Seasons of Change

April 8, 2016 by: Diane Rogers

We arrived as new innkeepers at Pinecrest in the dead cold of early February, greeted by guests and frozen drain pipes but such is life in a house solidly built in 1905. Spring has definitely arrived at the bed & breakfast, bringing the beauty of the redbuds blooming outside the sleeping porch, our most favorite room to sit with a cup of coffee or wine and just take a moment to breath deep and relax. Each afternoon, we entice our guests to sample the homemade desserts on the sideboard in the dining room.Cookies are good in all seasons But my favorite part of the day is the early morning, when the house starts to come alive for another day, when we all wake up renewed from a restful night of sleep: the footfalls on the staircase, the quiet voices as guests greet each other on the sun porch, the birds chirping as they find haven in the yard. Even through all of this change, as I start the preparations for breakfast, the sun peeks through the kitchen window and I am reminded that “today is a good day for a good day!”
