Friday 5 Dreams

So the very awesome Karla N is having a contest for Wade, Fade, and Gone . Creatively since the stories are about dream, writing about your dreams is part of the contest. So, here are 5 of my dreams.

(1). Get Married: Yes, I've been waiting for this dream to materialize since I was a little girl. Even though the divorce rate is 50%, I still want to take one trip down the aisle. And even though I'm not seeing anyone at the moment, I know that Mr. Right could appear at any moment!

(2). Have a Baby: My dream to have a child is probably stronger than my desire to get married. I've just always been maternal, wanted children, etc. If you had talked to "10 yrs ago Krista", she would have already believe this dream would've come true. But alas, it hasn't. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and saying prayers that both #1 and #2 happen SOON!!!

(3). Publish a book, or two, or 5: I think this is probably the dream of every writer. To be published. I've wanted to be a published author since I was a little girl. I got close this summer, and I'm hoping to finally achieve this dream soon!

(4). See Ireland & Scotland: Although my family has been here in America since the 1700's in some cases, I have an affinity deep in my bones for the "homeland", so to speak, of Ireland and Scotland. This is where family on both sides of my family came from along with England(but I've been there before). I really, really want to see these places. Hmm, maybe when I get a book deal!

(5). Be able to teach 1/2 time: I guess this dream goes along wtih the publishing dream b/c I'd love to just have to work part time. Well, it could also go along with #1 too, lol. I'd love to have more time to devote to writing and volunteering.

So there you have it. My 5 Dreams. What are yours? Be sure to stop by Karla's contest!

I have similar dreams! I think I'd substitute New Zealand for the traveling though. Great list! I hope they all come true!

GREAT list! 10yr ago me would've thought the same about myself to in regards to the husband and kids, but'll happen when it happens. At least, thats what I tell my parents when they harp on my about grandbabies ;)

And yes, yes, and yes to 3,4, & 5(i don't teach, but i'd love to only work part-time or no time) :)

What beautiful dreams! Don't wait for the book deal for Ireland and Scotland. Start up a little travel account and stash away a dollar at a time!

I hope all your dreams come true! :)

Currently, my dreams are to get into a medical school, get published, and perhaps find THE boyfriend.
