What's Your Dream?

I like to dream, I'm always appreciative of what I have and where I am but dreaming motivates me to get up and do something. Growing up my dream was to have my own family, to be a wife and a mom. I wanted to have art projects spread out on the kitchen table and to sit on the floor and color or play with legos with my kids. I have that, well actually now I sit on the floor and play with quacking ducks
but we're getting there.

I've found that when one dream comes true you just have to find another one. I have a couple different ideas, I either want The Paper Chick to take off just enough that I'm working but not too busy or I want to own a little shop. Growing up I wanted to own a bookstore (think Shop Around the Corner in You've Got Mail) but places like Barnes & Noble kind of changed that (again think Shop Around the Corner in You've Got Mail). So now I'm thinking a little shop that sells local artist's work or unique gifts. I can really see myself designing displays and ordering product. Just a little dream.

Speaking of which, today I have a meeting with Louisville Concierge to show my work. Actually, I'm not nervous, I think that my work will sell itself, it's just if my style is what their client is looking for or not. Appointment is at 4:30 I'll keep you posted.

  1. I love your blog. Its so witty and cute. I love the topic of dreams. I want a few adorable little kids and yes, the proverbial coffee shop. And I don't think I'll ever be able to stop teaching in some way - whether full time or as a tutor or someone who teaches computer skills to senior citizens. The future is indeed quite full.
