Thank You


Top to bottom: First BBQ of the season, tofu and pineapple (don't they look perplexed by the tofu? ha)//seashells not eggshells//staring at the sun with my parents
     Oh you guys, where do I start? I want to start this like a letter...like Dear Bloggers or Dear Readers, because this post is to you. I guess they all are. They are meant for anyone who wants to listen. 
     At Easter mass, during my after-communion prayer, I rambled on about a lot of things. I thanked God for Easter and everything it means-- sacrifice, forgiveness, mystery, love. I asked God to help me forgive myself and others. Then I thanked God for my family, my friends, and for you. Does this letter sound too sappy already? I'm serious. Where would I be without all of that? If you didn't support this blog, my dream would be like a shooting star, something wonderful that's gone as soon as you realize it's there; something I would never grasp. In supporting this blog you help support my dreams and how can I ever thank you enough for that? So to anyone out there reading this, THANK YOU!
     I'm so glad you feel I have been opening my heart to you. I can't thank you enough for returning the favor. 


Now, since we are on the subject of "the real me" here are 10 things I bet you didn't know: 

  1. I don't drink coffee
  2. I have my black belt in taekwondo 
  3. I think my stuffed animals have feelings
  4. I like cleaning my house
  5. I don't like giving hello or goodbye hugs to people I am just getting to know
  6. My favorite TV show of all time is Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  7. I love to shower outside, not inside
  8. I'm an introvert
  9. I won't eat breakfast foods like pastries or waffles and would much rather eat cheerios and replace the milk with a sprinkle of soy sauce
  10. I hate change
How about you? What's something random about you that most people probably don't know?

    1. hahaha don't worry you're not the first person to tell me this. I should clarify, I SPRINKLE the soy sauce on the cheerios, as if they were rice, and really only if I have no other choice.

  2. I am afraid of the dark. (I actually am using my almost one year old daughters night light in my room..)

  3. I also think my stuffed animals may have feelings. I feel awful that there's one in the closet right now :( I also don't drink coffee. It does not taste good! Two other random facts for ya - I'm not a good sport when it comes to getting scared. I've warned my husband it's a good enough reason for divorce in my books. And two I love wake boarding but almost never get to. Have a great day!

    1. Yes! I'm not alone! Go get that one out of the closet girl, he's probably bummed. I actually have a few in my garage, though, so I shouldn't be talking. They are on a shelf though..they were crowding our bed.

      Getting scared is the worst! I hope there is wake boarding in your near future!

  4. i love coffee way too much, i think i can't live without it. i was obsessed with Buffy as well when i was in junior high, and i secretly wished i were a vampire-slyer and that vampires were real. i realized that i have a height-phobia in high school. and i'm afraid of the sea waves. that's why i never surf, which i regret and i'm about to change that!

    1. Buffy fans unite! Totally had the same fantasy in junior high hahaha

      As far as the fear of waves goes, I think you just need to expose yourself to the ocean as often as you can. The more you understand it, the less scary it really is. Although, I don't think any of us will ever truly understand it.

    1. My parents have an outdoor shower at their house that I use when I come up from the beach. When I don't go to the beach, showering seems like a chore. TMI? Most of the time I surf/shower at least 5 Xs per week. If the waves have been stormy, you will see my hair in a braid. :)

    1. Me too. I like most things to stay the same. I've even hated getting older since I was 7.

  8. Did you find all those shells? They are amazing!

    1. No, I wish. I think the only one I found was the abalone and maybe that cone shell. The shells around here aren't quite as exotic looking.

  9. Getting use to the cheek kissing in Australia was really weird. I bet you would find it especially difficult! I've had a few awkward moments where a girlfriend and I almost kissed on the lips.

    1. I would hate it, but I love hearing about your awkward moments haha. Please gather more stories so I can laugh at them.

  10. I think I read your whole blog from start to finish today. You are such an inspiration! I am currently a law student in New England, but my true passions are writing and the outdoors. You live a life I dream of, and give me hope someday I can make it!! Thanks!

    1. Hey Cait! Thank you so much! This is the kind of comment that lifts up my whole day and stays in my heart. I loved your post on why you're a vegetarian.

  11. I also dislike hello/goodbye hugs... I mean, if you're a good friend, brace yourself for a doozie... but for new people its always an awkward almost touch.

    Also I'm not a fan of waffles or pancakes... but I've never tried Cheerioes with soy sauce... are you being serious with that or just saying you prefer a salty breakfast?

    1. Exactly!

      I am serious about the Cheerios, although I should have clarified that I sprinkle it on them, I don't let them soak in it. And yes, salty breakfast only for me! :)

      Delete
    2. Well that's good to know... I was envisioning a bowl of cheerios with standing soy sauce and I was thinking "that's kinda intense!". :)

    3. hahaha glad we cleared that up, I wound't want you thinking I'm totally weird ;)

  12. Your blog is great! Discovered it recently and have really enjoyed it :) I love seashells as well...I had tons from when I used to live by the beach but I had to leave them all in the states :/ haha I'm probably the opposite from you on the hugging thing....one thing about me is that I hate texting. HATE IT. but can't get away from it (first world problems right??)

    1. Welcome! I can learn from someone like you on the whole hugging thing, although I will probably never change. Ya, texting can be a pain. I used to hate it! I had an old school phone for years and resisted the smart phone, now that I caved and got one texting isn't as bad.

  13. Cheerios and soy sauce? I'm not going to slam it, because since college, I've loved Chik nuggets and chocolate pudding. I don't know what made me do it in the first place, but it's so good!

    One random fact about me is I had a speech impediment until I was 6. Good thing that got fixed or theatre and singing would have been... difficult! :-)

    1. hahaha that's pretty funny. Veggie nuggets now, huh? I wonder how that would taste...I won't knock it either.

      Aww, I bet you had a cute little voice. I say soldier "shoulder" if I don't concentrate. Got to see some more of this theatre side of you!
