We spent time today searching for a home; another home with more space for our growing family.  We’ve seen many different possibilities, and compared them with our current home which has many features we love.  When I think of home, it is more images and feelings that I experience, than a certain type of house.  Tropical foliage, a wide porch, a cool, open interior, fans and comfy furniture, a spacious, well-designed kitchen and soothing bedroom spaces with spa-like bathrooms are what I dream of.  A private backyard with a pool and hammock, a porch swing and perhaps a small waterfall which can be seen through double French doors from the living room.  I imagine a quiet street, walking or bicycling to shops and restaurants, and entertaining family and friends.  Some of these things we already have, but not enough bedrooms here.  I also imagine wonderful meals with friends and drinks around the pool, all of which are possible now but we rarely actually accomplish them!  I don’t really imagine who would cook the wonderful meals.  Obviously someone who has more time than me.  Still, dreams are what keep the world interesting!





Friends

This week I’ve been inspired by friends.  The joy of companionship with good friends is a daily blessing for me.  Like many people, I’m lucky to work with some of my best friends.  I appreciate shared interests, thoughtful gestures, laughter and professional discussions.  Coming home to my number one best friend, my husband, is what I love best.  And while friendship is very important to me, solitude is equally relished.  I love to be alone sometimes, and am refreshed by silence and time to myself.  Balance is not always easy to achieve.
