Confessional Friday

Despite my attempts to put to death my obsession with consistently perfect, though-provoking, and organized blog posts, I have not posted in over a month. Don't get me wrong! I check blogs often, and even have a pile of ideas in my head for great blog posts I'd love to publish. But it just doesn't happen. I guess I don't naturally default to writing blog posts when I have spare time. It's also rather a business putting photos on my computer and then uploading them (the downside to not owning a smart phone from which I can snap a picture, plug into my laptop, and upload a photo in under 5 minutes).

However, I have been inspired by Olivia to start a weekly post called "Confessional Fridays." Maybe I'll include a photo from random times of my life as well. Without further ado...
  • Right now I'm discovering music artists Iron & Wine and Bob Dylan, among others. Earthy, sincere, simple.
  • I have always worn matching pajamas. (Right now they're red flannel.)
  • When it comes to the heart of me, what I'm really about - what's in my soul - I'm as black as a white person can come. But I am terribly (and unashamedly) white in all other aspects. I buy fresh cow's milk every Saturday morning. I prefer Apple products. I love vintage clothes and furniture and everything else.
  • I am reading The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
  • Every day I learn over again that doing what I ought rather than what I want always brings more joy.
  • Land's End (classic) + Anthropologie (Audrey Hepburn) = my true style. Still working on fully creating that.
  • I am currently studying for the DSST exam Introduction to World Religions.
  • I'm a HUGE personality nerd and have either given you the Myers-Briggs test, told you that I would like to give it to you, or have thought about it but haven't found a non-awkward opportunity in which to tell you.
  • My favorite color is a very specific shade of yellow. Somewhere between mustard and marigold.
  • I really, really, really love my little brother. He is amazing. He is super talented, smart, and completely hilarious. He knows me better than anyone else on the whole planet. Lucky.
  • I am in love with a place. I thought for a long time that it was because of the people within (who are some of my best) and the memories with which I associate it (which are my favorites). But no. After so much time has passed, it appears that I am literally in love with the state of Colorado. I've always been quite certain that I would live there again.
  • Three weeks ago I dressed up as Rapunzel (wig and all) for the 4th birthday party of a little girl I have babysat since she was new. My heart loved the fantasy and imagination of it all.
  • Tomorrow I am going to see The Secret World of Arrietty. I am excited because I adore two things: Hayao Miyazaki films and little things (especially little people).

Probably if we ever released an album, this would be in the artwork somewhere.

  1. Whoop, whoop! I'm so glad you are doing Confessional Friday's! Also, I love your confessions! They made me smile, and think "that is SO Anna Kate!". My favorite is the matching pajamas :)
