    1. I was just flipping through that issue of Elle at the newstand. By any chance, do you know if that was formerly Photographer Jane Hunt’s home? I met with her ages ago…and her house was very similarly situated.

    2. I have visited Forks twice in the last month. Each time was equally overcast…I was pleased to find. You can see the Fork’s cloud bank in the distance as my mom and I ventured in from the north 3 weeks ago…here…

    I hope you’re having a gorgeous weekend, Julia! Thank you again for house hunting for all of us!

      Interesting about it looking like Jane Hunt’s house. I guess it could be, but I have no idea. Does anyone else? -Julia

    The newest issue of French Country Magazine is out!

    I don’t respect wasting $40K on rent a month. I know it’s her money and all, but no matter how rich I was, I just couldn’t do that.

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog the other day. I was first introduced to blogging on your site, after keying in ‘Cottage from The Holiday’… I’ve been hooked ever since. It meant a lot to me that you chose to read my blog. Lx

    I just read through your Twilight post and laughed. I was the same EXACT way. Determined I wouldn’t read it. Finally saw the movie when it came out on DVD..went and bought the book…fast forward…read all 4, bought the soundtrack. Etc. Sound familiar? So funny. Great post too…loved your humor. (Get a job already! LOL!!)

    I loved that NYT article. It will be nice if people quit obsessing about having a brand new house, too, which is especially prevalent where I live.
