Before I went to Pennsylvania to visit my friend Zoë and her mom Valerie, I spent some time with my friend Jennifer’s mom Shirley. Last fall Shirley sent me an email asking if I would give her some rug hooking lessons.

Plus, she has what I would consider the coziest house on the planet complete with wood stove, white walls, heavy doors, fat trim work and the most amazing wood floors you’ve ever seen. Her house makes me drool. Seriously, I need to make a special trip there with the HH so I can give him a tour of the place and say “Build this. This is the house I want to live in for the rest of my life.”
