A few days ago my sweetheart and I decided to run away for the day. It didn’t take us long to figure out where we wanted to go - we headed to the Oregon Coast. As we talked about our day trip we knew we wanted to see a different part of the coast than we’ve seen for quite some time – and it was such fun! We headed to a sweet, little town where we had lunch overlooking the waves. A leisurely drive around that town seemed in order since the rain cut short our walk on the beach. Along the way we found some sweet cottages that made my heart long for a beach cottage of my own.
If I had a home at the beach I wouldn’t need a sign above the door to remind me where I am!
I would love to have a home where every room has a view of the sea. . .
And weathered wood siding with white trim.
It could have a with a big porch – and lots of gingerbread!
And lots of room for good books and places to sit by the fire and chat with friends.
Or, it could be blue and white with porches and shutters and trees that seem to hide it away from passersby.
Nearby there would be little cottages for folks from far away who come to visit. Cottages with names - like these. There’s ‘Comfy’. . .
And ‘Cozy’. . .
It’s just a dream – but dreams do come true, you know.
