Slowly but surely, I am easing my way back into reality. After being away with NO responsibilities for four whole days, it's a bit like a big slap in the face to jump back into my role as mommy and wife.  Not that I'm complaining.  I am so very thankful that I can take trips like this and I did come back refreshed.  But, dang, I could have used an "adjust back to normal life" day.  Oh well, life goes on, my toe is still attached, my baby started his first day of his last year of pre-school today, and my kids are thrilled to have their mommy home.  Doesn't get much better than that.

However, if I were in the dreaming sort of mood, which I will be here shortly since my head is about to hit the pillow, I would dream of owning a lake house like this one.....

I know, I know, that's more like a fantasy. This house would have to come with it's own staff.
Let me take it down a notch.  I think I could do some serious relaxing here....

or maybe here.....

this one looks pretty charming too.....

Such a lovely dream.  My husband and I really do dream of someday owning a quaint little house on a lake somewhere.  Who knows if that will ever happen, but it sure is fun to dream.  How about you guys, any dreams you care to share?


  1. I want one, I want one!!! I could definitely relax in a place like that. But, I'll definitely have to get a job if I'll be relaxing in that first house ;D Now, go get some sleep!

  2. Nothing like returning to reality with a little dreaming. :) I would happily accept any of these, but I think the one that comes with its own staff sounds particularly appealing!
