Did You Know?

 

Damian bought me these crayons. Emotions are like crayons. You don’t want to use one color in excess. You want to appreciate every color and paint a lovely life.

I was reading this article about what not to say to people. It was an article riddled with paranoia and mistrust. Its tone overall was entirely negative. It was unpleasant to read, to say the least. I’m not a fan of articles that base themselves off negative feelings especially those who are meant to be advice columns. Continue reading

Today I said yes to these musical pigs and I don't regret it. They're amazing.

As I grow older, I’ve noticed that I have a hard time saying “No”. On the rare occasions I do say “no” I am overcome by an absurd amount of guilt. It doesn’t matter if the request was absurd or if I just absolutely couldn’t manage to help an individual at that moment, I still feel horrible. I can’t help it. I don’t know why end up feeling so badly but I do. I’ve even noticed that some people will take advantage of your inability to say no while others will insist you please them by disregarding your answer.

My lovely sister Ruthy kissing me (the red baldish baby). She has always been a lovely representation of kindness in my life.

Lately, I’ve been thinking about kindness and what being kind entails. I’ve heard a lot of people use the word. I’ve seen examples of kindness. I’ve been called kind yet I don’t fully understand what it means when people call me kind. What does it take to have that quality? Continue reading

Chillin’ being an Angler. Catching some fish with my hubbs. He’s a Paladin.

Fantasy Life is practically everything I’ve ever wanted in a role-playing game. Okay, maybe not everything but it’s pretty darn close. This title was released to the US on September 2014 for the Nintendo 3DS and yes, I’m a little late to the party but whatevs. It’s an incredible little game that was developed by Level-5, who have made other great games like Ni no Kuni and the Professor Layton series.

This is our magical yard. I’m thinking about planting some pretty things. Not sure what yet.

My husband and I bought a house recently and are finally getting around to moving in and unpacking. I’ve never owned a home before. This is my first magical home so I’m feeling very excited. Owning a home is by far the most adultish thing I have ever done. I had no idea what it actually takes to keep up a home. I’ve learned so many things which will require a few more posts but this post is mostly about friendship.  Continue reading

So, let’s get started.
