Are you in love with Castles?
I love the beauty, history, and the architecture of these old castles and churches. Traveling through the past in the present and having the ability to walk through years of history that is still standing, is inspiring. First of all, I ask myself, “What history do these old stoned castles walls hold?” Have you ever dreamt of walking through the castle walls during the medieval ages and wondering what life was like?
There are so many movies that depict what life was like during the Medieval Ages. Probably the most popular time period that is often depicted with stories of wars, bloody scenes of men fighting each other, plagues, death, and cold wet castles. But, there is also that certain romance in it. Kings, queens, princesses, balls and dresses and being in love. Shouting their love from the castle windows (oh, excuse me, getting all romantic over here…).
When I think about living in that time period, I think of the romance.
Have you seen Ever After: A Cinderella Story ( the one with Drew Barrymore)? Probably most girls fairy tail dream. I dream of living in the castle, tending to the garden or livestock, walking down the hallways of stone and peering onto acres and acres of green fields full of flowers in the spring or snow in the winter. Can you imagine eating at a long wooden table discussing what the Princess is up to today, or what country we will conquer? Have you dreamt about sleeping in a bed with fur blankets next to a roaring fire of wood and drinking wine out of a golden goblet?
