To Live the Life of India.

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

I don't know if it's the dreary weather, or the fact that I am at the point in my pregnancy where I am getting too big to comfortably move, but right now I am longing to live a simpler life;  a life like India Hicks. In reality I am zipped up in a winter coats, scarves, and rain boots, but I have to admit that in my head I am barefoot on the beach, watching my two kids run naked through the sand (yes in my fantasy I have already given birth, made it through the sleepless nights, and oh yeah, my kid walks.) No traffic, no trains, no crowded grocery stores. Just a life filled with fruit trees, long days on the beach, and tan tow haired little boys. Sounds heavenly, right?

I remember seeing a spread on the flawless Ms. India in Cookie a few years ago, and those images of her free lifestyle have really stuck with me. For us, a life like this will only happen while on vacation, but on this rainy Tuesday I can dream of days filled with sunshine, barefoot kiddies, and of course that fabulous bohemian wardrobe...










While I am dreaming of paradise (and stealing borrowing someone's life) can I also have this amazing home? Seriously, the girl is living the dream.











Oh, to live the life of India...

Gorgeous home and what looks like a fabulous lifestyle. I remember that Cookie spread - had me green with envy too! I think the nearest I'd get is to buy her candles 'Island Living' at Crabtree & Evelyn!!!

It's snowing in Whistler. Who do I talk to about trading my home for hers? Even just for the rest of the day today?

If only...to be a rich and fabulous aristocrat like India Hicks. sigh

Its drizzle here in Scotland, so this is SO appealing. Funnily enough, I have had a huge clear out and ordered white throws because I am craving an 'airier' feel. Maybe its just the time of year but this hits the spot, so beautiful.

I know how you feel. I just got back from a trip to Clearwater Beach, FL and my hubby and I kept asking ourselves, "Why do we live in RI?" Some people really do live the life...

I grew up in India, with a life like that before I moved to UK. Oh How I wish I can go back to it!!

And you don't have to be super rich to have a life like that in India.....
