In the mail today there was a regular old business sized envelope hand-addressed to me, bearing no return address. Inside was a page from a newspaper, and stuck to this newspaper was a hand-written note saying "Kelly, Check this out!" and a completely illegible signature. I unfold the paper and the page is a big story about Shults Auto Group and a sale that's going on. "Vehicles to sell for just $29 down and $99 a month with gas for 99 cents per gallon until 2009." Upon further examination, it was easy to see that this page did not appear in a real newspaper. Did they send this to me because we smashed up one of their cars on a test drive? (I'm not kidding...we really did, but it wasn't our fault, and the police report proves it.) It's hard to tell, but I do know one thing...it was kind of creepy to receive something like this in the mail, and it's going straight for the recycling bin!
I'm generally a very happy person with a deep appreciation for my life and everyone/everything that touches it. (I say 'generally' because even I have my moments...). I'm so in love with my husband of six years, and we enjoy everything from quiet evenings at home to biking to exploring Europe together. I'm a big tree hugger and I often find myself thinking of ways to reuse things instead of throwing them away. That makes me a bit of a pack rat, but I'm trying to get better about letting things go. I decided to start this blog because I often find myself pondering the weirdest topics, and I love to write, so I thought this would be a fun stream-of-consciousness exercise. I'm very opinionated on some topics and very passive on others. And sometimes my opinion changes based on my mood. In my journey through life, some of my beliefs have changed, mostly based on personal experience and/or deep reflection. I've had this blog set up for a while, and I've had other blogs before this, but I've only recently started really writing what I think, and I've learned a great deal about myself because of my (sometimes very blunt) honesty. Thanks for reading!
