I have a tendency to suffer from word vomit. In other words I’m long winded. What can I say..? I like to tell a story. If you’ve got a moment to read, skip this part and go down to the paragraph below. If not continue reading, as this is me via short list:
devourer of books
I crush on vintage because of the stories.
I try to dance gracefully through life-usually I just stumble.
This quote by Neil Gaiman is essentially what my blog is comprised of.
It is me. My life. In all its mundane wonderfulness. I like to think of it as eclectic.
My husband calls me an enigma…I don’t think this blog is that, not really. I’m not even sure I’m enigmatic, I just like it that he thinks so, which is why I put that little bit in.

Gray is my favorite color. I decorate with it. Wear it. Love it. Green, pink, and white are pretty bad ass too!
I like kaleidoscopes. I enjoy looking at the world through them.
I love to read. Books make me happy. One day I’ll have rooms, and rooms, and rooms, full of books. One of the things I love about books is that there are so many. I couldn’t possibly read every book in the world in my lifetime-but I’m sure going to devour as many as I can.
I’m an aspiring novelist. Writing has always been a passion for me. I love the written word, the magic, terror, amazement and possibilities that words can bring.
I’m not a very good dancer, but I pretend to be and it works for me. I love music. I’d be lost with out my iPod/iPhone.
I’m a big fan of fashion. I like to take pictures. I love girlish frilly things.
I’m a goof ball, a dork, geek, and a nerd. I’m crafty. I love techy things. Sparkly things too.
I make a killer sangria. My mojitos are pretty good too.
There isn’t much I don’t like. However…I don’t like ill mannered or rude people.
I’m not a fan of liver.
I love: My husband, kids, family and friends. They are what make this life amazing.
I wouldn’t trade them for anything.
I love to learn. I try to learn something new everyday.
My personal motto is: Be who you are and love it.
I love me. I think I’m great. I’m terribly flawed. I don’t mind. Being perfectly imperfect is right for me. I’m usually bursting with energy and nauseatingly optimistic. I’ve always been that way.
I do have a moody side. I can get depressed. Sometimes a little more than anxious. I’m not a big worrier but when something gets me to worrying it’s hard for me to stop.
For the most part I’m very laid back and easy going. I love to meet new people. I am a social butterfly. I’m also very shy. Is that an oxymoron?
Probably why my husband thinks I’m an enigma.
