Once upon a time…
Isn’t that how many of the most wonderful stories begin?
I think my life is worthy of “Once upon a time”.
Once upon a time, there was a little girl who dreamed of far away lands, castles, cottages, knights, secret gardens, beautiful long dresses, and fairies. The little girl grew up and married Prince Charming, and they moved to a far away land and filled their humble little cottage with lots of princes and princesses.
There were seven little princes and princesses, but only five still live in the cottage – Prince Zach (12), Princess Maddie (10), Princess Emma (3), Princess Sophie (2), and Prince Silas (5 months). All of them are cottage-schooled. Those who have left the little cottage are Prince Josh (19 who is on a one year pilgrimage to study music), and the oldest, Princess Kate, married a Prince Charming of her own and they moved to a far away land of their own. Sadly, they don’t visit often, but they are happily busy raising their own little princess, Aliyah.
The little-girl-who-grew-up still dreams of secret gardens and beautiful long dresses, but she has her very own Prince Charming, and they live in a wonderful little cottage tucked away down a country road. She’s still looking for fairies. Especially ones who might help with the housework and the dishes.
And they all lived happily ever after.
So welcome to a little taste of my world. Ever After Cottage.
