summer social

As one raised in the land of Southern hospitality, I love living in a world that’s becoming more and more social by the moment.

walk-ins welcome

When Rick and Bonnie Dudley’s two daughters moved out, the family’s sprawling Connecticut home of nearly 17 years felt empty. The couple decided they wanted more than a new house. They wanted a new lifestyle. The first step: Find a smaller house in the same neighborhood. “I wanted a home with character and space to entertain,” Bonnie says, “and Rick wanted a boat.” They came across a small, 1930s waterfront cottage that had two things going for it: It had a dock where Rick could park the boat he dreamed of owning. And, more important, “it had heart,” Bonnie says. “You feel it when you walk in the door.” The couple moved in, remodeled, and waited for empty nest syndrome to hit. It never came.
