I love having a quiet hour or two, sitting in my favourite reading spot with an icy glass of lemonade, and flipping through my decor books for inspiration.
Better Homes and Gardens second home ~finding your place in the sun is an old favourite, published in 2000, but the advice on searching for and purchasing a second vacation home is still valid. Very pretty pictures, too. We won't be buying a second home anytime soon, but I certainly would refer to it again whenever we do.
