Our stories today highlight some of the loveliest simple pleasures of the spring. A walk, a roadtrip, a day in the garden. We’ll start with one of my all time favorite stories and one that inspired me to write a whole book (coming soon!). It’s called Old Houses and if you’ve ever walked through a neighborhood and wondered about the stories of the houses you see, the people who have lived there, it is for you. Then we’ll load up the car and head out to The Hideaway for some time at the Cabin. Finally we’ll gather our trowels and seed packets and pace out the garden in Spring at the Allotment.   Subscribe for ad-free, bonus and extra long episodes now, as well as ad-free and early episodes of Stories from the Village of Nothing Much!

Our stories today are about family coming together, one member at a time, as they’re found and recognized.

Then we’ll watch the spring arrive, forsythia blooms and branches full of birds as we get to know each other in Toast and Marmalade. And finally, we’ll flip through the pages of the Village newspaper, till we’re stopped by a face that is new but instantly familiar in Marmalade and Crumb.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Hmmm. It's like the Hallmark channel in its charming setting and details. But without a plot (which I know was intentional,) without any romance, and with even more ads. But a really good podcast. I'd stick with this if it weren't for the ads.
