one day.

i have so many dreams, let me tell you. and these aren't just crazy dreams that will never come true, but they are realistic ones that i can almost grasp out in front of me. i think about these dreams all of the time, mainly because i haven't been doing much these days. but there are moments where i feel so complete...alone in my apartment, all is quiet except the air blowing through the vents; the blinds are open and natural sunlight fills every corner; i dream. today, and most of this week, and month really, i've been day dreaming about my future home. i research all over online trying to find pictures that represent my style and what i eventually want. in the past 6 months i've really come to appreciate the idea of simplicity. i bagged my crazy bedding and instead bought a classic white duvet cover. no design, nothing fancy. just white. and i can't tell you how much i love it. that's where it all began, this white business. i love cleanliness--and i have visions of bedrooms filled with white and a few accent colors. sheer curtains. dark restored wood floors. mmmmm, i just can't stop thinking about it. no clutter, no junk, clean lines, throw in some color, make it comfortable and inviting. i crave all of this. i've kind of created a digital idea board in my photos. i have a file titled "future home." i know this probably doesn't matter to any of you, but it matters to me, and this is my blog, and i write mostly for me. so here they are. maybe you'll enjoy them.
see?  if this was my house--all of these amazing pictures, wouldn't you want to come hang out?
 i know i would.

I love it!!! I recently did the same thing...and got made fun of it because our original one was only a few months old. I just finished quilting some scraps together to just throw on the end of the bed...my mom just re-do their kitchen in white marble and it looks so nice all in white with a splash of red...
Can I have the house next door to yours??

k jenna I love it! I think its totally great to have some ideas for your house because owning a home comes so much faster than you would ever think. and i had NO idea what i was doing. I still don't.

love that first pic of the quilt and the picture of the #6 entryway tile.. that is amazing. and, just so you know, you are not alone. when i can't go to sleep at night, one of my tried and true tactics is to imagine the layout of my dream house. it's quite fun.

Oh jenna--I LOVE IT! All of it! You need to tell me where you find these great pictures online--I always need ideas for my house--and have trouble finding ideas online! And YES I would definitely come hang out with you--but you know what? I would hang out with you no matter where you lived or how it looked!

JENNA-i am not lying, I have an obsession with decorating my house. Some nights I can't even sleep cause I am thinking of things I want to do to it, the frustrating part is actually finding the stuff I want to buy!!! :) SOOOOO, if you have any great stores or websites-let me know!
