Typically my wishes on here have been cute stuff I would love to own or things I need to get done. It's a place where I can share my desires and goals, gain insight from yall, and then hear other's lists as well. This is probably one of my favorite features and I'm SOOOOO glad Courtney came up with it!
Today though, as I was driving into work I decided that today's post needs a spin on it.... in spending time with my youth group I've realized that I spend too much of my time being too realistic and simple. One thing that I love about this group of high schoolers is that they still dream...sometimes outlandish dreams and I love that! Then I start to think, why have I stopped dreaming like that? Why is it that I deem crazy far out dreams as impossible and therefore forgetable??? I hate the idea that as we get older we stop allowing ourselves the right to dream of crazy and all out amazing things. So in honor of being a kid at heart who still wishes on the first star and secretly hopes that the moon is made of cheese....here are my Willy Wonka type of dreams....because nothing is impossible and nothing is too silly.
My Willy Wonka type dreams:
1. own a cute shop with my mom.
our store would have antiques (her love), cute dresses (like these betsy johnson dresses, but cheaper--affordable), cute little accessories (for your hair, your self, your home, and fun little gifts), other clothing (totally affordable), photos (taken by local artists, and hell since it's my dream world, some by me too!), and food (something simple but wonderful, cupcakes maybe? cookies maybe?)!!
I'd also get to have as many tattoos as I wanted, since it's my own shop and I make the rules!
It would also be a cute little shop located in the heart of a bustling sweet little city.....DC perhaps?

or maybe London?
or somewhere near the beach???
2. own a place by the beach.
money is no object in my dream world (apparently).
i feel like i never get to the beach, even though i only live 15 minutes away...but if i had a beach house, i'd be there all the time and i'd have fun parties for my friends...
3.travel the world.
austria? australia? italy? west coast of the US? greece? mexico for my bday (cinco de mayo, a/k/a may 5th) Yes please!
4. be a roller derby girl
i want to do this sooooo badly, time is what stands against me though. well that and not having bought skates yet, so who knows if im actually any good...but in my perfect little world, i rock it! :)
5. take and endless amount of history classes
i looove history and i've had some awesome history professors at UNF. if i could take more and not have to worry about prices i would be all over that!
6. be a writer
i want to write books. a little bit carrie bradshaw, a little bit donald miller (weird combo i know). i just want to write it all!
What are your crazy outlandish dreams?????
