Formalities and Refinements

"...she is the kind of girl who lacks all the formalities and refinements of life, and we have to do a little extra to make her understand. You know formalities are good things sometimes. They are like fences to keep intruders out and hedges to keep in the sacred and beautiful things of life."

Re-Creations, by Grace Livingston Hill, 1924


  1. Thanks for stopping by Missouri Thursday!

    It sounds like your full household was a lot of fun - fun for Luc to snap all those photos! My 7 year-old takes better photos than I do. Kids today DO have a lot of photo luxury!

    I LOVE that backyard playset!

    I'm sorry the house is so quiet. I try to hear my mother-in-law as she says the same thing, so that I appreciate the chaos a little more right now.

    Again, thank you for the visit!
    God Bless!

  2. That's a great quote! Hope you are having a nice weekend!
