In no particular order:
Rainy days. Technology (most of the time). Pandora. Fireworks. Mexican food. Walking barefoot in the sand. Purple. Farmers' market. Candlelight. Singing. Roasted carrots. Diamonds (my birthstone!). Cooking. My hot glue gun. Irises. Beef stew. My mac. Sunglasses. Peonies. Traveling. Coming home. Chocolate. Scarves. Reading. Freshly baked bread. Hugs. Recycling. Flip flops. My crock pot. Sunsets. Photography. Cupcakes. Acoustic guitar. Rosemary. London (see: traveling). My hubby. Jacaranda trees. Thanksgiving. Cashmere. My family. Quinoa. Mysteries. Clear, starry nights. Pedicures (see: walking barefoot, flip flops). Cozy soft socks. Plantains. Moonroofs (see: starry nights). Handwritten notes. Lavender. Bonfires. Staying up late.
Anyone who knows me will tell you I am quite the conversationalist. I meet a perfect stranger, and within ten minutes, I could tell you their entire life story... I am also an unabashed dabbler - mainly because life is so busy and there are so many creative endeavors that capture my attention, and so little time to pursue them. As a little girl, I thought I wanted to be a journalist (a career ambition I quickly abandoned once I was old enough to realize how truly depressing the news can be!), but I realize now that what I really wanted was a VOICE. I love reading other people's blogs, and have decided to put myself out there in the blogosphere, give my thoughts and opinions a forum, and let my voice be heard. From daily life, to recipes, to ideas and projects I love and want to try, to shopping deals, to thoughts on current events, to things that make me laugh, and everything else in between, I want to use this blog as a place to collect all the things that interest me and share them with other people. I am the Chatty Dabbler - welcome to my blog!
