I have the privilege of appearing this week as a guest writer on the beautiful website created by Lynn McBride. Lynn, the fortunate lady, lives in a castle in France! When she lived in the U.S. she was regional magazine editor for Meredith Publishing (Better Homes & Gardens and Traditional Home). She currently writes for magazines in the U.S. and UK. Need I say more? See for yourself at her lovely website, especially while she has me on her page. Don’t forget to leave a comment while you are over there enjoying yourself. Ya’ll come back!
