Does it ever weird you out, when you think about where you were a year ago? Since my blog is almost a year old now, I can look back at what I was doing. What I was thinking. What was important to me. Those posts can be found here and here.

It’s WEIRD! Almost like peaking into the life of.. a stranger? The people I surrounded myself with, the things I liked to do, the general person I was, it all seems like it’s far away. Almost like how you couldn’t recite scenes from the Parent Trap off the top of your head, but when you re-watch, you can find yourself mouthing, “I have class, and you don’t.” It all comes back to you, but in a was this really my life? kind of way.

I was fresh out of a relationship. Dealing with all kinds of crazy stuff. My self confidence, self image, all those good things, were bruised. Out of nowhere, I shed the skin of the Kate I was for almost four years, and started trying to figure out who the hell I was. What I liked to do. What I wanted to do. The whole process was – messy.

But, life has a way of pulling itself back together. Things smooth out. I read dozens of crime novels. Watched bad TV. Did whatever the hell I wanted to do. The freedom from a controlling and toxic relationship was glorious. That’s all I really want to say about that matter, but I think it’s important to constantly check yourself. Are you with a person who makes you better? Makes you happy? Supports you? Sometimes reading something as simple as this can open your eyes. My favorite bible verse that I have hanging in my closet rounds it out pretty darn well.

“Love is patient,<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(A)”> love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(B)”>  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking,<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(C)”> it is not easily angered,<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(D)”> it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(F)”> but rejoices with the truth.<span class="crossreference" style="font-size: 0.65em; font-weight: bold; vertical-align: top;" value="(G)”>  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

Anyways, coming back to ze present September, here is the last few weeks via my iPhone camera roll:

 
Hi. Today, work was lamer than usual. To cure the workday yuck, I broke out my moccasins that I picked up last week. Who doesn’t love moccasins? And my very favorite t-shirt that I found at Plato’s almost four years ago. As previously stated: queen of hoarding. 
I AM IN LOVE WITH HOT YOGA. I’ve been going twice a week and last night I got my roomz Kristen to go with me. We emerged sweaty and victorious, then shamelessly went to Walmart soaked in yoga sweat. 
 
Left: I have the cutest, sweetest, most handsome boy on the planet. AND! He will be coming to Orlando tomorrow afternoon! :) :) :) 
Right: my pathetic attempt at a healthy lunch – Kate: 0. Fried chicken: 1. 

My baaaby girl Kenz came over last weekend. Obv, we went to Petland. (I mentally kick myself for saying obv, and sounding like Regina George.. but it just happens) These little Australian Shepard minis were so insanely cute. 
& finally: in light of my cutie coming to town tomorrow, my two (current) favorite mushy cute songz. 
happy almost weeekend! :*
