IRL-it is amazing to me how many of my friends read my blog, and how many don't.
IRL-I love chocolate. A day is not complete until chocolate has snuck in there somehow. And cocoa in my morning coffee doesn't count.
IRL-I gave up drinking pop (soda, soft drinks) when I was 19. I was cooking at a wilderness camp for 10 weeks, and went cold turkey. And I completely lost my taste for it.
IRL-I drink water and coffee. And a very occasional glass of wine. I drink gallons of water each week.
|I love the purple-blue of blueberry jam.|
IRL-I count my strokes when I am swimming. Only up to 8. I should be doing a flip turn when I hit my third "6". If I'm not, I am not swimming efficiently.
|All sealed. Jeweled beauty.|
IRL-I love quiet. Which is why I am a morning person. The day never gets as quiet as it is at 6:00-a.m.. I don't know if this is because I am from a big family, but I relish silence.
|ready to go tubing this weekend|
IRL-I eat granola with raisins for breakfast every day. And generally milk and cookies for lunch. I know, I am such a health nut. I eat a lot of fruit and veggies throughout the day too. My big meal is at dinner. It works for me.
|catching frogs. They caught at least a dozen.|
IRL-I'd much rather you tell me the truth, than tell me what you think I want to hear, or lie to me. I have a very hard time forgiving lying, and learning to trust again. I will put up with a lot. I will forgive a lot. But lying is something that I just can't stand. EVER.
|thrift haul. Baby doll stroller, $3, Goodwill.|
|why use it for baby dolls, when you can push your cousin?|
I love how Meres paused to look at N like, "are you okay over here?"
IRL-I hardly ever pay full price for anything. Maybe a certain grocery item needed for a recipe. But that would be about it.
|Meres' turn. Hilarious twin moment.|
IRL-I boldly and confidently express my opinions, but I also am a firm believer in "live and let live." What works for me does not work, or have to work, for everyone.
IRL-I have had four home births-no pain meds, no doctors. Just a very competent midwife, Mr. Hippie and my mom in attendance. And, at some point in every birth I wonder, out loud, why in the world I am going through this again, at home, without any meds?!
|first handful of bush beans from garden|
|cherry tomatoes. Going to win the Guiness Book of World Records|
for biggest cherry tomatoes.
IRL-Olive Garden is my all time favorite restaurant. We dine there on a very regular basis. So much so, that it would probably be cost effective to own stock in OG.
|and another. Natural beauty.|
IRL-I have brown hair, blue eyes, a wrinkly belly, and lots of freckles. IRL-I love connecting with people. IRL-I don't wear much makeup, I love polka dots, and I am so NOT on the stripe wagon. IRL-I wear a lot of neutrals. IRL-I love jewelry. IRL-I march to the beat of a different drummer.
|Embrace the camera|
IRL-people often misjudged me because they can't see my heart.
In real life I am not much different than on my blog.
How does your IRL self compare with you Web self? Do you boldly let your personality pour out in your web presence?
BTW, I am looking forward to meeting a whole lot of you IRL at Influence this fall!
