My Other Self

Karen at This Old House issued a challenge the other day and it sounded like a fun way to pass the time, so I'm joining in. I found all of the photos for this post on Pinterest and here's my entry, for what it's worth.

:  :  :  :  :


My other self would own a home along the coast.




And a summer house in Maine.

And her dog would have his friends over to visit.

My other self would keep an apartment in the city.

Because that's always fun.




She'd be able to eat bagels smeared with Nutella . . .





. . . and still look good in a bathing suit.





My other self would drive a car that made her heart race.

And she'd also have another one for practical purposes.




My other self would never burn toast.




And all her meals would be delicious.





And life would be good.




If you want to play along, go ahead ~ link up with Karen at This Old House. Tell her I sent ya.

Have a beautiful weekend, all ~

Hi Kate, just coming back from your fire post....gosh you got me scared there. Gladd things went down smoothly. Uhhh.

And this one is absolutly fab. Love to participate but I'm still walking with my head in a jetlag in seattle area. So I'll have to skip this one. To sad.
