Perhaps one of the best Thursdays I’ve had in awhile!
A little background on the above picture I took before the list.. (or you can skip down!)
I grew up with two very different sides of the family – the reserved, germ and outdoors hating Korean side, and the hiking, fishing, roll in the dirt American side. Well, I was a reserved, quiet roll around in the dirt nerd. I’d spend hours hunched over dandelions, clovers, and grass whispering to them, noticing every little detail of the ground around me. I was embarrassingly dubbed “the crazy nature nut” by my sisters friends.
I went outside to photograph flowers today, (because I don’t like it and decided to go outside of my normal subjects) and found myself in awe at the details I’ve missed, so I spent today peering at curiosities on flower petals, varieties of spiders and so much more. I also caught that lucky shot of the seed flying off the dandelion.
♥ Strawberry picking – in which I also spent a long time squinting at the plants and berries as families passed me by quickly down the other aisles. Expect strawberry pictures and a review on the farm soon!
♥ Dreams about naming my daughter in my dreams Jack, after the Jack in Mass Effect 2, which I would never do haha.
♥ Realizing that my new kitten not only has thumbs, but also has a protruding RAPTOR CLAW between his regular toes and his “thumb”. He still needs a name, and hopefully one more creative than his big brother..who is dubbed Thumbz.
♥ Anything tropical! I recently bought an Island Guava candle from Yankee Candle, and Sex on the Beach perfume from Demeter
♥ Exploring Buhl Mansion Guesthouse and Spa – Some of the beds were so big they had a stepping stool with a few steps to climb on the bed!
♥ Eat, Pray, Love – I’m 1/3 of the way through, and it was more than I imagined. I normally reach for sci fi, or art books but a friend recommended it and I’m enamored with every single word.
♥Don’t fear the free weights! by my favorite, Stumptuous. Old article, old favorite of mine, and even though I’ve now long agreed with the reasons, I still love it, it’s a good read.
and a small side note – I know this is my Things I Love Thursday list, but I noticed I write a lot cheerier, girly, and more upbeat than I really am, and now that I’m blogging more than I did before, I feel like somewhat of a stranger reading some of my posts. I can’t decide if it’s good or bad.
Has anyone felt “fake” or struggled finding their online voice when you first started up your blog?
