My dream car. A Volkswagen "bus". I don't know how long I have wanted one of these things. I think it started in junior high when I had a good friend who got one to fix up. I think he only had it for a few years and then decided to get a Toyota truck! But...oh how fun it was when he did have it around. I fell in love. I have been telling Josh that we WILL have one of these within the next few years...I just gotta. My vision is to have a family painting party and go to town on the thing. Hopefully it will run...but if not I think it would make a really great camp out for the kids when they have friends come over for sleepovers. I know I would have loved one.
This specific one I took a picture of up in Oregon in one of my favorite little beach towns. It was always parked by the Herb store and I loved seeing it on our trips to the coast with family. I think I took these pictures (sorry for the image...I scanned these and didn't know how to enlarge them...hmmmm) in High School...but I remember it still being there when I moved up to Oregon in college and would take bi-weekly trips to this little town. I got to live vicariously through my sightings! Isn't it fun? I know that the van we have now is no VW Bus...but I like to think that even purchasing an "older" van makes us one step closer to my dream. And this here is my dream dog. Can you see what it is? A Siberian Husky. This picture was taken in another little beach town up in Oregon. I wonder why all my dreams appear in that state?! Perhaps because it is my dream dwelling place? Anyway...I love these dogs. Something about their demeanor...and their markings! Oh my...they are beautiful creatures. I would want mine to be named "Stormy"...and I think she would love being our dog. And this? This here is what I am dreaming of doing right now. On our way to lunch at Wildflower this afternoon, I asked Josh if he wanted to head on over to the west coast...you know, just to dip our toes in the Pacific, grab a bite to eat, catch the sunset and then be on our way back home. He wasn't in the mood. So...we decided to go to my folks house and dip our toes (well more than that actually) in their pool. Doing lots of dreaming over here. What about you?
