we spent 7 months living on the coast of washington while writing our second book fairy village and loved being so close to nature all of that time. now we are back in city and i find myself missing the quiet beauty of nature all around me. i still have never been to a place where i've truly felt at home though. i think i would feel that in england or france, but in the countryside not the city. i have had beautiful gardens and have felt my spirit go to another place when i have been in beautiful settings in nature, a beautiful retreat for my soul, but i know if i were to walk in the meadows and gardens and pathways in europe, i would feel at home at last.
