Okay, so five things I can’t live without. I’m going to stay away from the serious things, family members, friends, pets, etc…. I think those are kind of a given.
So, here we go:
1. Books. I can’t imagine a life lived without books and hopefully I’ll never have to.
2. Unfortunately…my phone. I never wanted to be a person that relied on their phone, but apparently I do. I text mostly (talking on the phone is practically a phobia for me) but I also check my email and social apps obsessively. I’m not sure if it’s out of boredom most of the time or if it’s really a desire to know what’s going on.
3. My Converse. I love Converse shoes; the classic, old school Chucks. For some reason I always feel more like myself when I put them on. I wear them year round, except for when we have four feet of snow on the ground because they aren’t very good cold weather shoes. I have a few pairs, but I always seem to stick with black or purple. My two signature colors.
4. Ponytail holders or anything I can use to get my hair out of the way. Occasionally, I try cutting my hair short and it bugs me because I can’t pull it back. However, the minute it gets long enough, I rarely wear it down for a whole day. I think I look more like myself with my hair pulled back, if that makes sense.
5. My purple, crocheted afghan that my husband’s grandmother made for me for Christmas the year before she passed away. Purple is my favorite color and the blanket is soft and big enough to wrap around me and I just love it. I rarely let my husband use it, which he says isn’t fair because his grandma made it. Too bad.
So, those are the five things I can’t live without. What about you? What do you have in your life that you can’t imagine being without?
I love that afghan. 🙂 And yes!!! Books!!!
Books are a biggie.
And I always put my hair up too. Which makes me wonder why I just don't cut it? But no…I'd rather have it long and pin it up.
How did I not list books?? Huh.
I cut my hair short, and it usually drives me nuts. If I have the patience to actually grow it out (I can't stand that in between stage…too long to actually look decent, but too short to pull back.), I more often than not have it pulled up into a ponytail or pinned up.
