Freckles & Fun

Somehow I have surrounded myself with redheads. My mom is a redhead. One of my best friends is a redhead. And (my favorite), my husband is a redhead. They make up 2% of the population. They are a rare breed. They are different, they stand out, and they are unique. All the qualities I love in a person! Some might remember how Charlie Brown was in love with a little redheaded girl at school. He would always be sitting on the school bench, eating his peanut butter sandwich, and wishing the little redheaded girl would come and sit with him. How cute and romantic. I think once in her life, a woman is entitled to fall madly in love with a redheaded man. And that's just what I did. 

Paper Pages

I love bookstores. A bookstore is one of the only pieces of physical evidence that people are still thinking. And I like how these bookstores break everything down real simply for you. Fiction and nonfiction. In other words, these people are lying, and these people are telling the truth. That's the way the world should be I think. I would say the main competition for a book is a video because for some reason people feel they need to bring home a big rectangular block of something they don't know the end of. But I must say the big advantage of a book is it's very easy to rewind. Close it and you're right back to the beginning. I could spend hours meandering through those isles of pages (and sometimes I do) and find all sorts of treasures. I love the smell of an old or new book, I love the crackle it makes when you open it and start to split the spine, and I love that reading a new book inspires me and teaches me all at the same time. Oh, how I love books!

Little Spaces

The movies will always be on of my absolute favorite activities. But to be honest, my favorite part of the movies is going to the movies. You're in the car, trying to make it on time. Maybe you'll snag good seats. Maybe it'll be a good movie. Maybe you'll love it. You don't know yet, and when you're on your way it's still possible. I love that I'm definitely doing something and haven't done it yet. That's a pure life moment. After you get a job and before you have to do it. It's the spaces between life that I love the most.

Dinner of Champions!

I don't cook. I do have a kitchen, I've been in it. To me, a kitchen is just a room to hold a toaster and a microwave. That's the way I think of our little place. Bedroom. Living Room. Toaster Room. I wish I could cook these amazing dishes and beautiful meals, but quite frankly, I just don't have the time. And when I say I don't have the time, I really do have the time. I just don't have the patience to spare 45 minutes to prepare a meal and end up with an empty plate. I love good food and I really admire someone who can cook. To carefully add ingredients, time everything just right, and create a beautiful and yummy masterpiece is a work of art. But at the end of the day, I am very satisfied with my bowl of Spaghettio's.
