This field of poppies won’t make you sleepy (name that movie), but it will make you almost crash your car as you drive by.
Just about 15 miles outside the town I live in, are the outskirts of the town I grew up in. It’s a tiny little town, mostly a farming community (hence this beautiful field), where everyone knows everyone. When I was growing up there, we didn’t even have one stop light in the town. Gas was .99 a gallon and it was common to get stuck behind a tractor or a combine on the road. We never locked our doors at night, we didn’t even ride with seatbelts until I was probably in middle school. Child abduction never even entered our minds. We were completely safe, and naive to the dangers of bigger cities.
So recently when I drove out there again, I passed by this field and I was reminded of what a great little small town I grew up in. And while I couldn’t wait to leave that place after high school, couldn’t wait to experience life outside of small town America, now...now I’d love to go back.

SMALL TOWNS IN EUROPE WORTH VISITING ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For fairytale charm in a beautiful alpine setting, visit Annecy, France. Pastel buildings line the canals in the old town, where you can find countless cafes, restaurants, and shops. One of the main attractions in this town is Lake Annecy, a pristine blue lake lined with mountains. Grab an ice cream or beer and enjoy the view of the lake, or rent a boat and explore the water yourself! For dinner, try some authentic French fondue or raclette, a melted cheese dish popular in the alpine region. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We did it! We Just closed on our first remodel. It was our first home, && it was so rewarding turning this old house into a beautiful new home for someone else. This was the first flip, and the first of many adventures together doing what we love!
