Alphabet Soup

A friend of mine wrote this post and I had to take a page from her book and see what I could come up with. I have literally been filling in the blanks since she posted this. I didn't want it to be meaningless so I took my time finishing this.

A is for "Austen" because Jane knows how to write a romance.
B is for "belly". I'm working on my abs because they need to be flatter. This woman has some great instructional videos for workouts.
C is for "Craftster". My absolute favorite website full of crafty inspiration.
D is for "diet". I'm trying to work more on eating nutritiously so I've been thinking about a well-balanced diet.
E is for "effervescent" which is how I've been described. I happen to agree. ;)
F is for "friendship". This past year has definitely tested some friendships and I love all of you who have stood by me.
G is for "Green". My favorite color and my way of life.
H is for "Harry Potter" Yeah, I'm a fan. Some day I want to have a Harry Potter room in my future house.
L is for "learn". I never realized how much I love to learn new things until I graduated college. Hmm...a little late, right?
M is for "movies". I have too many favorites to name. Yay for Netflix and local libraries.
N is for "naive". Sad, but true. I tend to be naive about life.
P is for "photography". I love my new camera and I've always loved photography.
Q is for "Questions". The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. ~Albert Einstein
R is for "recycle". Did you expect anything else?
S is for "sibling". I've got mad love for my brother. Enough said.
T is for "Tollipop". My new favorite blog. Well, not new since I've been reading it for a long time, but I appreciate her writing style and photography skills more and more.
U is for "USPS" Oldest mail delivery service in America is closing many branches to cut costs and the declining use of our national service.
V is for "Vermont". I will always be a Vermonter at heart. Give me maple syrup, moose, and the great outdoors any day! Oh, yeah, and definitely some Cold Hollow Cider and donuts.
W is for "writing". This is one of my early efforts below. Clearly, it wasn't that good because I only got a B.

X is for "Xylophone". Okay, it's not really, but it reminds me of the book Animalia by Graeme Base. Every letter of the alphabet has a page and every single thing on that page starts with that particular letter of the alphabet. Plus, the illustrations are amazing!
Y is for "yarn." I'm a yarn whore (Thanks to KK I have a sign that says that I am).
Z is for "zest". As in "zest for life". I do have zest, but my zest for life can be lacking at times. I'm trying to experience all those fun things that I got to do growing up that I haven't been able to enjoy in my adult life.

If you read all the way through this, you rock. Hopefully, you learned some fun things about me. Or maybe you already knew them, but too bad, because I got you to read them again. HA!

hmm. I guess I rock then. I forgot about "yarn whore," says the "libho."
