Beach, sun, sandy feet, and wet towels flung over the balcony. Cafe brekkies, afternoon bevvies and late night dinners (when we could be bothered) all added to the ultimate holiday vibe.
I know we live on the beaches and yes there are plenty of cafes to eat breakfast at and yes we even have a pool, so we don't really need to be on holidays to enjoy all of the above... but it is a dream of mine to have a holiday home up the coast.
An old beach house that we can do up, with a balcony for towels, a place where friends and family can go and stay, a home where sandy feet are not only allowed but a given.
In my mind when I visualise the future, I see Carl and myself with our three kids, and their partners and their kids all enjoying Christmas at the beach house.
It is always the same image I see and that makes me hopeful that the fact that I can picture it so clearly in my head could just mean that my vision is on the cards for us one day.
I was foofing around on the interwebs the other night when I stumbled across the picture of the home above and it led me to a website which was home to images of not just a beautiful beach house... my dream beach house.
This home has been beautifully decorated by Interior Designer Karen Akers, in a style I absolutely adore. Neutral colours and wood tones, textural elements and... right on the beach.
This IS my dream holiday home.
One day, I will make that dream a reality.
I just will.
Do you have a picture in your head of what the distant future looks like? Tell me about it?
Do you dream about a beach house too?
