A Little List. . .

I saw this lovely idea on Coeur de La, where I'm always left feeling easy-breezy. Does that sound strange? Caroline is just so talented at highlighting the simple pleasures in life that I so often overlook but love to be reminded of.  The enjoyment of a good meal with even better company, the beauty of farmers market produce & pretty wild flowers & road trips with the one you love. The things that make life great!

Anyway this little exercise she posted was so interesting because its an offbeat way to learn things about people.  Not only that but when you think of your own responses, it's interesting to see how you imagine yourself. Also, I'm a bit overwhelmed with work & this is a welcome distraction.
Happy Thursday, the day that is not as exciting as a Friday, but almost :)

If I was a month, I’d be May.
If I was a day of the week, I’d be Friday.
If I was a time of day, I’d be an evening.
If I was a planet, I’d be Venus.

If I was a sea animal, I’d be a mermaid.(hey, they exist! lol)

If I was a direction, I’d be north.
If I was a piece of furniture, I'd be a chesterfield.
If I was a liquid, I’d be gold. lol

 If I was a gemstone, I’d be an opal.

If I was a tree, I’d be a weeping willow.

If I was a tool, I’d be a knife.
If I was a flower, I’d be anenomes.
If I was a kind of weather, I’d be a fall breeze.

If I was a musical instrument, I’d be a piano.
If I was a color, I’d be blush.

If I was an emotion, I’d be passion.
If I was a fruit, I’d be sweet dark cherries.
If I was a sound, I’d be the wind rustling in the trees.

If I was an element, I’d be fire.
If I was a car, I’d be a classic Jaguar.

If I was a food ... I would be garlic.
If I was a place, I’d be a Southern manor.

If I was a material, I’d be silk.
If I was a taste, I’d be savory.
If I was a scent, I’d be vanilla bean & coconuts mixed with sunscreen.
 I would love to see all of your responses. . .

I love when other bloggers inspire each other. Anne inspired me, and I had to do the list. Thank you for your sweet words ... they made my day. I love your list and love that you would be a weeping willow and dark cherries. Much love. xo
