All in Good Time

It’s amazing what some time and space can do for a gal.

I more or less gave up on blogging quite some time ago because there were just too many things happening in my life that I wasn’t comfortable with. I had plenty of things to be happy about, but I was also dealing with a number of sources of stress. Some of those have gone away, others haven’t, but overall I think it’s safe to say that I’m in a much better place now than I was then.

2014-08-01 18.54.15It feels good to be back. I feel like this is a homecoming of sorts – I enjoyed blogging. It’s a tiny piece of creativity in what is an otherwise largely mundane life (though I like it like that!) and it allows me to share with family, friends and complete strangers on the Internet. I’m still working on feeling centered and happy, so I hope you don’t mind my rambles. I missed you, I missed this, and I definitely missed plastering my corner of the web with selfies :)



Bucket List

What kind of person would I be if I didn’t have a list of things to do before I die?  I’m hoping that’s a long time off, but all the same, I’ll probably get cracking on this sooner than later.  Accomplishments rock, yo.

  1. Run a 10k.  I have no desire to run a half or full marathon.  I think a 10k is more than enough of a challenge for me, considering my past rants.
  2. Travel South America. I took a couple Spanish classes in university and a component of that was the culture and geography of those lovely countries down yonder.
  3. Own 365+ pairs of shoes.  I know I should probably want to save the world or something… but shoes make my heart go pitter-patter. I think it’s safe to say that I won’t be making much progress on this for the next few years.
  4. Get married. I just really want to have the full white dress fairytale.
  5. Own a house. With a yard, a pup, and a nice little vegetable garden. And I’ll plant herbs and bake bread and the sun will always shine.
  6. Write something meaningful. Not that I don’t think that it’s possible that someone, somewhere finds this blog to be one of the most amazing pieces of literature, but really… I’d like to actually write something. I don’t care if it never gets published, or if it is ever read by anyone else. I just want to write something that I feel proud of.
  7. Take my parents on a trip. Maybe not both at the same time (that might be a bit awkward), but after everything they’ve done for me, it’s kind of the least I can do for them.

As more things come to me, I’ll add to this. But do tell, what’s on your bucket list?
