Suzanne gave us a tour of the 1875 farm house she is redoing and I was wildly enamoured with this wallpaper in the front parlor.
Suzanne had the workers indulge her and finish this room while still doing demo on the rest of the home, so that she would have a place to go and have faith in the project's completion.
So much work has been done already, and Suzanne has big plans for the home and grounds. She has a lot of people who love her and believe in what she is doing, while backing her up and helping her with the project too.
Even though it was her birthday, Suzanne fixed us a feast, at a lavishly set table. We stayed at her home the first night, and it was the coziest, lushest B&B you could ever visit. Big, ole. soft sofas, a warm and happy kitchen, everything was infused with Suzanne's over the top, generous soul. She is a dream hostess.
Not just because I can't wait to see her vision of her farmhouse fulfilled, (I know it is going to be beyond beautious), but because she is a person that I wished I could spend more time with. What fun weekend, I can only hope to repeat it again someday when all the refurbishments are done on the home.
