Things I Dream Of Thursday

Everyone has these super cute day themed blog posts... so I wanna do it.

I was trying to think of how to phrase it because these aren't really wants, definitely not needs, but things that I do think about in a sort of wish like state.

So Things I Dream Of Thursdays are starting.

These are items, ideas, people that I love to let my mind wander about.

Today I'm going to start off with something that my cousin Nikki (cousin-in-law?) started me on. Nikki is the author behind Armchair Traveling and has been picking a different country to learn about every month. She learns about the people, the history, the cooking and all sorts of other things. At the end of the month she cooks us a typical meal from that place (last month was Congolese food and this month is Costa Rican—YUM). I say all of this because on her blog she featured a tree house community she found in Costa Rica.

So, my first dream is minimalist living in a tree house... with my friends and loved ones.

Gorgeous Decks

What a dream.

Where would you live if you could live anywhere? What type of community would it be? What type of house/mansion/shack would it be (game of MASH anyone??)?

"Don't you sometimes feel that this is the kind of life we were meant to live on this earth? Everything we need, everything, right here, right at our fingertips. You know, if only people could have all this and be satisfied, I don't think there'd be any real problems in the world."

  1. I'm so glad you liked my treehouse post! Yeah, living in a treehouse community sounds AMAZING! I think the only downside is bugs getting in, but I have a feeling I'd get over that pretty fast. Treehouse for me! I'd like mine to have a curvy slide that wound its way around the trunk:)
