Dreams

I came across this picture the other day and had a deja vu moment. I felt like I might of been here before? It might sound weird, but sometimes when I dream about something I remember little things about what your dream was about and how it looked like. I’m positive my dream looked like this picture! Who knows maybe dreamland might exist after all? I hope when I dream tonight I can return to this beautiful place 🙂 I’d like to explore it!

Dream Home

If I could design how I would like my future dream house to look like when I am older, I would choose a cottage style house! Something about it makes it look cozy and beautiful. Having a beautiful front yard and back yard with all types of colorful flowers would give it a wonderful touch and would make people waking by stop and gaze at just how beautiful my house is! This quote summarizes what a home means to me. “Home, the spot of earth supremely blest, a dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest.” I hope that everyone who reads is living in their dream house right now 🙂

Destination of the Week: Kyoto, Japan!

One of Kyoto poet Buson’s most famous haikus reads: “On the one-ton temple bell a moon-moth, folded into sleep, sits still.” If Japan is the temple bell, Kyoto is the moth—tranquil, delicate, intricate, and wildly mysterious, centuries after the first outsider was drawn to its woodsy hilltop Shinto shrines and rarefied Buddhist temples. The city is about to get an influx of luxury hotels, making room for more tourists, but for now a walk along the Kamo riverbank still reveals the gentleness and gracefulness of Japan’s ancient capital. The Shigemori Residence features a dynamic Zen garden designed by mid-20th-century landscape architect Mirei Shigemori.

When to Go: Hanami (cherry blossom viewing) season typically is late March through mid-April. Fall foliage peaks in November!
