I often find my mind wandering through life and the things that surround me. I would like to think that it is a set of romantic colored glasses thru which I see. Yet my mind gets away from me. I set unattainable goals, plan my future, name my future children, buy amazing cars, and plan my future wardrobe. The problem with all this wishful thinking is that I am not present now! The benefit of this thinking I find myself focusing on great life plans, like buying the perfect fixer-upper home. And as of late that is all I can seem to think about. Funny thing is I know what I want and where to find it but I'm here (in Hawaii) and I can't afford a home. I want a little house in some pastel shade of pink or yellow with a picket fence. Something a little like this...
I've fallen in love... With a little 4 bedroom house! I scour the real estate ads daily for homes with "good bones" that are cheap. I found this un-polished gem in my home town.
|I mocked up what that house would look like if I owned it! Even with my car in the driveway.|
Oh and did mention there is a two car garage too?
I can just imagine the poppies that I remember my in grandma's garden would grace the this long flower bed along the driveway.
I would decorate the house with things I love.
Paint the walls colors I like not what the landlord thinks will blend in all the ugly holes in the walls the best.
