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
and NEVER GIVE UP.
Come back next week my queens and celebrate IMAGINATION!
Happy Mothers Day to all my beloved friends!
