My husband and I have spent a lot of time in Red Wing over the last couple of months. I love the drive there. The open fields. Tony’s play list. Our conversations. My favorite thing however is this:
Seeing our someday future dream home. We don’t really plan on moving but we do talk about our dreams – IF we did move, where would we go? The older we get, open and quiet spaces appeal to us more. Inviting our favorite people over for bonfires, dinner, games, and crafting. Sort of like we already do but in a setting that feels like a retreat. An escape.
I guess I’ve always wanted our home to at least feel that way. So while we may never actually own the very cool barn home above, our someday future dream home is very much worthy of continued pursuit. And when our oldest stopped by for a visit early this week, he affirmed this very thing for me after walking through the door.
“Ahhhh, it smells like home,” were the first words out of his mouth – pleasing this momma’s heart to no end.
