making dreams reality…





Mr. Fleurishing and I have many dreams, and one of them is coming true today…we are closing on our house! We chose it together, and very soon it will be our HOME. We are so excited for our future, and have so much we hope to do. One thing we daydream about is someday riding the Orient Express! On one of our first dates, it came up in conversation and we couldn't believe we both had the same desire-it is such a specific one. Being the planner that I am, I can't help but peruse the website and imagine what we'll choose, when we can afford it…(you might notice that a ride on this historic train is not cheap). Exploring Europe in such an old-fashioned way would be an amazing experience. For now…our dreams are much more down to earth, and having those come true is a wonderful feeling…happiness!!



  1. That is one of my dreams too!!! Kindred spirits. Ever since I was a little girl. Hopefully someday we will all get our train ride.
    Congrats on your house closing!! So many initials and signatures but so worth it. Make sure you do something fun to celebrate =)

  2. I have always wanted to go on the Orient Express ever since Hercule Poirot solved that ” famous murder mystery”. I am a big Agatha Christie fan. John would also love to take a trip on the train. Yes soul mates think alike. I can’t imagine a more perfect trip with my best friend. That is one of our retirement trip dreams.

    Congratulations on your new house. I absolutely love the picture. Best wishes to you and P always.

  3. Riding on the orient express has long been a dream of mine too, and it looks to be such a ridiculously chic way to see the world (or a part of it), but SO expensive. For now it stays in my dreams :)
    Congrats on your house! So exciting! I hope someday soon we can find somewhere to settle down. I hope amidst all the packing you get to celebrate this new chapter together!

  4. Julie, that is so great…you guys will get there I’m sure! I forgot about the murder mystery, very cool. Thanks for the house wishes, it’s now official! We couldn’t be happier. xo

    Em…yes, kindred spirits indeed! We had a lovely dinner, thanks!! :)

    Ashley, I’m sure you will hop on the train someday too…it is a dream for all of us it seems….thank you for the house wishes!

  5. Suz, this is so exciting! Love hearing about your dreams. Hopefully someday soon you’ll be blogging about your train ride :) Thanks for sharing, I cannot wait to visit you both in your charming new home.

  6. Congratulations on your first home, so exciting! I’m sure you can’t wait to decorate :)

    And the dream, one that I share too. See you enroute…
