Hello Dolls!

I thought I would share a few random things about me today, so here goes...

1. I have a mole on my lower lip. It's a little weird, but not super noticeable when I'm wearing lipstick.

2. I got my first wrinkles this year. They are around my under eyes (you can see them in this picture). Even though I think wrinkles are beautiful on others, I feel awful about mine.

3. I'm almost thirty and think I have nothing to show for my life. I'm nowhere I planned to be, and it seems like all I've done is survived. 

4. I have inflammation throughout my body but my doctors don't know why. It hurts a lot and I just have to deal with it until we can get more data. Along with fibromyalgia pain, I am pretty miserable.

5. I love baking. This year I finally decided to start making cakes from scratch. I'm still working on it but it's really fun. Today I am thinking about making this clementine vanilla bean quick bread. Doesn't it look yummy?

6. I almost always know exactly what I want but I have trouble saying and doing the things that will get me there. It gets to the point where I can't even speak and my words get caught in my throat. I'm working on it though.

7. I am bird obsessed. The last few months I have been trying to learn more about different species of birds. I bought a book with info on North American species and it's fascinating. Right now I am actually watching a nature show about hummingbirds, they are amazing! We have a lot of hummingbirds, doves, and birds of prey in our area, makes me happy to live here. 

8. Sloths scare me. I know they are all the rage in cuteness right now. But they really freak me out.

9. This year I became the worst emailer on earth. I used to love connecting and writing emails to friends and family, now I'm lucky if I can manage writing one email a day. Thing is, I still love receiving emails. If I owe you an email, I'm sorry it has taken so long! I really am trying my best.

10. I discovered ginger cookies this year. These are my favorite, they are light and crisp and really do help when I have an upset tummy. I eat these instead of chocolate and it is such a better option. 


What is something random about you? I'd love to hear!

Next post I will share the recipe for an amazing winter cocktail. Talk then!

xx, C

  1. Hi Catherine, its nice getting to know more about you.I too feel many a times, that I haven't yet achieved anything that I set out to do in life. But I guess we take life too seriously sometimes. Living each day with happiness is what matters most. Don't be too hard on yourself. P.S- I don't see the wrinkle. Your perfect.


I adore your notes! Please don't be shy! :)
