less like a peace sign, and more like a free spirit.

i have a friend, who when trying to describe me she said something like this : " you are like a hippie. but not a peace sign wearing, crazy hippie. more like an elegant, fancy, girly hippie, if thats even possible." in lots of ways i agree with her. 

day two
What makes you uniquely you?
i am a mess. i like organized clutter. i think its what i love about thrift stores. things never seem like they are in the right place. thats how i am. my hair is always wonky, my house never put in an order that makes much sense. i wear crazy things sometimes, and if it doesn't match, its "my dream". i often say things funny and use silly expressions. i like things that are old, because they have seen more life than i have. i can not wait to someday live in a house that looks like it belongs to a grandma, but i also love tiffany's, getting fancy, and really clean organized homes. ( i know, that one doesn't make sense)
i am a dreamer. i love to dream about anything and everything. i love love, and everything about it. i have plans for a thousand weddings in my mind, and plan to only be married this one time. i love being in love, and feeling love.
i love barefeet, mismatched kitchens, giant sunglasses, wearing pearls, and wind in my hair. 
i have giant eyes, that show all my emotions.
i am pale. fair skinned.
my hair is black, and has been slowly turning silver since i was 17. 
i love to dance. mostly crazy, wacky, made up dance moves. it makes my daughter and husband smile.
i really want tattoos, but i am to scared to get one. 
i could stay snuggled under a crazy quilt for days. (just because i cant get enough of the quilt.) 
i want my daughter to grow up feeling free to be who she is. i want her to rejoice in her "flaws" and see them as marks of love from the LORD.
my husband is my very best friend. i love that we were created to compliment eachother, and i am so glad that i said, "yes" to him and waited for the LORD to bring him to me, instead of settling for someone else. 
my car smells like crayons, and i love it.
i have crazy stretch marks that i have felt shame over, but am learning to see them as a constant reminder of the time i grew our baby bird in my belly. 
i write. but it's not very good. i dont use capitals, i know very little about grammar, and i am pretty sure i use to many commas. 
my heart has scars from being a teenager, and my LORD and my husband are constantly redeeming them.
my favorite color is pink, but if you came to my house or listened to me talk you would think it was aqua. i am not like any of my friends. if you saw us all together you would wonder how we all got along. i'll tell you how. his name is Jesus. 

 but deeper, much deeper than that, what makes me uniguely me?
i was created. created in the image of my king, and my savior. i was created with pieces of him intricately woven into the rest of who i am. i was designed to be a girl who would turn into a woman and the things that i love, i love because he made me to love them.
