My Day At The Beach With Sumo

We've all seen the videos. Someone breaks out some fabric from a bag, hold it up in the air and 30 seconds later, there's a lounge in front of them. Seems cool enough, but to me, I'm always a bit skeptical.  When it comes to the beach, I've been more...

Christmas Houses

For us, our house was not unsentient matter—it had a heart, and a soul, and eyes to see us with; and approvals, and  solicitudes, and deep sympathies; it was of us, and we were in its confidence, and lived in its grace and in the peace of its  benediction....

Magothy River Manor

Sunday real estate browsing...... Located in Severna Park, Maryland is this impeccably cared for 1936 stone manor. And it's for sale! The home looks a little imposing from the outside, but the interior is incredibly lovely and light-filled.
