Before I begin, I'd like to preface that I'm very happy with my life as is, but it's always fun to do a little (or a lot of) daydreaming! I hope you enjoy reading my answers!
I would absolutely enjoy living in a tropical location near the ocean. Soft sand, crystal clear blue water, fresh tropical fruits, warm weather, and relaxation are some of my favorite things. Why not surround myself with them every day?
If I could have any home...
I'd love to customize my own house. My home would have a wooden wrap around porch, an in-ground swimming pool, an eat-in kitchen with tons of counter and cabinet space, a play room for my daughter, lots of closet space, a finished basement with plenty of room for my husband to build his "man cave," and a special room with built-in storage for all of my teaching/arts and craft supplies.
If I could have any garden (yard)...
I already mentioned the pool, so we can cross that off the list. I'd love for my yard to be spacious, with large, grassy areas where my daughter can run and play. Since I'll be living in the tropics, I'd like a view of the ocean. I'm no gardener, but it'd be really nice to have a vegetable garden and/or fruit trees from which I can pick fresh produce.
If I could be on holiday (vacation) now...
Oh, where to choose first?! I'd love to see Italy, Australia, Alaska, or revisit the Caribbean Islands. I haven't been on a real vacation in at least 5 years, so anyplace where I can kick back and relax would be wonderful!
If I could have any job...
This is a tough one. I was a public school teacher prior to the birth of my daughter (and I loved it), but I think it'd be amazing to venture away from the school atmosphere and work from home. Whether that means private tutoring, teaching cyber school, or taking a leap of faith and selling some kind of amazing product, I have no idea. I'm putting my trust in God that I'll find the perfect job that allows for flexibility when my daughter enters Kindergarten.
If I could have any talent...
I'd like to be able to draw so that I can one day illustrate my own children's book.
If I could live any day again...
It's a toss up between my wedding day and the day I gave birth to my daughter. If I were to choose the day my daughter was born, I'd ask to skip out on the labor part and get right to the first moment that my husband and I saw her adorable little face.
If I could have any superpower...
This may sound materialistic, but I think it'd be awesome to be able to snap my fingers and have money appear! I'd use my powers to help others who are homeless or struggling to make ends meet. Of course, my family and friends would make out on the deal, and I'd give millions of dollars to my favorite charities. I believe that true happiness comes from within and not from material things, but money can change our lives in many positive ways, as long as we don't let it alter who we are.
