What I do & weekend update

 So before we get to blogging every day in May, a mini weekend recap.

This weekend was Will's birthday, and our last as an engaged couple, so it was kind of a big deal. Friday he opened his present and we enjoyed some snacks and drinks on our front porch. Saturday was filled with visits to family, a fence estimate for the new house, dinner at Tom+Chee, and seeing Iron Man 3. Sunday we slept in and spent the rest of the day with more family!

And now. Jumping in late for the "blog every day in May" challenge!

When I read Jenni's question "If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer "what do you do?"" my first thought was "lots of things". And that's the truth.

If I had to think of just one word that encompasses all of the things I do, I think it would be "live". I live my life without much predetermination, kind of flying by the seat of my pants, and making sure I get the most out of it. I've never done anything like quit my job and travel the world (though I've thought about it) but I try to live my life with a "yes" attitude. Unless there's a really really good reason not to do something (and sometimes even if there is) I do it. Just to see what will happen.

I love to write and take chances and dream and wish and sit around and will amazing crazy things to happen to me. I love spontaneity and  surprises. I love the unexpected. Most of the time.

So that is my word. If you've read Eat Pray Love, you know what I'm talking about. I love to just live.

What better thing to do than to live. And at the end of everything, you will always be able to look back and say you did it!
