Qu'est-ce qu'on fait?

Dedicated to my angel of a mother, who humbly taught me how to make something from nothing-

What do you do when you have a big imagination

expensive ideas that require a substantial purse

grandiose visions of the best that both nature

and man-made opulence have to offer

but have a humble pocketbook?

You quickly come back down to reality

never letting go of your vision

and then you plan by observing the rich texture of the details necessary to achieve your goals.

Then you gradually scale down, research, and see what fits into your lifestyle and budget


and finally MAKE IT HAPPEN.

You start by looking at the small and simple things that are attainable

to add the magic and color of your dreams

to your reality.

Rabbit Hill started out as a house

but has now become our home

by the audacity of our imaginations

and the hard labor of our love.

It may not be Le Hameau de La Reine, YET....

but it is our Dulce Domum, our Home Sweet Home

and though the destiny may not always turn out to be what you originally envisioned

the journey always turns out to be more than you ever expected when you step into your hopes and dreams with your best foot forward




Come back next week my queens and celebrate IMAGINATION!

Happy Mothers Day to all my beloved friends!
