I'm Okay

I got tagged by Amy (A Tree Grows) to do a four things activity. Okay, here goes nothing...

Four Things in My Bag:

1. Purple and black pens

2. Stretchy book covers with tons of holes in them

3. Lavender lotion

4. Burts Beeswax chapstick

Four Things in My Purse:

Actually, I don't have a purse.

Four Things in My Room:

1. Old porcelean dolls in my closet

2. My laptop

3. Nail polish

4. Cutout drawings that I've been making faster than my brain can think of them :)

Four Things I've Always Wanted to Do:

1. Write and publish a book

2. Raid a yardsale of all the good stuff

3. Travel to Europe (typical, yes)

4. Take a midnight walk that only I would ever know about

Four Things I'm Currently Into:

1. Painting and cutouts, since I'm an art junkie at heart

2. Flats

3. Peanut butter

4. Living in the moment so I can stop thinking so much!

Four Things I Bet You Didn't Know About Me:

1. I hate movies

2. I can't think of anything else!
Four Songs I Can't Get Out of My Head:

1. Welcome to Paradise by Green Day

2. Paparattzi (and I don't even like the song) by Lady Gaga

3. I don't know the name of the song, but it goes, "Dream, dream, dream, dream!"

4. Spiderwebs by No Doubt

I'm tagging Joy (Life of Joy.), audrey. (emotions explode), and xoxo, Hannah (Perfection.). Sorry, I don't know how to add a link with people's names, so I have to do it by their blog titles. Since I don't really have much else to say, I'll post some pictures that I love:

I love the flats and legwarmers combo. Maybe I'll try that this year... are legwarmers considered tacky or slightly vintage? Does anyone know?

This picture inspires me to write something, anything that has some meaning and depth. So maybe I will...

My puzzle may be scattered everywhere, stray pieces attempting to find their way again, but I've decided that it's okay. I'm okay. I've been trying so long to put together myself, the stew of my puzzle, but now I've realized that I am never going to be complete, perfectly knowing all, because life is always throwing something at me, just another piece to my flawlessly chaotic jigsaw puzzle pile. Instead of trying to pick up the pieces and go home, I'm letting them lie there, gathering dust so I can get a better look at things and examine them, looking at them in ways I never imagined real. I guess this is me being me, changing a little everyday, always becoming something different.

And it's all going to be okay.

...Well, I guess I really did have something to say, huh?


  1. Thank you for the tag. (:
    X's and O's, Hannah. ♥

  2. "Spiderwebs" by No Doubt, use to be my answering machine :)

    And I'm glad you came to that decision. Trying to put the pieces of your life together on your own is just too hard and chaotic. That's why I leave it to God, because when I can't handle it (which is all the time), I know He can and I know He will :)


  3. Awesome post =) <3 It was very interesting reading your four things, the pictures (as always) were amazing, and your writing is just so fantastic. Lots of love <3

  4. ♥ ♥ ♥
    I agree with the stop-thinking-so-much-and-just-living thing.


  5. This was wonderful.
    I'm so glad you've figured things out; and that photo is brilliant. xxx

  6. Thanks for mentioning me! And I love the idea of the puzzle pieces. =)

  7. I love the photos and your writing. It's better to just let things be, throw your life for the wind to carry. It always ends up better that way. I'm glad you decided to do that. :)
    And thanks so much for the inspiration you posted on my blog. It means a lot. (:

  8. i love the photos and the post I love peanut butter its like an essential part of my life haha

  9. Im so glad you share my stance of being an art junkie -
