today i'm linking up with some gals from the influence network!
so three things about me. if we were going to be bff, what would i want you to know about me? once i asked my college roommates what my next roommate should know about me. "you smile when you put on blush," they answered. and they're right-- it's how i find my cheekbones. that one's a freebee for you, but i guess it's important to know.
1. i am a total bookworm. i am always, always, always reading a book or dreaming about books. when borders was just a few blocks from our house, tovi and i would walk over, get some frozen yogurt, and then i would wander around borders, just running my fingers over all the book covers. i revisit my favorite books on a regular basis, yes, even mysteries. when i am reading, there is absolutely nothing else in the world that matters. can i tell you a secret? i hope that there's a book hiding somewhere in me, but right now it is deep in my heart and i'm just letting life happen until God calls it to the forefront.
today i'm reading: waiting for birdy, 7, and bread & wine.
2. ten years ago today tovi and i went on our first date! i think we both fell pretty hard for each other (and dang, we were young! just babies!). even though our personalities can be different, we have an amazing relationship, an awesome friendship, and wonderful marriage. baby, here's to ten more (and more and more!).
3. for the love of all that is holy, i cannot drink a green smoothie. but! i totally like the idea of greens and healthy choices in morning, so i often make a breakfast salad. basically the same thing, right? this morning i had a spinach salad with apple, avo, homemade turkey-spinach meatballs (yeah, i got fancy like that), and honey-dijon dressing. yum yum yum.
and what do i love about the influence network? so much!
i've been able to take online classes from annie downs and jessi connolly, and both were so encouraging for my blogging journey-- using this tiny space to speak life and give glory to God and just simply share my journey.
