Dreaming of the beach

Since I was a little girl, I've wanted to live on the beach (or in walking distance to the beach).  I was lucky  to grow up on the coast of Maine where I was always only a few miles away from the ocean.  I have many great memories of my mom taking us kids to the beach when she got out of work.  We'd visit as the sun was going down and it was the most peaceful, beautiful time of the day.  When I'm at the beach, I just feel "right." Can you relate?

It's a little far-fetched for me to be wishing for a beach house since we just bought our first house last year.     And we're only 20 minutes from the beach now.  I can't complain.  Really I can't.  But I can dream, right? Someday I will own a beach shack (and really that's all I want).  A shack.  With a bed. And a kitchen. And a porch. A toilet would be nice too. :) And the smell of the salt water.  And the sand beneath my toes.

I'm aware this is not a shack.  But I would take it.

After all that drooling day dreaming, I'm off to the beach. :)

PS:  Hope to be back tomorrow with pictures of my master bedroom!  It's almost done. :)

    1. Haha I don't know if you could quite call it pain, but definitely a longing. :))

  2. Can you make sure your "shack" has a room, or at least a bed for me?
