I have a very important question to ask you...
Are you a dreamer?
Do you dream big?
My entire life I have always dreamed of living a big life.  A few months ago my mom came across of a poem I wrote in 5th grade.  It was in this poem where I stated that I would be a bigger actress than Julia Roberts {insert barrel of laughter here}.  Well, that hasn't come true and I don't act, but I have always been all about dreaming big.

One night a couple years ago Marco and I had some friends over, late in the evening and about 3 bottles of wine in I made everyone come up with one word to describe everyone.  Mine was dreamer.  When we moved to LA I had more stars in my eyes than Marco did.

I think Marco balances me out.  He is a realist.  As you can imagine this sometimes gets annoying with me when I just want him to let go a little and dream.  His dream is to win the John Cassavetes Award for best first time director.

The way I look at dreams is that they do have the potential to become a reality if you put your mind to it.  For some people it means to get married, own a home, have kids and enjoy their job.  To me that is a great dream.  Unfortunately, my husband dragged me out to Hollywood and my dreams have only escalated since our arrival.

Now is the part where I share my crazy dreams with you...

Own and run a successful production company with Marco
See my name in the credits with Executive or Associate Producer next to it
Be a mom
Adopt at least one child
Drive a Bentley convertible 
Travel the world while working on films
Own a home in the Palisades 
Attend Sundance/Canne/Tribeca/Toronto Film Festival each year
Be friends with Jay-Z & Beyonce, Posh & Becks, Kanye, Gwyneth & Chris
Be able to travel home more than once a year
Have Rachel Zoe dress me for the Academy Awards

Yes, I know these might seem crazy to some of you, but in my mind I can actually see most of these turn into real life.  Call me a dreamer, optimistic whatever, I don't care.  There are too many bad things going on in the world, I would rather put my time and energy into dreaming about what could be.

So tell me, I'm curious, what are your dreams?

I love it!! Dream big sister!! :) I think LA is a place where many dream big, but keeping at achieving those dreams can be difficult, so keep at it!

This post is amazing! As are those dreams of yours! Can't wait to see it all come true! :)

My dream has always been a small one- to be a mom, a stay-at-home mom! But I recently added another one to the list- make a difference in animal rescue. I'm not sure in what form, but I just want to save as many as I can!
