For The Weekend // 08

Sparrow in Space

My dearest Sparrow in Space readers, it’s weekend! Hooray!

We found this building while we were walking around at last month’s Dutch Design Week. I don’t know what it looks like from the inside, but from the outside it looks like one of my dream houses (yes I have several dream houses. I like to dream big). I love the windows, the brickwork and the location which you can’t see on the photo but trust me on that. I bet it has a big garden for my pet goat to roam freely.

In my dream garden I have a goat, some chickens, a small pig, an alpaca and a donkey. And three children, running around. Perhaps one is riding around on the donkey. Not sure  if my future donkey likes that kind of shenanigans.

I believe dreams are plans waiting to happen. These dreams of my garden probably need some tweaking, but it is going to happen. I’m strong of will and if I want something, I will make it happen. As should you. If you want to quit your job and work as a freelancer, work towards that. If you want to have children, well start… you know what. If you want to have the best wardrobe in the world, stop buying cheap clothes and start buying quality stuff. If you want something, anything, go out and get it. Don’t wait for the world to hand it to you. This weekend I’m going out and I’m getting what I want. For this weekend, it’s coconut milk yogurt, because I also like to dream small.
