Straights A’s

When I was 28 living in Atlanta I wrote down my goals. I read someplace that a study found that people who wrote down their goals were x percent more likely to achieve them than people who just thought and hoped. And 10+ years later I have got most of them. I have a smart, funny, inspiring husband. A smart, funny, inspiring job. Good sweet healthy kids and other than my tennis game being a level up I think my life is mostly what I had hoped. I try and stay engaged in visual art and interiors and take our home and art collecting seriously because I think that luxury is really small things like being filled with joy when you see certain works in your home or reading a great book or an excellent cup of coffee. 
I feel a little contrary to the Marie Kondo minimalism but I do want small moments and things in our house to be beautiful. Not perfect but beautiful. There’s a significant difference.
All that is to say that I am approaching my 40th birthday this fall and I write down my new 10 year goals. I realized my only big goal (aside from trying to maintain my relationship, house and be a good mom) is to save enough money to build a small cabin in SW Michigan and be able to go there with the kids for 3-4 weeks in the summer. I think this is very achievable. And even though I already think I have a plan worked out, I think the basic aesthetic could work out a few different ways. A-frane is Julio’s favorite and certainly a top pick of mine too so I’m starting there. 
This is dream obviously. A lake house with lots of light. Via hither and thither 

It’s so hot here today I am dreaming about snow filled cozy cabin weekends (photo from Reddit) 


And this white and wood filled interiors would be perfect. Sandy feet would be right at home. Via Lonny
