Since I read Under The Tuscan Sun I have dreamed of combing my TWO loves--Italy and restoring an old house.
So here it is in the flesh...my house in Umbria and my dream to renovate will now color all my thoughts.
I imagine making a large kitchen with beautiful views and a huge wood table that all our family and friends can eat at together. The water is fresh, the rooms are white and light and airy and the stars in evening have no rivals. I can even imagine how the air smells and how it feels on my skin. There would be a pool in the yard and the barn would be used as a guest house. Our kids and grand-kids would come to visit us and we would spend lovely days playing by the pool and relaxing in the olive grove.
Maybe it's too much Househunters International, but everyone needs a dream and a life-change has to start some where, right?
So this is mine...Bella Noce!
