Sweet Gatherings Home

“You know how there are places you discover that pull you in? That was the way this sweet house felt the moment we set foot on the property. We felt compelled to linger as all the tensions of the day melted away and all that was left was peace and warmth. It certainly was the home we’d sought for so long. As our lives unfolded there, we discovered that its magic worked on others as well. We found ourselves throwing parties when we’d never thought of ourselves as party people. We had overnight guests more often and enjoyed the visits thoroughly. Folks seemed to be their most joyful selves at our house – as were we.”

The House That Loved Parties

“There were rumors about this couple – aren’t there always when a hint of magic whiffs through a community? It was said that these folks were “creative types,” lovers of all things beautiful, especially Nature. Some people said they were semi-hermits living in a strange house. Others said they were subversives plotting the overthrow of anything stark and drab and ugly. It was also said they were generous to a fault and you were most fortunate if you could call them friends. Through a series of coincidences (really, though, is there any such thing?) I did come to call these joyous people friends. It started with a purchase of their paintings (they actually were creative types) and eventually I was invited to their wondrous home on the most gorgeous piece of property I’d ever seen. They called it “The House That Loved Parties” because they enjoyed inviting friends over, decorating, cooking glorious dishes, encouraging inspiring and insightful conversations.

There really is something to aspiring to a life lived in light.”
