This is my office in our cottage on Lake George. It’s paneled in warm wood and the shelves are filled with items that have significance or bring me comfort — photos in birch bark frames, fir scented candles, my first thesaurus, tin soldiers from when my son was a boy, a jar of Le Mer face cream.
The office is small and cozy and my dog Woody is often curled up inside his crate next to me. When I look out the door, I see water, out the window I see woods. The space makes me feel calm, protected and contemplative.
Lee Woodruff is the author of three books. “In an Instant” was a New York Times bestseller about her family’s journey to heal after her husband was injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq. Her first work of fiction, “Those We Love Most” is out in September.
