In memory of September 11th, which also happens to be my birthday, Amber has beautifully captured the true meaning of living in a smaller home through a lovely poem by Florence Bone and a collage of stunning images. Thank you Amber for the wonderful birthday treat!
"God send me a little home;
To come back to when we roam...
"One picture on each wall,
not many things at all.
"Wooden floors and fluted tiles;
wide windows, a view for miles
"Red firelight and deep chairs;
Small white beds upstairs.
"Great talk in little nooks;
soft colors, rows of books
"God send us a little ground;
Tall trees stand 'round.
"Homely flowers in fertile sod;
Overhead, they stars, O God.
"God bless thee when winds blow;
Our home and all we know."
