It seems to be a trend that people are trying this whole "blog every day for a month" deal. Or going the complete other direction and doing a whole month without the connections via blogging, facebook, instagram, etc.. Jenni over at Story of My Life is doing a month long challenge to blog every. single. day. this. month. Yikes! The only thing that made me possibly thing I could also follow her lead? She provided prompts. So possibly I can stick to it if I don't have to think of a topic for everyday (because let's be real...that is so much pressure!). So here we go May. A month of blogging. Can I do it?
Jenni's first challenge. Your life story in 250 words or less. This is normally something I would agonize over! Notice how I have never created an "about me" section on the blog? Partially it is because I am so paralyzed by the idea of trying to sum myself up! So big deep breaths...here we go.
I am a West Coast Gal who has landed in an accidental DC life. A lover of poodles, baking, stripes, creative outlets, royal family news, and skiing. I frequently feel out of place and am constantly contemplating if life is supposed to "be like this". (Which I have slowly started to answer with: "Who the heck knows").
Having grown up in the remote state of Idaho (ok not that remote!) I have a deep appreciation for skiing, nature in my backyard, and the luxury of a nice slow pace of life. I have a wonderful family and love being a daughter, sister and aunt.
I spent my college years in Seattle, making friends that I will carry with me my whole life (oh...and picking up my degree). After school I followed a guy to DC, where we both grew up, defined ourselves, and found that we were not exactly meant to spend the rest of our lives together. Having life take a twist I didn't expect, I stayed in DC. Have attempted to carve out a life for myself here and have ultimately found love, bigkid life, and a whole lot of stories to tell. Deep down I know my heart is always going to be on the West Coast and hope that the next chapters of my life happen to take place on the right side of the country.
