“My parents come from Greece, and we have a little family home in Greece on a hill overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It’s been there for ages and ages. It’s an old, one-room cottage,” Kanelos said. “If I had an unlimited budget, I would go there and build on that hilltop a beautiful Greek, white-washed home with a huge patio overlooking the sea, with lots and lots of bedrooms so we can have guests and family come visit us.”

“I would live in a beach house because I love the beach,” Brown said. And the Missouri native's architectural dreams don’t end at home. At the Severna Park bakery that she’s been running with her husband for more than a decade, Brown has crafted cakes that resemble swimming pools, sailboats, the U.S. Capitol and Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

“I'd love to live in a wooded community in an urban area — maybe in a cottage or something more modern, filled with natural woods, plants and light. Very calming and zen,” said the writer, who has been blogging since 2015. “I'd love to have a studio space for my art and a spare room for meditation. An outdoor fireplace and shower. A screened porch so you can hear the cicadas and crickets.”
