Growing up is "funny". Everything I expected or wanted changes on a daily basis, and my expectations continually turnover. The one consistent longing I have has is to live somewhere lush, green, and serene. I happened to stumble across Mimi Thorisson's blog through Elements of Style's blog (THANK YOUUUU) and am completely smitten and jealous of her lifestyle in the French countryside. Not only does she look like a Bond Girl, her photostyling alone is fantastic as well as the meals she composes.
What a charming and beautiful life-- its almost impossible to edit which pictures I want to share, so visit her blog, you'll be on there for hours!
