Today I wanted to talk about the dreams I have for this little old blog of mine.
I had lunch with a good friend on Thursday and we talked mostly about exciting and good things that are happening in our lives. We also briefly talked about my blog and I was sharing with her what I had hoped this blog would do for me(&Branko of course) but also for anybody out there who may be reading along....
1. First and fore most I will always make sure this blog stays true to me and why I am writing it. Branko and I have BIG dreams for our "Forever Home" and when we bought it I started this blog. I wanted to remember every ounce of hard work we put into that place. We had detours like big decisions we had to make on our old home, family functions, and some time to ourselves that have been included in my weekly updates on here. But mostly I want to be able to go back and remember the goals and dreams we set out for ourselves and how we worked so hard to achieve them. All of the tears, laughter, and frustrating moments.
Gotta love the 70's home decor - the first picture before we started the trasnformation
2. I do dream that anybody out there that is following along will hopefully be able to know and build faith that when you set your mind out to do something it's very achievable. Even though we put in a LOT of hard work we saved thousands and thousands of dollars. You may think well what are you doing just storing your money away and having no fun, no vacations, no rest....no we have big plans for that saved money..trust me we do. So I hope and dream that when you come here and read this....you sit back and think we can do this, we have the capability. If you are looking for fancy DIY stuff you probably won't find it here....although Alex from Northstory.ca has some really cool things going on and she writes with so much honesty or you can check out Lynne's blog at Design the Life You Want to Live she has some amazing design ideas and great blogging tips! I have a lot to learn from these two.....but for now I will stick to my long lists, lifting drywall, and building forms for home additions.
Same view point, 2 missing walls and a gutted home waiting for new memories.
3. The social media aspect part of blogging baffles my mind still. I hope and dream that one day I get to meet these fantastic people I have been following along. In less then 2 weeks I will be attending Blogpodium and many of them will be there. I will also learn, learn, learn how I can progress with this blog and the places I want to take it.
There you have it! I hope you continue to follow along. In the future I want to add in some Gluten Free reviews on products and also expand the Classic Cars page!
Any big dreams you have for your little space?? Please do share....
