What a cute blog - this is my first time here I think. I love your town pictures - we, too, live in a historic town and I never thought of taking pictures of all the beauty. What a great idea that was. Thanks for sharing ~ ♥

What a quaint town! The blue house with the porch is my favorite. That's the kind of house I imagine as my dream home.

Hi Michelle~ I love the blue house and I've always admired the fence around the red house. But my fave photo is the one of the gazebo by the river. It's beautiful.
