July 10th – Magical Homes

There are any number of unique homes in Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan. Driving down any street, you are guaranteed to find at least a couple of magical residences. Today, I have photos to share of just a few of my favourite. 💞

Verandahs are everywhere!
How magical is that! This house was built by the local doctor. It is for sale right now for just under 350k.
South Carolina romance in Southern Saskatchewan 💞
This one is showing its age but I love the verandah! (I am pretty sure that my parents best friends used to live in this house.)
A brick house with a verandah! 👍
Pretty magical for a home in small town Saskatchewan!
This home with the adorable rooftop deck has a gorgeous yard!
One summer, I dated a boy who lived in this brick house. We were both sixteen. It was magical! 😂

It is amazing how many fantastic homes there are in Gravelbourg – and how well they have been maintained for generations. I have no idea who designed the early homes in this town or how they had the resources to build them. They obviously had a vision and the determination to carry it out.

As much as the infrastructure of this town has constantly been modernized over the years, I love how they have stayed true to their history. Even the new homes in town have the style and character to blend in with the overall ambiance.

Wishing all another beautiful, magical day! See you tomorrow with more photos from our trip this week. 💞

July 6th – Magical Words

Once again, I turn to the Masters of wisdom to express what I am trying to say. 💞

“Magic is believing in yourself. If you can do that, you can make anything happen. ” – Johann Wolfgang Van Goethe
“When you look at life through eyes of gratitude, the world becomes a magical and amazing place.” – Jennifer Gayle
“Magic comes from what is inside you. It is a part of you. You can’t weave together a spell that you do not believe in.” – Jim Butcher
“The magic in this world seems to work in whispers and small kindnesses.” – Charles de Lindt
“There is a kind of magic about going far away and then coming back all changed.” – Kate Douglas Wiggins
“When you are touched by magic, nothing is ever quite the same again. What makes me really sad is all those people who have never had the chance to know that touch.” – Charles de Lint

It is time to get going and find myself some magical moments. I hope you find yours today. 🧚
