Dream Come True
Since 2nd grade, I have loved the book "Little Women". I reread it this summer and still maintain it is one of the most romantic books ever written. As one of our last jaunts before leaving, Luke kindly agreed to chauffeaur me to Concord so that I could visit Orchard House, where Louise May Alcott and her family lived when she was an adult. It was seriously almost a religious experience for me! Here's a picture of two little women. (No, I am not that bulky - my jacket pockets were just filled with gloves and baby accessories - May in New England and it was frigid!)
The top picture is of Fruitlands, Bronson Alcott's failed experiment at a communal, Utopian society. (vegetarianism in the 1800s = bad idea!). The original home is the red building at the back. It's located off a ridge in Harvard, MA. Isn't it a gorgeous view?
