The Alpine Homestead Bed & Breakfast| Lindsey Mix Photography in Wilmington, DE

December 30, 2014  •  1 Comment

The Alpine Homestead is this incredible "little" house way up in the boonies of the Adirondacks. It's the kind of place that lives up on a tiny hill, nestled in the mountains, that just makes your worries melt away. You can see it as your drive down Rt 9 just welcoming you with its bright orange door and beautiful green shutters. If you want to take a look, or go for a visit, you can check them out here. If you book a room, just make sure you tell them I sent you!

My in-laws decided to call this place home shortly after my husband and I met. In the years since then, they've turned it into the most beautiful, quaint, successful Bed & Breakfast you can imagine. It's home to us, but I suspect if you were to ask anyone of their guests over the years, they'd say it felt like home too.

We alternate our holidays between my husbands family and mine. That means this year, we were up at the B&B for Thanksgiving. I struggle with my photography during family time. I rush to pick up my camera when I see a tender moment or a sweet embrace...and sometimes when I'm sure people expect me to reach for it, I just sit. Why? Those are the moments I want to keep in my heart.

There was a study done recently that said the more pictures you take, the less likely you are to have a true memory of that event, instead you remember the pictures. That's a tough pill for a photographer to swallow...but one I took a full dose of.

So, I have some pictures from our visit, and in another blog post down the road you'll see some of Christmas from my family, but what you won't see are the memories I hold in my heart. Those are just for me.

I came across this, this morning. Feeling somewhat sad about the thoughts of selling, but I was reminded to hold on tight to the memories that are stored in my heart....but your artistic eye makes them dance. Love you. Peg
