Daily Life

March 15, 2014


I frequent the kids section at Target. It’s where I found my favorite pair of jeans, my favorite coat, and my favorite leggings.

I worked at a Lexus dealership for three years and have a fair amount of car knowledge, yet I have not had the oil changed in my car for nearly 9,000 miles. It’s a blessings that my car is still running.

I often say ‘I live on the edge’ although I don’t think I’ve done anything that can be classified as super crazy.

Once I have shared a bonding experience with someone new, to me it’s like we’re old friends. It doesn’t take long for me to warm up to people, but until I do I can be incredibly shy. This past week, I was out to eat with a big group of people from church. I felt uncomfortable so I made an origami bird out of a napkin. I didn’t realize that people were going to notice and ask me about it, which kind of defeated the purpose of avoiding conversation.

I really enjoy making a big deal out of other people’s birthdays, but my own birthday overwhelms me sometimes. I do enjoy making a wish on candles though!

I get quite very excited about the littlest things in life. A brand new sharpened pencil, the smell of freshly cut grass, and warm blankets out of the dryer can make my day. Sometimes I jump for joy in the gardening aisle of Target if I see something that I like. I’m enthusiastic.

I remember really specific details about things that I have experienced and conversations that I have. I often worry that I am going to creep people out because I can recall so much about them.

I can’t stand clutter and messes, yet if my room gets too disorganized I sometimes let it stay that way for a little while because I’m too bothered by the mess to tackle it. It does not make sense.

Sometimes the world of blogging can make life seem so prim and proper and glossy and perfect. I enjoy editing photos and finding pretty things to share, but I also appreciate reading about life for people ‘behind the scenes’. This is just a tiny peek into mine. I hope you have a lovely Saturday!
