Not the Will Smith movie, sorry guys.
I consider myself to be a fairly articulate person but the more blogs that I read the more inferior I feel about putting my specific situation into words. There are several blogs I follow that I would swear the girls writing them are stealing my thoughts-and describing them more perfectly than I ever could. And living more glamorous lives. (fyi I had to sing the Fergie song in my head to spell out ‘G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S’ what is wrong with me?) I often jokingly albeit enviously refer to these bloggers and how they’re living better versions of my life, but sometimes it’s a relief to know that these people have the same issues and struggles that I do (even if they get to live in NYC or Quebec)
For example, A from Accordians & Lace posted her thoughts on struggling with her independent streak and I feel exactly the same way. I love love love that Jacob and I are so independent and trusting of each other to have separate hobbies and relationships, but we did the totally opposite schedule thing this summer and it was awful. Its weird how comforting it is to spend an evening sitting two feet away from someone when you’re both engrossed in different activities (99% of the time this means me knitting/sewing and reading wedding blogs and jacob playing video games).
Anyway, enough of my thoughts on someone else’s thoughts. Go read her words though -maybe they’ll rub off and make mine sound more eloquent :)
