Day 8 | Beautifully different. Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different - you'll find they're what make you beautiful. (Author - Karen Walrond.)
Seriously? What doesn't make me different?
I'm a natural blonde - meaning I have blonde eyebrows and eyelashes.
I have a scar on my left knee from falling off my bike as a kid. I have scars on my belly from gallbladder surgery and a c-section.
I freckle and burn very easily.
I'm very candid about what I think (some call it blunt - semantics).
I'm NOT photogenic. BUT I have a creative soul.
Both my big toenails are still growing out from the Breast Cancer 3Day walk in October 2008.
I hate dirty dishes in the sink.
I have zero tolerance for rudeness, incompetence, and waiting in lines.
I love the ocean. And sunsets. And my family and friends.
And it is a package deal. All or nothing. The good with the bad. It's all who I am. And isn't that beautiful?
Day 9 | Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans. (Author: Shauna Reid)
I am the consummate stay-at-home-body. An introvert at heart. I do not care for large gatherings such as the cocktail parties I am occasionally called upon to attend for work. One night of being "on" for hours on end, chatting it up with people I barely know, can leave me physically and mentally exhausted for days after. So I can readily assure you that no socks have been rocked in 2010. Now... put me in a room full of my tribe and I'll be telling a different story! I never said I don't like to have fun!
