By the Sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea...

When we redecorated the kitchen last year, I decided I wanted a beach house feel. I've always wanted to live on the beach, but my husband is more interested in having house on a lake or a river. Someday, by the way. Right now we live in a nice suburb with plenty of friends for our sons, good schools and an easy commute for my husband.*yawn*

Since I doubted I would ever wash dishes while looking out at the ocean, I decided to trick myself by making our kitchen feel like a charming New England cottage on the shore. Lots of white, some framed photos of Long Island beaches and these very cool fish dishes that once belonged to my grandmother.

Something unexpected has occurred, though. While I was away at that wedding in New York, my husband called to tell me that he wants to buy a weekend get-away house. Not completely out of the blue, he's talked about it before, but suddenly it's something he wants to do immediately. Seems he had been doing some research while I was gone and decided the time is NOW.

And, get this- he thinks a beach house would be a splendid idea! After more research and a couple of trips down to the Galveston shore we've decided to buy a place we can rent out AND we've taken on partners. Close friends of ours have also been looking for a weekend escape and since we saw the kind of place our money could buy, it seemed a good idea to pool our resources.

Stay tuned for further beach house updates! (OMG, I'm gonna have a beach house!)I'll have to redecorate the kitchen. Perhaps a mountain cabin motif?
