Textures are everywhere: The rough edges of a stone wall. The smooth innocence of a baby’s cheek.Thesenseoftouch brings back memories for us. What texture is particularly evocative to you?
I take after Titanium, one of our cats, in one of my favorite textures: velour. I don’t care what time of year it is, a velour blanket is a must for the ultimate luxurious, oh-so-soft touch!
A classic question, revisited: what are the five items you must have on a deserted island?
- Internet connectivity
- Potable water
Tell us about a time when you were left on your own, to fend for yourself in an overwhelming situation—on the job, at home, at school. What was the outcome?
To be perfectly honest, much of my life has boiled down to two choices: sink or swim. Flight or fight. But the situation that stands out the most is when I jumped ship of my own volition by moving out of my mom’s house just two months after I turned 18, and relocating with Daniel 250 miles west to Pittsburgh. Those of you who followed my blogging back in those days know that the decision was easy but still hard to execute, and that there was also a lot of turmoil going on at the time. Still, to this day it’s a decision I don’t regret: I jumped ship and I swam hard.
Our tree is up!
Finally, in the last month of the year, I will kick myself into action and resume daily blogging…starting tomorrow. ♥
