WANNA GO ON A TRIP?

to my dream house out by the sea......
you can come by yourself, bring your bf, your hubby, your kids or just the girls......
all we will do is relax, eat, swim, laugh and throw our cares away......
there is plenty of room for everyone, so come on......

we will ride our bicycles down to the ocean's shore and play in the sand......

we will hurry back before the sun sets......
to relax on the porch and sip lemonade together......
we will sleep in every morning!
Won't it be fun?

A girl can dream, Right???
Maybe someday I will live in my beach house by the sea.
I would love to wake up every morning to the smell of fresh saltwater.
I wouldn't care if the beach mist made my hair frizz.
It would be worth it to watch the waves lap the shore!
To watch the sunset over the ocean's edge.
I may not live on the sea but I do live pretty close to it.
In the most amazing guesthouse built by my Dad.
The view out my bedroom window is amazing,
with sunny skies most of the year.
This life is pretty close to a dream when I think about it.
God has blessed me with shelter, food, a family most would pray to have.
The privilege of watching my nephew and niece grow up.
A good job when times our tough , a church family and friends with whom I can confide.
My friends are always welcome to come stay with me to get away and relax.
We can still go down to the seashore and eat snow cones on a hot day.
Or maybe get some gelato in Avila Beach or ice cream at the barn.
All my friends are always welcome!!
SO COME ON OVER!

Looks like a perfect dream house but your home and life sounds pretty amazing too! I would love to live near the beach. I took it for granted when growing up in Sydney. Now that I live in Houston I miss it all of the time.

By the way the party hats Martha Stewart shows how to make them on her website so I just picked out paper I liked and did them up. I love your blog, seriously!!!!!!!!!

One of these days I will learn how to comment back on my blog to others. I wish we all could get together all the time too. You need to post pictures of our place your dad built. I can't wait to see it. I am not just saying this but I LOVE looking at your blog. You are like my long lost twin sister, I love all the things that you do!!! The My favorite things blog that has a link of your blog to is sooo cool. Anyhow I was not really into the blog things at first but it really is a great way to keep in touch and see friends lives. Keep it up!
