My historian husband, Dean and I recently purchased a small, but charming house for our mid-life creativity project. Built in 1941, a prototype 4-room house design constructed a couple of dozen times in the historic town of St. Charles, Missouri during the WWII era. Our house was the first. We have named it Deanna’s Cottage, Dean and Anna’s cottage. Photos are to follow as we work through our ongoing projects. A love nest and enjoying the empty nest. No children or grandchildren, except for a short visit here and there. Refreshing for us. Our older feline will join us soon, as Celine is not adjusting with my daughter’s felines at the other house.
