where would i like to be in ten years? well i guess the only way to attack this question is completely and totally honestly and with the dreams of a little girl :) in ten years i would love to be married to the man of my dreams. although i dont know who he is yet i hope somewhere in those ten years (preferably the sooner years!) that i find him and fall completely in love with him. i hope we have the wedding i have been dreaming of and a beautiful house to live in. i would like to be out of california and possibly somewhere on the east coast. the only place i have been there is new york but i think the lower states (the carolinas maybe <3) might be a nice match for me. i would like to live somewhere that have block parties on weekends, parades on the fourth of july, and a wholesomeness that allows my children to be able to play outside without any fear on my end. i would love a big victorian house with a big dog and an american flag hung on the porch. all in all i would like the ideal nicholas sparks book life (but not the books where someone dies...oh wait...that's all of them!)
i would like to have my parents living nearby so when they get older i don't have to worry about them.. i would love to have my best friends families nearby as well so we can have picnics and go on double date nights. i want to live in a community driven town and find a church i can invest myself and my family in.
i would like to have figured out my career and finished school (if only!). if i could i would love to spend a few of my ten years in other countries throughout south america and africa. i want to help the broken and love the hurting. whether or not i have a husband with me through this part of my life i would hope sometime in the near future and can invest the love and skills i have into the unreached and unloved parts of the world. i would like to find a career where i can continue to travel and see the world as well as have roots planted home and let my kids have the kind of upbringing i had that didn't include moving a lot.
