Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.

When I first read this question, a big part of me wanted to respond that I've already done it! I wanted to be in a loving marriage, check. Own a home, check. Have children and stay home with them, check, check, check. Truly, all of the things that were super important to me, I've got.

But those things beget other things too. Now I want to see my children grow up and become kind, successful, loving men. I want to see them get married to kind and loving women. I want to see them have children of their own. I think that a large part of having children is watching your dreams for yourself become your dreams for you children. All my hopes are for them now.

Selfishly, I guess I'd like to travel more. I came up with a bucket list a while ago but most of it I'd honestly be fine also not doing. In my most lazy admission, I'd like for Brooks to retire and have some good years of just spending time with him. Sheesh, guess I'm just boring!

This one touched me. I want the things you want and seeing you write that it's fulfilling and you have simple goals for yourself that are attainable and modest but fun and at heart now you yearn to see your children grow and have good goals and values...well this run on sentence has to end. Just liked reading this especially. Nothing wrong with wanting to own a home, have a loving marriage and healthy kids you get to stay home and be with. These are things I also hope to have.

Also to win a big lottery so I can be free to create a risky business venture with my hubby and work together with him the rest of my life.

Yes, you're right - winning the lottery needs to be added here :) But truly, maybe it's because I've been productive and the kids haven't totally killed me today, but I'm pretty damn happy!
