+ I have my first “speaking engagement” for Purpose Box this evening. Public speaking is not my forte, but it’s a short time limit and a small audience, so it’s a great start!
+ While I have never struggled with infertility, miscarriage, or infant loss personally, I find that the longer we are waiting to adopt, the more my heart is in-tune with those families. A week or so ago, a friend of mine lost her week old baby, and I was crushed for days. She isn’t a close friend, but someone I know in passing. My heart was completely broken for their family. I don’t know if it’s a correlation, or just that I’m getting older and empathize better, but the more of these stories I hear, the more they hurt.
+ Legos are my nemesis. If you need to defeat me or stop me in my tracks, scatter Legos all over my living room in the name of fun.
+ I love summer hair. I did pink last year, so of course, I had to do it differently this year, but it’s always so fun! I feel like it brightens my whole personality. The boy got a summer cut, too. See you in a few months, shaggy hair!
+ I bought a poncho with pom poms on it today. I have a feeling this will be my go-to outfit for the summer.
+ Ever since I talked about not washing my hair, I have had so many questions about it. Really, I wash my hair about once a week. It’s glorious. It takes a while to get down to just once a week. Start with every other day and work your way up. I was at twice a week forever. It’s a great change. Try it.
+ I made a cake this weekend that was supposed to taste like “yellow cake with brown icing” from a local deli that closed years (and years and years) ago. It was pretty stinkin’ close. Yum.
+ Have you jumped on the Periscope bandwagon yet? It took me a bit, but I kind of like it. Find me: the_graymatters.
