Every year at this time, I like to visit our little summer cottage. It’s an old two-story home in a quiet town by the ocean. The front door a pretty shade of pale pink, and the window boxes are overflowing with flowers. From the aqua-painted Adirondack chairs, you can hear the waves crash on the nearby beach. The decor is simple and uncluttered, and the worn bookcases are filled with board games and great reads. At night, the front deck is lit only by tea lights in mason jars filled with shells, beach rocks and urchins we’ve collected.
Haven’t I told you about this place before? Oh, um, that’s right. I haven’t. Well…err…that’s because it’s not actually a *real* place. I just visit it in my dreams. (Hey, don’t judge, lol.) But I’ve been dreaming about it for so long that it feels real. That must count for something, right? You see, over a decade ago, we had our wedding reception in a clapboard-sided, saltbox-style B&B in a small town by the Atlantic Ocean. Ever since, I’ve been imagining a summer get-away a lot like that place.
Want to know what my dream summer cottage looks like inside? Come along and I’ll show you!
Well, for starters, the views are stunning.
