Hi I just want you to know I think the way you are living is fantastic!
I live in England which is the home of Queen Victoria & although I've lived in an Edwardian period house (1907) all my life (well 40 years of 44 )I've always loved Victorian (especially late, pre Edwardian) history...especially social history. I have tried to restore our family home (although contains many original features)to its original state.
To go the whole way as u have is impressive. well done.
I just came across this article. You may find it interesting & a resource. http://phys.org/news/2016-12-patterns-world-class.html
All the best in 2017. Dan.
How wonderful you've met a soulmate who understands you,and what I call my antiquated ways.
I was always into the Victorian and Edwardian era,and in 2014 fell in love.Sure enough I had a past life dream of him set in the Victorian era and whenever I'm around him,that whole life comes strangely back,songs and scenes, it's very beautiful.
Im quite certain you must have lived then,maybe both of you did and that's why you feel at home in it.
