Classic French Lake House Design

French Home. Built by one of my favorite builders in Minnesota, Hendel Homes, this home is a mix of French sophistication and rustic modern.

Hi, my friends!

How are you feeling today? It was a very busy day around here… between business meetings and volunteering at my kids’ school, I surely feel that I had a very productive day! My son’s class went to an orchard today and it was wonderful. I can’t believe the day we had after the scary storm we had yesterday. It was sunny and we could pick many apples, which really surprised me. I guess we’ll be baking some apple pies over the weekend. Yum!!! 🙂

I hope that everything is good with you… may you feel healthy, healed and at peace.

Have a Blessed day, everyone. We’ll talk again tomorrow.

with Love,

Luciane from HomeBunch.com
