Three in One Blog

  This month is a busy blogging month!   
  
I am participating in  March Photo A Day Challenge, brought to life by Fat Mum Slim. Also, March's NaBloPoMo hosted by BlogHer.  And preparing for Blogging from A to Z Challenge April 2012 by pre-writing the blogs for next month.





Speaking of A to Z Challenge.  Last year, I began my first participation in this blogging event by introducing the village we are living in, A for Ankeveen.

Since today's photo of the day should be your neighbourhood, I will be recycling both photo and post from the 1st of April, 2011, my first entry for the A to Z Challenge, for today's blog.

The entrance to our village, our neighbourhood

Living in the village, for someone like me who was born in a city and almost lived her entire life in metropolises, is like walking in many scenes of various books I have read throughout my life.  It is like being transported in idyllic surroundings of Brother Grimms,  Astrid Lindgren's writings, to name a couple of my favourites.

I am very happy that our girls are growing up not only  with nature surrounding us but learning how to have appreciation of  simplicity in village life.

We are born city mice, now basking in the life of country mice! Living a dream.

Are you living in the place that resembles the one you dreamt of in your head while reading the books in your youth?
