The strangest thing happened the other night. It was a fitful night’s sleep…hot dog breath on the backs of my legs, PH snorting, random sleep talking from Rach (you know, the usual)…and I woke with a complete start and I (at the moment) believed that the answer to all of life’s problems came in the form on a beach cottage in California.
This is never a thought that has entered my mind before. I had a very convincing dream that it would be worth purchasing a fixer-upper-cottage in a quaint beach town where it’s warm when it’s cay-rap here (like right now)… the dream was so vivid that I actually started to craft a plan in my head as I was lying there in complete wakefulness (dog breath/snorting/talking still going on) about how the Blairs could make this happen.
Never mind that it’s financially not possible…
..or that the we’d have to the fly four people down there…
…or that frankly, we’d just assume fly our stark white tuckuses to Maui, Hawaii, our favorite spot on the planet.
…or that there really is no such thing as a cheap fixer-upper in a really quaint California beach town.
Following me here?
I think it might be the white-everything-cottage-design thing I’ve got stuck in my craw…that and the thought of frolicking down a little beach main street in flipflops in February…when I getting heavy duty use out of my REI jacket and ski hat.
So, let’s just say for the sake of the argument and a ridiculous lucid dream that stayed with me all freakin’ day that we explore what such a beach cottage would look like..shall we?
Of course, it would involve an indoor swing of some sort…don’t you think all beach cottages should have a swing (am I right, Holly?!)

The whites go without saying…
I think I could even do some fun reds in a beachy scene…
Ahhh, the open-door bedroom…
Of course, I would take a cue from my pal Kim and her incredibly beautiful, incredibly WHITE kitchen.
I’d go with all vintage mixed with whites…fresh and clean!

So it seems that I’m beach-dreamin’ when it SHOULD be nice weather here…sigh…really looking forward to summer.
How ’bout you?
Fun snaps from my Seattle jaunt on the way…had a very nice time with my mom and the kidlets.
Happy week, lovelies!
