A Series

One day

A series of short narratives illustrating dreams, aspirations, and goals.

This is my small collection of ideas for the future: some are collaborations that are shared with loved ones while others are plans I've quietly dreamt up myself and kept secret until now. It has been said that ideas are fluid: if you don't act on them, they'll find someone else to carry them through. But what if we kept a constant library of shared intentions and objectives? Our ideas could bounce off of one another, so as to keep these concepts infinitely desirable and cared for. I invite you to consider these narratives as inspiration for your own "one days."

one day we'll...

own
a bed & Breakfast

 
 

One day we'll own a bed & breakfast on the beach. It'll be humble and sweet--6 guest rooms, each with its own bathroom and fireplace. We'll live there, too, in an eastern or western wing. We'll find living there to be challenging at first (especially with the kids), but will grow to love it: our rotating family giving us purpose each morning.

People will come from all over the globe and from all walks of life. Financially-conservative newlyweds will choose our bed & breakfast over Cabo or Hawaii. Families will reunion there, each immediate group reserving their own room. Friends and lovers will find it on holidays and long weekends, reserving a room for just one night--a night they'll always remember. Retirees in search of some adventure will find their way to us, too; some will become regulars, returning each year and always during the same season.

The house will be old, but grand in that sense: the ceiling moldings and creaks in floors will whisper stories to our guests. On weekends, you'll spend your time fixing what needs to be fixed: cracks in walls, chips in paint, leaks in pipes. It keeps you busy but you adore it. I'll decorate, of course. We'll visit all the flea markets in search of credenzas and sideboards and dining tables that fit the house best. When the perfect piece for this room or that room is found, I'll spend hours rearranging things until the space feels fresh, renewed, and right. You'll often find nail holes that need patching, a sign that I've been there--moved something to it's new home just 6" to the left on the same wall; you'll tire of these discoveries, but will quietly fetch your tools to finish the job.

and on and on...
