Yes, I do realize that today is the 9th and I’m posting about Day 5 and skipping Day 4, but I am (nearly) current on Instagram and I’m being gentle with myself when I’m not able to 100% achieve my exact initial goal. I’ve been working on what will show up under #1 here this past week as well as have some fun and time to myself. Anyway, the December 5th prompt was “5 Things About Me” and I try to keep them both interesting and honest. There’s a balance point for me about being open and keeping some things to myself that don’t necessarily need to be out for the entire world to read. But here you go: 5 Things About Me.
Orange. This prompt stumped me a little bit at first even though I’m literally wearing an orange sweater right now. But then I thought outside of the box, so to speak. I’ve been feeling a little down this morning - the roller coaster of emotions that comes with trying to make some changes and transitions in my life and the pendulum swings from super excited to what the heck am I thinking - so I decided to treat myself to my favorite drink from the cafe in my building.
This past year had many wonderful moments and trips with beautiful photos, but one of the favorites is of my dear friends during our trip to Germany this spring. J has one of those souls that seems to see through all the bullshit. It was such a privilege to stay in her home and spend time getting to know her son and stay up late talking over tea on the porch.
For the past several years (since I’ve been on Instagram) I’ve participated in Susannah Conway’s December Reflections photo challenge, a conglomeration of daily prompts and reflections as we end this most recent year.
