A wee bit about me….
Green. I love the color green.
If I were on a desert island and could only eat one meal for the rest of my life, I would chose Lamb Pasta. Or coconut anything. <- Actually, let’s go for coconut. Wait, isn’t the desert island question supposed to be who would you chose to be with? Let’s go for my husband. No, my son. No, my husband. Dang, these are hard hypotheticals. Or is the question what three things would you bring? 1) sunscreen (I burn like a biscuit); 2) an electrolyte beverage of some sort (see coconut above); 3) a knife (I’m assuming there is something that I should be cutting. If nothing else, I can use it to improve my mad julienne skills. Wait. Bad idea. Last time I tried to julienne, my thumb got in the way. But hey, how many people can say they julienned their thumb…this girl. I promise I will just use the knife for “survival” purposes…and maybe occasionally to practice my knife throwing.)
Balance. That is the word that describes me best. No, I’m not a gymnast. I’m more of a wannabe yogi.
I’m not sure what shape this blog might take. I have passed around ideas in my head throughout the years (yes, years…I might be prone to procrastination at times…especially when it involves things that I find somewhat intimidating or if it involves going to Wal-Mart. I am not a fan of Wal-Mart.) I do know that I have a story to tell. Hopefully it is a story that wants to be heard, but that is not for me to decide.
I have experienced a range of life events. I trudged through the crappy depths of depression and I am happy to report that I have emerged victorious on the other side. Life isn’t all rainclouds and melancholy, nor is it all rainbows and glittery unicorns. I have learned that we need to embrace the things that help us, hurt us, and move us forward.
The daily ideals of a perfect Pinterest life are often smashed by the
mewmew mjolnir hammer of reality. (On a side note, I seriously just googled Thor’s hammer and apparently there is much discussion over how to actually pronounce the name of the hammer. I always thought they said mewmew BUT I also always thought that was really weird and sounded more like something a cat lady would wear around the house…or to Wal-Mart.)
I hope to fill this section with my thoughts on living a healthy, granola-girl life. In balance. In humor. In grace.
Trees. Outdoors. Sunshine. Balance. Green. Hikes. Yoga. Kiddos.
There are lots of things that I love. I want to share them with you in hopes that you may love them too.
I paint. I take pictures. I write. I make crafts. I DIY. I am most happy when I am making something. I have an innate desire to create (I have the closets full of supplies and a kid to prove it). I hope to share tutorials of what to do and maybe, more importantly, what not to do….like julienning your thumb. Bad idea.
These are the things that are on my mind. These are part of my story to tell.
