Instagram Diary Entry #001
Cottages seem to crop up in children's literature a few times, if the princess can't have a castle then she'll probably settle for a nice little cottage in the woods like Snow White. Perhaps this lead to my dream of one day growing old in a calm small house with a traditionally red roof and oak doors, of course surrounded by the tranquillity of nature. But ever since I was a little girl cottages in the countryside, near parks and lakes have always been appealing to me. Whether it be because of the light stone-coloured bricks, the colourful flowers blossoming outside or even the warm cosy fire I've always imagined roaring inside, cottages have always seemed like comfortable sanctuaries; a get-away from the outside world. I've always lived near a big nature reserve with beautiful streams and pathways but it would be a nice change of scenery to live in the midst of it all. One day, perhaps, I'll find the perfect little cottage, but until then I'll continue with my musings.
