An Update to the Basement Steps

Basement steps - after - The 2 Seasons

As of this week, we have lived in our townhouse for five years.  And what a fast five years they have been.  Can life slow down, please?  Just a little?  We have thoroughly enjoyed our down-sized life and haven’t looked back with regret even once.  Of all the rooms in our place, though, the basement […]

A Painting of My House

House Painting

A few years ago, Mom made a special request for her Christmas gift.  She asked for a painting of one of the houses we lived in when my brother and I were growing up.  Our family lived in three different houses before my parents down-sized to their townhouse, and she had paintings of just two […]

Jordan, Yankee, and Little Miss are back in Charlotte and getting their family settled in, so I get to  do the selections solo again this week, and what a week it has been!  So, even though it says this post is published by Jordan, she’s still on “maternity” leave.


Ginger and Lemon Shortbread Cookies

Lemon Ginger Shortbread - The 2 Seasons

The combo of ginger and lemon in a shortbread cookie is a pleasant surprise.  I made a batch of these goodies on a rainy Tuesday afternoon, and along with a cup of tea, they were a true afternoon delight.  The ginger makes them a great cookie for cool weather, and the freshness of lemon makes […]
