a door to the future

i have a confession for you.  i have fallen in love with a new dream and passion (besides the hubs, photography, and baking).  well, i suppose this is not so much a new dream as much as it is a re-manifestation of an old dream.

I could live in a castle....

I could live in a castle….

i want to buy a house….like right now.  for some reason this overwhelming sense of urgency has hit me this past week.  i think it is because i found a house that we can actually afford (HELLO!), like, and is in a suitable area.  i just keep praying, “please, Lord, save it for me when i return!”  i’m not kidding.. i probably pray that a couple times a day 🙂

here’s the second fold of that confession… it is SO HARD to live in another country and house shop!  all this house lust is manifesting into an obsession with german housing too and time-consuming blog stalking of folks who are self renovating their less than perfect homes.  as a result, i am now full of creative inspiration and capturing shots of all the fun doors of the local homes.

so what am i doing to cope?  finding the beauty (which isn’t hard) in the lil (actually they are huge- most 3 stories) dutch homes around me.  now, i not only have an obsession with checking to make sure my future home (hopefully) hasn’t sold and DIY blogs, but also with doors.  it’s official, i must have a really cool door to honor our time here.   my poor husband.
