Authentic Style (you've got it!!)

(He's got Style ... So do YOU!)

Have you ever stopped to think about the things that make you authentically YOU? If not, give it a try ... Today grab a napkin, sheet of paper, grocery receipt (whatever is handy) and jot down the stuff that makes you YOU.



Here's a few from my list -
(Authenticity)

I love to send stuff to people in the mail - love it!
I'm always looking for a way to add pizazz to my house
(fix the mailbox, add a pillow, hang some cards)

I really enjoy going to Pier 1 (that store inspires me) ... And when I find something way in the back I just can't live without (on clearance) - I do a little dance and song right in the store!

I love sappy love movies and books - I weep like no other!

I am a big fan of Twitter

I try to do at least 5 happy things everyday :) - one of them is to SMILE ...
(at strangers)


My list goes on :)

Cheers to you and your authentic style ...

Happy Wednesday!!
Up next: Authentically YOU Awards ...
Stay Tuned!!

love it! and love you, Wendy - YOU inspre me!! some things that make me uniquely me are
* I love playing in the rain. I go out and dance and twirl and jump and get soaking wet. And of course I don't use a coat or boots or umbrella :)
* I sing all the time: around the house, in the car, in my head, at the store. It makes me happy.
* I love sending people things in the mail too!
* I love surprises for OTHER people, but can't stand them for myself, unless it is a REAL surprise and I am totally unaware of it until it happens.
*I would be happy spending the rest of my life in a bookstore. I love bookstores. They exude calm, so that's where I go when I need to relax. I also love finding little unknown books and buying them. :)

Hmmm, the kinds of things that make me ME....I like to slide in the sunshine and sniff the air to see if I can smell the spring flowers and identify the fragrance. I like to draw on my shopping list and send Mr. Slug to the store so he can find the silly cartoon. I like to listen to a song and try to recreate it from memory on my xylophone. I like to find opportunities to help people when they need it. I like to go to my bloggy pal Wendy's blog to be inspired to write this very illuminating list to ponder on a Monday morning! I will go to sleep knowing that I may wake up tomorrow and have more fun than I did today because you have reminded me what is important! Thanks Wendy!
