bean's place.

Abby posted a poll on the d&r board yesterday; the question was "what would be your fun dream job?" The funny thing is that this is something that I think about all the time. I have my fun, dream job all mocked up in my head...

I have a lot of passions in life. Besides my family and friends, three passions in my life are coffee, photography and graphic design. My dream is to own and run a coffee shop, where I also display/sell my photography and graphic designs. Ahhhhh... just thinking about it makes me happy. I would love a really old building with character- exposed brick with the coffee and pastry menu wrote out on a chalkboard. A kick-ass to-go menu and Web site designed by yours truly and my own photos displayed proudly on the walls. I can't imagine being any happier {assuming that it is a successful business!}

Another interesting tid bit about my "plan" is that ever since I was a kid my nickname has been Beano. I still remain Beano to mainly all of my family and my close friends. This name has also found itself several counterparts, such as Bean and ChellyBean. I can't remember my mom ever calling me anything other than Bean for that matter. Lucky for me, my highly-accepted nickname is quite the catchphrase for a coffee shop! Here are a couple of my ideas below. But if this "plan" were ever to be taken more seriously I would love to think of a very creative play on the word.

Hopefully when we are bit older {and wiser} and more financially stable, if this plan is still near and dear to my heart, it might be something that would could actually pursue. But for now it's nice to brainstorm and daydream... It's always good to have a dream, right?

So what are you dream jobs?? Anything that you might actually try to pursue in your lifetime? And if you think I'm crazy, feel free to mention it in the comments {but it's likely that won't stop me.}
