Brittany has a rich history with rolling countryside, cobblestone streets, and quaint farmhouses dotted throughout the landscape. Ahhhhhh . . .
The couple in the show didn't pick the farmhouse I would have gone for. If you watched that episode, I liked the charm of the first home that was close enough to walk to nearby pubs, boutiques, and bistros.
But I would have taken any of them!
I do love my house built in 1973 even with its popcorn ceilings and outdated (not in a cool way) bathrooms. When we moved, we had to find a house in the same school district we were in and that's tough on a tight budget, but we did it.
Houses on the Missouri side in areas like Brookside, Waldo, and Hyde Park, have so much more charm, but maybe someday when the birdies have left the nest. (Although after moving Jason's comic book collection, I swore we would never move again. Oh, and there were my boxes and boxes of Broken dishes - okay!).
So will I ever live in a house like these in Brittany, France? Most certainly not, but hey, it's fun to dream and a visit isn't out of the question!
Having spent most of my life in the midwest, I can't imagine living by a beach! Would that be enough motivation to keep me off of donuts?
