"the top 10 most romantic homes in the world in 2012"

by Posted On

Oh my goodness!!  Imagine my surprise when our agent sent me this!

This is an annual list released once a year!  These houses are selected each February and are

publicized all year!

No one can apply for, nor purchase this advertising!

I feel extremely honored;  and I am with some very spectacular company!!

I have had calls from friends from all over who saw it in their newspapers, and even on AOL!

 This is sure  fun for me!!!  And I consider it a big compliment!!

    This is a perfect post for Valentine’s Day, because in my eyes your home is the most romantic place on earth!
    Not only is it beautiful, but I could feel the love that went into its design the minute I walked into your courtyard.
    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Adam, and congratulations on this well deserved recognition of your amazing talent.

    Why am I not in the LEAST bit surprised? The stuff the dreams are made of. It was so wonderful to talk to you for just a bit while you were in Florida. So grateful for all of your kindness.

    All my best,

    Your home is so right. Beauty, spirit, light, comfort, joy, intellect.

    I’m sure it’s also pieces of those you love, things/places that have inspired you. Tears fallen, laughter across the garden.

    All that comes across in those few pics on my tiny laptop screen.

    Congratulations for the notice you’ve been given for your talents. XO Tara
