Daydream believer


I’m a bit of a daydreamer sometimes. I enjoy thinking about things that make me happy—even if at times they’re unrealistic. Isn’t that what daydreaming is all about anyway?

So forgive me if I like to stop for a second and envision myself traipsing around Europe or some other foreign country for weeks on end with money as no object.

Yesterday it was a song on the radio that prompted my latest session. It was a song I’ve always envisioned being part of my wedding. Suddenly I pictured our brothers all dressed up in tuxes, Sean surrounded by them and his closest friends. Me with my closest friends huddled in the very room in the church basement where my mom and my best friend got ready for their own weddings. I was overcome with excitement—and not even just about getting married but about seeing our closest loved ones all together to help us celebrate. It’s funny how something as simple as music can set something like that off.

Did I mention that I’m not engaged, and that I’m not getting married anytime soon? (Thus the reason for this being defined as a daydream.) It could even be considered a little crazy—me picking out music for a wedding I don’t have permission to plan yet.

But might I add: most girls do dream about their wedding day at some point, so I’d like to think I’m not that far off my rocker. And I’d liiiikeee to think this daydream isn’t in the completely unrealistic category either. Someday. Unlike endless amounts of cash at my disposal to spend on luxurious vacations for weeks at a time? We know that one’s not happening anytime soon.

What do you daydream about?
