When I was younger, I used to wish and wish and wish for hair as long as my Barbie's hair. Oh, if I had hair as long as Barbie's I could have long billowing curls or a really long pony tail or a number of other styles that I just KNEW I would look so gorgeous wearing. Oh how I wish.
Then my older brother said to me one day, "If your hair was as long as your Barbie doll's hair, your hair would be like three inches long."

As of late, I've been evaluating where I am in life right now and thinking of where I want to be. I love making lists and plan on writing down my five year plan in the coming weeks. I know the saying, anything worth having is worth waiting for and I plan on eventually acquiring these things over the next five years, but if I had three wishes . . .
I wish I could have a piano.
I used to play the piano when I was younger, right up until I left home for my Junior year of college. Playing the piano was such a relaxing, therapeutic escape for me. I would close my eyes and run my fingers across the keys. I was no Beethoven, but I was pretty good. So the question might be, why not just get a piano? Not so easy. I have no where in my townhouse to put it. So, that leads me to my second wish.
I wish we had a brand new single family home.
First of all, it would be a great place to put my piano. Then they would be all the wonderful space that would come with it. I would have a real kitchen to cook in and a new space to decorate. It would be cool to have nifty stuff like double vanity sinks and a jacuzzi tub. It would give us great space to raise our future family (and our current menagerie - two dogs, cat and snake). So lastly . . .
I wish my husband and I could sail off into the sunset.
I was telling a friend of mine today that for my 35th birthday, I would love to organize a group cruise with my friends and their husbands/significant others. My husband does not fly; absolutely refuses to get on an airplane, but he's completely open to the idea of a cruise. But I would love it if we could get away right now for at least a 7-day cruise.
So those are my three wishes. What would your three wishes be?
