... or came into a huge sum of money.
I was thinking about this today as I was cleaning out a paint tray. I'm not sure what caused the memory but I was thinking about when Story was little and we went to Sears to get her three month portraits taken (super classy I know. but they would send me coupons. I was broke) My good friend Emily worked there. I then got to thinking about hopes and dreams. How much we have all grown up, and given up for our children. Emily wanted to a a photographer. For as long as I can remember, that's what she wanted to do (I think she also wanted to join the military at some point too) But photography was something she was really passionate about. We're not as close as we have been so I don't know if this is completely accurate, but it seems like she's gotten away from her passion. You know how it is. Throw in a few kids, husband, house, and school. There's no time for anything else. While thinking all of this I had the huge desire to buy Emily a really nice, professional camera. I wanted her to be able to capture all of the great moments in her life. I then quickly came back to earth and remembered : We are broke. :) It did get me to thinking more about what I would do if we had money. I mean, like winning a huge lottery (after taxes) money.
The in-laws would get a Mini Countryman
Dad would get a Motorcycle
Diana would get an art studio
Emily would get that camera :)
via I don't know much about cameras so I just picked one that looked cool. Don't judge.
Jordan will become a Rock Star
Story will have a full ride to college
Our debt will be paid off
I will get a house
Wow, it was a lot of fun putting together this list :) Maybe one day we can make a few of these things a reality. Hopefully without winning the lottery. Cause all of this hard work and sacrifice is bound to pay off, eventually.
What would you do if you won the lottery? Would you apply it to better things?
Let me know in the comments! :)
