summing up myself is harder than i thought


Day 1, Wednesday: The story of your life in 250 words or less

the story of my life could fill chapters, could fill HAS filled about 6 handwritten volumes that lasted from an angsty 14 year old until the night i slept in my parents' home for the very last time.

but sum it all up? how can i cram 29+ years, and millions and millions of thoughts and ideas into 250 words?

i'll give it my best shot.

She was born in Georgia, and has southern roots and sweet tea in her veins (plus a jigger of bourbon or 2 when the timing is right). She has always gotten lost in the world of words, others or her own.  She's always been the loudest gal in the room, and her friendly nature sometimes means people never see the fire inside.  She has a hard time showing weakness, even if she’s the only one who sees it as being weak.  Disappointing others will bring tears to her eyes…disappointing herself makes the waterworks even worse.  The older she gets, the softer her heart grows, whether she likes it or not.  She has given her heart away twice, and the second time was so much better than the first.  She considers herself one of the luckiest people on the planet to be able to love fully, to share her life with an incredible man.  The family she was born into is so important; the family she has chosen for herself even more so.  The one thing missing in her life right now is a family of her own, to see her husband’s green eyes looking back at her from a tiny face…but she knows now isn’t right.  Soon though…hopefully very soon.

She’s also never been very good at being patient.

Patience is for suckers.

So sweet. :) I can imagine a task like that would be really hard!

I'm very similar to you in so many ways. Loud, outgoing, with a strong distaste for weakness. 75% of my arguments with Matt involve him saying "Claire, do not assume I'm WEAK because _______." lol
