Wood You, Could You, Live in a Barn?

Live the Barn Life with Log BedsI am a mother of two young boys. They love the riddles and rhymes of Dr. Seuss books, especially my youngest. I used to not be much of a fan, because the stories seem absolute nonsense. However, as I’ve read them to my children and absorbed the messages buried in the nonsense, I have come to appreciate them. I even paraphrased Green Eggs & Ham as the title of this post.

Sometimes silly nonsense has a fitting place in our adult lives. What better way to brighten a day than to laugh? Not a giggle, or a chuckle, but a deep all-consuming laughter that comes from your very soul and doesn’t stop until you are crying with joy. It’s one of the greatest things in life.

Dr. Seuss was a dreamer. That is evident in the books that he wrote. I’m a dreamer too…it is what propels me forward and to do bigger and greater things than I thought I could achieve. One of my dreams is to live in a barn. I’m not necessarily talking about an agricultural icon that has stood on the weathered plains for nearly a century. Instead, I could cultivate and reclaim the wood from one of those structures and use it with reckless abandon in my custom-built home. Barnwood is not only useful for furniture, but also as a wall covering and accent trim around elements in the home. Some may feel using the old splintered wood from barns in a new home is nonsense, but I’m just silly enough to realize that dream someday.

With this Rustic Barn Door Bed, I can, I will, live in a barn!
