My Dream House; My Farmhouse

posted by Andrea | 09/30/2010 | 18 comments

Ever since I was a little girl I have dreamed of living in an old farmhouse. Honestly, I have no idea where my unwavering obsession with farmhouses comes from; or why my {extremely} practical nature allows me to continually fantasize about my dream house… my “someday house”… MY farmhouse.
