France. The french countryside. Brittany. I could live here, truly I could~
Today, while meandering through one of my many french websites that I frequent, I happened upon this lovely home. For sale no less. 29 acres, two lakes, two buildings, old, full of character, loaded with charm, did I mention old?
I think that we all need dreams. I certainly do~ Don't get me wrong, I love my 1928 farm house! I love our property, our old barn, the gardens, the chickens, the view. And if I am not going to live in the french countryside, then this is exactly where I want to be.
But to wake up each morning here, the sound of birds, church bells in the distance. A cup of cafe on the terrace, riding my bike into town to buy a baguette which I would carry home in my bicycle basket along with the wildflowers I picked, of course wearing a darling skirt and cute shoes. Oh yes, I dream, I dream a lot of this place~
So, for now, I will try and take what I can from the french - their food, their gardens, their way of life, and I will try and make our little piece of heaven here in the states just a little more french.
And I will keep taking those french lessons... Just in case!
