In The Country

First off, thank you so much to everyone for your patience while I was without a computer for the last several days.  I'm not even going to get into the details of the mess, but I am back in action on a brand new Mac and I am in serious L.O.V.E.  Since I have and iPhone and iPad, it was about time I upgraded my PC to a Mac.  What a difference it has already made in my life.  I still have a lot to sort through and get everything as organized as I like, but in the end it will all be worth it!

Now onto today's post...

I'm very much a city girl.  I love the convenience of having any store or place I need to get to in a very short distance.  Whether it's a great cup of coffee, a favorite boutique or an incredible restaurant, I want it all to be available when I need it.  I do admit that when I'm having a bad day, I've said I'm selling everything off and moving to the country.  I know I won't actually do this, but it does sound nice at times.  Less hustle and bustle and a simpler way of living.  Perhaps a weekend home would better fit the bill.

Imagine a warm and cozy breakfast nook...

A charming kitchen with vegetable bins at your fingertips...

A bathroom with a door that leads out into a serene garden...



For the guests, a relaxing retreat...



A sunny spot to write my blog...



Of course, I'll need a chic stable.  Heck,  I'll even take the two kids as part of the package...

And, a stylish area to sit and relax with a nice cup of coffee or glass of wine...


Who wants to come for a visit?
