If you subscribe to my blog my email or in reader, you probably already got a sneak peek of this on Saturday. Mental note: don’t work on blogging when its late at night and you’ve been busy all day and you are exhausted. You will have blurry eyes and think that the “publish” button is pretty much the same as the “save draft” button.
I’ve seen this going around the blog world for a few weeks now and since I love a good structured way to put together a blog post…here we go. The ABC’s of things that make this girl happy.
A- Apple. The computer not the food. (Although apples do make me happy too.) I do love my MacBookAir a LOT, however the one thing I am finding that it lacks is a robust blogging software that compares with Windows Live Writer. I’ve done my research and it just looks like this is one area that Macs just don’t live up. Oh well, I will live. The screen shot ability almost makes up for it.
C- my little Chloe girl. Event though she’s not here right now, every time I think of my sweet little one it makes me happy
D- Dark Chocolate. It has grown on me over the years and I prefer dark in all situations now. I mean don’t get me wrong, I won’t turn away milk or white, but if Dark is available, that’s what I’m goin for.
I know that doesn’t have anything to do with Dark Chocolate specifically, but it was just too funny to not include.
E- eatPRAYtri. I do love my little space on the web. Putting my creativity into this and having people respond to it….its just not quite like anything else I have experienced. I can hardly remember life before blogging, and while to some I’m sure it must seem silly, to me it means a lot.
F- Flip Flops. I got these new white ones and they are seriously the best flip flops I have ever owned. I don’t want to ever take them off. Comfortable, fit perfectly, and they aren’t ugly. Winning x 3.
G- Guinness! My main man. Makes my heart smile.
H- Home…where the heart is….for now…
I- Inspiration. Self explanatory…
J- Journals. Those who know me well know I have been journaling for years. Ever since I was little actually. I have a journal that I started when I was 10 and wrote in until I was around 15 (I think) It is a hysterical read, I tell you. (ohhhh…..blog post idea!) I have been journaling off and on in various ways and forms ever since then. For me there is just something cathartic about writing my thoughts down on paper and editing them into functional sentences.
K- Kyle and Kaylee. These two crazy kids are a handful, but I love their ages because it just brings back so many memories of being that age and just about to be a “teenager”. They are funny and impressionable and difficult and I love every minute of it.
L-Laughter. I mean honestly. What is a day without a good belly laugh?
M- Macarons. We all knew this one was happening right? Aaaannnnddd….look what I found whilst roaming around Pike Place Market with the fam on Saturday? You guessed it! I bought one of every flavor. (chocolate is missing because you-know-who scarfed it down already)
N- NEWS! I have some. It’s coming, I promise. This week!
O- Oats! Not eating as often now that summer has actually come to Seattle and its warm, but this is one breakfast food that will likely be a part of my life forever. Just so versatile.
Q- Quinoa. LOVING this stuff. Stalking blogs for recipes. If you’ve got a good one, let me know.
R- Running. It may not seem like it since I haven’t been doing it for a while. But even the “bad” runs, were always still good. Invigorating. Challenging. Looking forward to getting back into it.
S- Seattle. I love this city so much. I am so grateful and thankful that God brought me here 5 years ago. Truly one of the most beautiful places on earth to live (IMO) and I have learned and grown so much since coming here that it will always hold a very special place in my heart.
T- Teaching! Teaching another class starting in August and maybe (just maybe) there might be more in my future???
U- Underwear? Idk…U is hard and when I think about it…I would NOT be happy without it.
V- The Village Church. I listen to sermon on the app or podcast almost every day on my drive home from work. Love them.
X- Xenodochy. Yep. Big fan. Look it up.
Y- Yo-Fro? I haaad to get Fro-Yo in here and this was the best way I could do it. Deal.
Z- Zyrtec. Every day I take it. Makes me not sneeze. That makes me happy.
What is ONE thing that makes you happy?
