where i belong

today i'm thinking about my home.
not so much my current residence {still a depressing issue for me...hopefully mom will help me get it together in a week}, but the home i will someday have.

whether it will be my own personal space or the dwelling of a small and happy family, i'm still unsure.
however, i have tons of thoughts on the subject.

here are some of the things floating around in my head:
a light and breezy cottage on the beach, where we can watch the sun come up/go down from the porch every day.
a small tree house-esque fort, buried in the midst of a huge forest. full of adventure. and lots of windows for the sun to peak in through the trees.
a tiny, humble but sweet apartment, smack dab in the middle of a thriving metropolis {say san francisco or chicago, maybe?}
a vintage trailer on a big piece of land, perfect for watching the stars at night.

regardless of style or location, one word can be used to describe the feel of the home i hope to create:
{okay two words, because some version of "small" also fits each description}

i cannot help thinking of candles and big cozy throws and antique globes and huge coffee mugs and a massive sofa that completely swallows its inhabitants. and thousands of twinkle lights. i think that a space covered in twinkle lights instantly becomes something more- a home. and rocking chairs. two. either for boy and girl, madly in love. or the lovebirds together, with kids in their laps. or visits from mom or dad or sister or niece. or for catching up with lifelong friends.

yes...i like those thoughts very much.
