It is no secret that I love blogs, one can see that from my huge blog roll. In fact, I even keep a notebook of really great blogs that I find, and I think it is nearly filled with all of the details of these gems.
One of the most beautiful and special blogs I have ever come across is La Porte Rouge. This blog is not new to me, I have been reading it for years, but I do not know if you know it. So today, I thought I would share it with you, so that you can discover the beauty of its author and her home in Vermont in both words and stunningly beautiful photographs.
The La Porte Rouge is written by Nadia, and her words and photographs are magical. She lives on a 100 acre farm at the top of a mountain with her husband and her menagerie of animals, many of whom are rescued.
Each post from Nadia, feels as if you are reading from her personal journal. As a reader we get to follow along in her footsteps from the time she gets up and tends to the chickens, and horses, to her visits to her garden and orchard and then her travels to Montreal, and to neighboring towns on her road trip adventures, and finally to the setting sun.
Nadia is a gentle soul, a person who genuinely cares for nature, animals and people. She is the kind of person that everyone would be blessed to have in their life because she makes you see that there is beauty in the little things, like the flowers on a fruit tree, the beauty or raindrops on a window, and more importantly the smile of a friend or a child.
I won’t drone on any further but will let you go and discover for yourself the gentle, grace and beauty that is Nadia, Vermont and La Porte Rouge. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!
Oh, one last thing, in addition to La Porte Rouge, Nadia also started a blog book club Read with Me La Porte Rouge, and you can find it here. I have enjoyed all of the suggestions so far and enjoy the book reports from other blog writers who are reading along.
Have a wonderful day!
