“Magdalene stands as a witness to the truth that in the end, love is more powerful than all the forces that drive women to the streets.” The women I met inspired me with their stories of lives healed by love.
While there, I, of course, had to check out the pretty courtyard in home
and saw a few opportunities for me to add some input for improvements.
The last of dogwood’s fall color
One of the things I was thrilled to see was the vegetable garden that they had started this summer.
This is a project that I can sink my fingers into!

Another new branch of Thistle Farms is their Thistle Stop Cafe. Here’s their cozy outdoor seating
And their deep patina floors came from Vice President Al Gore’s tobacco farm buildings
Great food and one of the best Chai Tea’s I’ve ever had.
I adore the products that the women make – lotions and soaps. Tuscan Earth is my favorite scent.
