Cottage Love

I may need to start calculating 
how much time I actually spend simply,  
thinking. imagining. daydreaming.  

I know it can definitely be 
distracting am sure I could optimize 
that time into some super productive-ness, 
but I also know some of my best ideas 
and inspiration come during this time.  

Inspiration for 
my family 
my goals
my home 
my business...
my dreams.

Lately my daydreams of cottages 
have become more and more frequent.  
I have always imagined living in 
a cozy little cottage in the 
middle of a big meadow or
on a quaint street
nestled in a massive amount of 
trees surrounded by beautiful 
mountains and countryside.
(oh and don't forget the stream!) 

Just a nice stroll from a sweet 
little town, where I purchase my 
groceries from a family owned store, 
and buy my produce from the local 
farmer's market each weekend.  

It used to be just a nice little thought 
my mind traveled to, 
but it has now become a serious thought.
To simplify, 
to enjoy... 
to escape.

My life is settling down a bit 
after an interesting couple of years.  

The most 
years of my life.  

I find much gratitude in all I 
have learned and experienced...
And the blessings we have received.  

I have learned that life is priceless,
and being happy, doing what you love, 
with those you love is most important. 

That my be why the simple cottage life 
is beckoning me.

Though it may not be absolutely possible 
at this time to escape to cottage life, 
there are things that I can do to 
simplify and enjoy where I am at.  

That just may be all my daydreams 

{& my heart} 
are trying to tell me.:)
