If you get cabin fever, drop by the Inn and have a complimentary cup of coffee, tea, or even a glass of wine by the fire. Oh, and bring a book if you like – it’s a wonderful place to read.

Looking Ahead to 2016 Here we are, entering the final days of 2015. As one year passes into another, I always ponder many hopes, dreams, and desires.

I make it a goal to find a peaceful appreciation for the way it all went, instead of how I wanted it to transpire. For myself, 2015 was active, challenging, expensive, full of changes, fast – indeed a...
