Dream Home, part 1: because I could go on for days.

I don't think I've ever talked about this before, but I have a very clear picture of my dream home. Two pictures in fact for my two very different homes. The first one is a small beach bungalow. Not a home just a few blocks from the beach, I'm talking a house built in the sand, baby! It's fresh and airy and just fits my little family. I would be caught most days chasing my kids around on the beach in a swimsuit (without muffin top of course). The inside would be simple and crisp and mostly white-washed wood and I promise I'd never complain about sweeping the tracked-in sand 8 times each day. Dinners woud most likely consist of fresh fish thrown on the grill with roasted veggies and a tart and salty margarita to sip.

Think something like...






My other dream house couldn't be more different. It would again be small but nearly completely wooded; It would be a log cabin. It would have big rustic logs as beams, ceilings would not exist in this home. The fireplace would be crackling as I sip my coffee on my distressed leather furniture. The room wouldn't be a perfect picture without a brown and white cowhide beneath my feet. Ah, there, now I am in love.

Think something like...





Beautiful, no? I know they are as different as can be, but I like to think of it as being prepared. Prepared for the day I have more money than GOD! Who wouldn't want a warm weather house and also a cozy inviting log cabin?

Guess what? We found one of these two houses.

The beach picture is reminding me of my honeymoon and now I want to go back.

Now with the log cabin the only thing you are missing are the pictures of the snow you will find in the two links below!

WOW! BOTH of those homes are beautiful! You and I have got the same taste in homes! :)

On the Island, we have quite a few houses like the second one you chose. The wood beams are popular here. Really rustic and pretty! Love that kitchen!

Can't wait to hear more! :)

I lived in a log house when I was younger. It was the most wonderful house ever.
