Ever since I can remember, I have been collecting items for my future home. It started out in a plastic shoe box under my bed but it soon overflowed its box. Then, I got a bigger storage container that went in the attic with my things in it. What I really wanted was a hope chest like Kristin had when she was still living at home. So for Christmas 2009, my dad made me my own hope chest. I knew about it ahead of time so I was able to pick out the type of wood I wanted. When it finally made it up to my room after Christmas, I put in the items that I had in various places and I think half the space was used right away.
