Things I Want

A house in the country. One we'll have to drive a distance to get to. The furniture will have dust covers and I'll have to head over early to open up the house for the family. We'll stay for the summers. We'll have dinner parties there to open and close the season and invite our friends for long weekends. Sometimes we'll head over just for a weekend as a special treat. It will be dreamy.

I am there too. What a great goal to have. A country house, beach house, or mountain house, where ever it is it speaks to slowing down the pace. So fine. Gathering friends and family to share meals and laughter works for me in a big way.

My summer house shares a backyard with yours. We have fantastic barbeques. A lighted path runs between our back doors. It's so warm that we go for long walks at night in sleevless dresses, barefoot.
