Cottage is a lifestyle, a frame of mind. Although we live in a restored, 4-level dairy barn, circa 1900, it is our cottage. To me “cottage” is living simpler but better, making the most of what we have, and living in the unexpected moment… Serendipity is a happy accidental discovery. Can serendipity be cultivated? I like to think that the more aware we are of our surroundings, the more occurrences serendipitously present themselves. They were there all along; but we were not awake to their presence. Does a tree falling in the forest make a sound if no one is there to hear it? Can serendipity exist if no one recognizes it? What was your unexpected moment this week?
