w i s h l i s t

I want to have fresh flowers in my home at all times. I want to be a patient parent and a selfless spouse. I want to learn how to serve without thinking about the reward. I want to write often, read when I'm bored, and paint when I'm sad. I want to inspire the people I work with to live a happier life. I want to live in the city and end up in the country. I want to learn how to survive on nothing. I want to be made fun of for smiling - all the time. I want to leave my nail polish on till it falls off. I want year-round tan lines. I want to be in love with my best friend. I want to be fearless. I want to swim off the coasts of Italy. I want to learn to sail and get lost at sea. I want my home to be full of laughter and always have big breakfasts on Saturday mornings. I want to learn how to speak a different language. I want to take a hot air balloon ride in the middle of spring. I want to make a big discovery. I want to see my best friends grow old and watch our children fall in love. I want to grow my own tomatoes. I want an eternal family. I want a tall tree in my yard with a big wooden swing. I want to only wear dresses for a month straight. I want to write a children's book with my kids. I want to star gaze every night. I want to make sure my family matches every single Easter Sunday. I want to catch fireflies in mason jars and make fresh-squeezed lemonade in the summertime. I want to master the art of listening to my mind and my heart. I want to get butterflies every time I think about  him. I want to make my own gift wrap and birthday cards. I want an old-fashioned mail box. I want to expect nothing and be excited at everything. I want to thank God every morning and every night for the wonderful life I live.
