Happy Monday, Escapists! Cottage-y goodness this morning! A charming French cottage at the end of a country lane, with an acre of land, in Normandy!
What if we used our tax refunds to buy a little country cottage somewhere, a refuge, a little safe hideaway? This cottage is particularly appealing because of the land – I can imagine it developing it into a permaculture garden, with me cooking stews in the kitchen with all the carrots and potatoes and leeks I would grow.
