I wanted to give you a little taste of my beloved Hadley Court. Hadley Court is my family’s summer home where I spent many happy summers during my childhood. Hadley Court is set on 60,000 untouched acres in Arkansas. The picture above is the courtyard at Hadley Court where I spent mornings with my mother while she drank her coffee. I believe this is the most peaceful place on earth. From the sound of the water trickling in the fountain, the sweet smell of pine trees, and the birds singing aloud~these are the simple pleasures I grew up with. Hadley Court is a beautiful home but I think family home describes it best. A large kitchen and dining table for family dinners and a large, cozy den for family gatherings. I love the fact that we didn’t have television or telephones and we simply enjoyed the company of one another. Its these simple pleasures that truly are the hallmarks for fine living.
