Fill-in-the-Blank Friday!

Once again, from the lovely lauren at the little things we do!

1. The best piece of advice I was ever given was
when my college minister told mr to tell Mark that I liked him, or get over him, because I was making myself miserable. I sort of owe my marriage to her, in a way... Thanks Fish!

2. If I had a million dollars to give to one charity I would give it to The Lyme Disease Association. Lyme Disease nearly killed my best friend, and it is a highly controvesial and inflammatory issue in the US right now. It also happens to be the fastest-growing infectious disease in the country. It is not so easily cured as you might think. It is scary. It can be life-threatening, it can be permanently debilitating. What's scariest is that the powers that be do not recognize any of these things as fact... *steps off soapbox*.

3. If I got to choose my "last meal" it would be pan-seared ahi tuna on a bed of salad greens with wasabi-vinegarette dressing, and freshly made creme brulee for dessert .

4. My hair is red! I like it. It's different. But it doesn't always like to behave....

5. If at first you don't succeed you are not a failure. Take a minute, breathe, and try it again .

6. I have always been very passionate and excitable. I'm loud. i giggle and squeal and make noises and funny faces. I wear my emotions on my sleeve. And I've only started to be okay with that in recent years.

7. Oh....and by the way.... I think that friends are a gift from God. As is laughter. And possibly ice cream... and I am thankful for all of them, and having people in my life who love me :)


  1. I love creme brulee! And that meal you described sounds amazing!

  2. #7: Amen.
    #4: I like it!! I wish my hair was like yours!!!
