Ralph Waldo Emerson
Yesterday, while attempting to find a small notebook to use as food journal (I found 3 abandoned ones, in case you were wondering... apparently a pretty notebook can't make one commit to such things), I stumbled across a bucket list of sorts. A things I really want to accomplish in life list. Towards the top? Graduate from college. Check. I'm not sure exactly when I composed this list, but I'm sure it was within the last 5-6 years. And I've already crossed something off. Something big. I had a moment of emotion at this realization.
May has been a big month. 2013, thus far, has brought a lot of life and perspective changes, actually. May has been no exception. I have taken a lot of photos over the past 29 days, and think perhaps it was an unconscious attempt to document said changes. A way to go back and look through my eyes as they currently see the world around me. I assure you the photos themselves won't reveal life's unanswered questions; but they'll give you a peek into what life has been like in my neck of the woods as of late. The rest of this week (and month, really) will be dedicated to this momentous chunk of days.
I tried a new smoothie at the co-op (I'm smitten)... and it blew my socks off. Holy moly fresh ginger! // Kiddo left me a lovely present on the hood of my car. Even dandelions have a certain beauty. // I'm desperately trying to cut back (even more) on dairy, but can't resist froyo with bursting bobas. Because I'm a 13 year old girl. // My favorite property is on the market. Too bad we aren't buying. I love this house and have since the moment I first laid eyes on it five years ago. // The ivy is taking over. I just adore these tiny pink leaves.
