The "list of 25 random things". I was tagged. I ignored it. I kept reading other peoples lists. I got intrigued. I liked where it took my thoughts.

  1. I have a few songs that at any given time i love to put on repeat & listen to over & over & over & over & over ....again.
  2. I consciously battle perfectionism. I know I am one but I really try not to be.
  3. I could eat either pizza or sushi every day.
  4. I thought I'd met the guy I would marry the very first time I saw my husband. That was in 1999 - we got married in 2007.
  5. I cannot get enough of the smell of moist, fresh dirt!
  6. I love being either right smack downtown in a big city surrounded by people - or in the middle of nature w/ no one around.
  7. Swimming & playing the piano are both things I love to do - but hardly ever do right now.
  8. I highly prefer to wake up to a cloudy, rainy day than a blue sky, sunny day. It makes me feel calm inside & out.
  9. I know, I know...dark chocolate is better for you - but give me a good organic milk chocolate bar.
  10. I have successfully gone 28 days without eating "wheat" or "sugar". I plan to go many many many more days.
  11. I would love to be part of a book club.
  12. I regularly get in a mood & i go get a box and start going through and "decluttering" our place.
  13. I spend an average of 20-22 hrs a day with my husband since we both work from home - usually we still can't wait to go on a date or cozy up on the couch together in the evening. Sometimes it hits me just how crazy that is & I feel lucky.
  14. One of my favorite things to do is to go on a walk by myself with my camera.
  15. I was President of the Communication Club at Western Washington University for 2 years.
  16. Plagiarism. Ask me sometime. It's not just word to me.
  17. I could pretty easily stay up till 3-4 o'clock a.m. most nights. I get a 2nd wind at night time.
  18. All I have to do spend a few minutes looking at certain picture of a little boy in my house & I feel better. His eyes are amazing.
  19. A lot of times I feel I'm too intuitive/perceptive for my own good.
  20. In the winter, I like lots of covers on my bed - not for warmth....but for weight.
  21. I'm part of a goal making group. I think it has the potential to change my life.
  22. The idea I think about most from my University time is the Social Penetration Theory / The "Onion" Theory
  23. If I could do anything & be successful at it - I would want to write, illustrate, create books.
  24. I would become a vegetarian or a vegan quite quickly if I knew I could still give my body what it needs to be really healthy.
  25. My close friends, our family, and Daren - they all mean way way way more to me than I feel like I ever express.

It's such a joy to read your blog. You are so amazingly alive, and talented, and enthusiastic, and aware, and striving, and observant... and so endlessly in love with All that is.

One day you will convert this blog into an illustrated best selling book about your life, and it will help others discover theirs.
