"defining" me

Today was a good day.

We got outside for recess.
I found the most delightful tea cups at Homegoods.
mmb got out of class early.
30 ROCK was hilarious (even if the horrible imitation of a Boston accent made me cringe...).
And, I had the good fortune to discover Natalie's super-inspiring blog. Seriously, this girl is great. Not only does she have some great posts, but her jewelry line on etsy is gorgeous! I am considering committing to a long term relationship with her stunning hair pins!!

Her post today got me thinking about how different things in our lives define us at different times. It is funny how some things are constant, yet some things vary greatly. Here's my take:

Me. On a small scale.


Childhood: 


hours spent outside, imagining and playing

The Secret Garden & Little House series

making forts in the woods

ballet

reading in trees

making dollhouses

Charlie Brown dictionary

dreamer


High School:


cheerleader

hanging out with friends

long walks

first love

babysitter

Dawson's Creek

musicals

China P

butterfly hair clips

dreamer


College 


hard work

first apartment

going dancing

all nighters

dance class

following my dreams

Now


cardigans

scrapbooker

herbal tea

blog-addict

fur babies

teacher

love

picture taker

mac-lover

jane austen

yoga

faithful, hopeful

cape cod

fresh flowers

laughter

learning

aprons

dreamer

discovering

So there is my snippet. How about yours? What "defines" you at different times in your life?
