calm in the country...








Monday morning day-dreaming, spent swooning over images of country life in the South of France. Cool, calm, collected... a slower way of life with the perfect weather, fresh food, and ultimate relaxation. I can totally picture long, lazy breakfasts and afternoon bike rides with no real destination in mind... ahh so dreamy, right?

WOW! these pictures, and what you have written literally makes me want to book flights to south of france right now!

Long lazy breakfasts and late arvo bike rides sound like perfection to me.

I love your blog!

I LOVE the images you posted! Country style is a favorite of mine, so I'll need to thank you for the great inspiration! xo

Love how these are rustic in nature, yet possess an undeniably French refinement. I'd love to envision myself lounging with a glass of champagne & bowl of strawberries at that table under the big oak tree!

Oh so dreamy! I would love my future second home in Italy to look just like that :)

These images are so beautiful! I wish I lived on a vineyard somewhere in the south of France. . .

ahhh, that definitely is the good life. These beautiful pictures make me want to abandon Chicago for the countryside.

These photos are heavenly - would love to escape into this right now. Nothing quite as pretty to me as the French countryside.

I often dream of having my own country house, and this is exactly how I want it to look! It's so simple and quaint!
