A Quick Retreat with Jane Austen

Inspiration this week is as they say, " few and far between." When I saw this delightful photo and quote from Jane Austen, via, it just fit how I am feeling.  I'm a homebody by nature, but this week I'm yearning for comfort and simple beauty within my home's you ever feel like that?
Sometimes pretty photos to gaze at help my brain shut off (I wish I had an off switch some days!).  These photos from Retreat seemed to help my mind relax quite a lot . . .
