Today I am thankful for coffee dates with my cousin. It’s something we’ve done for the past like 9 months and it’s been a great tradition that brings us closer together. I’ve loved being able to text her just a coffee emoji and set a date. I look forward to every date we have and we often talk for hours. It’s the little things that make relationships strong. She’s like my best friend and I love going out with her. So today Amanda and coffee are what I’m thankful for.
In the spirit of getting to connect with others more, I’ve decided to share 11 things you probably don’t know about me.
1. I Love Photography
While some of you might know this, I love to take photos. I’m working on a photography business and I hope to get far. I love to show how beautiful people are through my lense.
2. I’m The Oldest of Three Girls
I’ve got two little sisters. It’s been such a big part of my life to be a big sister and to be honest I don’t think I live up to the title very well. I could totally be a better sister.
3. I’m Not Actually the Oldest Child
And here I go contradicting myself. I found out that I have an older half brother when I was about 13. My brother is married and has 4 kids, so I do talk about my nieces and nephews. They aren’t a huge part of my life (totally unfortunate), but they do get brought up. So I am the oldest, but I also have a brother who I didn’t grow up with so I don’t consider him an older sibling.
4. I Often Don’t Believe in Myself
This one’s a little more serious/sad, but it’s true. I’ve found that I don’t believe in myself enough. I often doubt myself and don’t feel confident. It’s an issue I’m sure many others face. And I just wanted to share it with you guys because some days are good and easy and some make me feel down and just like relaxing at home and not trying to be perfect all the time.
5. My Favorite Animal is an Otter
I love to go to the local aquarium and watch the river otters play. I could stay there for hours. I just simply love them. Also on my list of favorites is Cats, Whales, Seals, and Octopus
6. My Zodiac Sign is Scorpio
I’m kind of into astrology and I like occasionally reading about my zodiac. I relate to my
sign so well that I even got it tattooed on my wrist. It was my first tattoo I ever got.
7. My Deepest Fear is Infertility
So this is me really opening up to you guys. It’s my biggest fear. I worry so frequently about not being able to have kids. It means everything to me to be a mom. I want to have children of my own so bad and I worry that I won’t be able to conceive naturally.
8. When I Was 8 I Broke My Arms
Yup you read that right. Both of my arms. I was in first grade. I was at my grandma’s house for mothers day and was playing on the swing set. I jumped off and landed on my hands and created a hairline fracture across both my wrists. So I was a little kid with both arms in casts. Then to top my clutzy-ness off I broke my left wrist again in fifth grade by tripping over a ball at recess.
9. Tyler is Color Blind
Not really about me, but still something you didn’t know. Tyler is color blind and totally mixes up colors all the time. He hates getting asking about it. I love it though, it makes our days interesting and fun. It affects everyday life in ways I never expect and it makes me laugh. It’s about the simple things.
10. Tyler was My First Kiss
And I was his. Cute I know right? I’ve known Tyler for almost 6 years. Such a long time. It’s been amazing to be with him for so long. High school sweethearts.
11. I Love Reading
This is such a true statement, but unfortunately I don’t ever have time to read for fun anymore. With so much time spent on school I never get to. So once the semester if over, expect to hear a lot more about what I’m reading.
See I’m already a day late. At least this post series it’s really the thought that counts. Today I am thankful for work friends and friends I’ve met through work. Yesterday I got to spend some outside of work time with one of my coworkers and it was really great. I love talking to this coworker at work and it was really awesome to spend more time with her and get to know her better. It’s really hard for me to make friends so I’m really glad that I got the chance to create more of a friendship.
In honor of today being my two month marriage anniversary, I'm going to share a very funny, naive, and cute story. This is the story of Tyler and I's first kiss.
It’s the summer after our freshman year. Tyler and I had spent 4 months awkwardly experiencing our first relationship. Just 3 weeks after school ended Tyler and I were watching TV in the basement of my parent’s house. I felt like I had been waiting for years for Tyler to kiss me. Wel on this lovely June day I could tell something was going to happen.
We were cuddled up on the couch “watching” a show. As I could feel the tension build, I got really nervous and began to shake. It was about the time I thought the couch would start shaking too that Tyler turned his face towards mine. He gave me the cutest smile and leaned in. It was a perfectly wonderful first kiss. We both let out a nervous little laugh and quickly secured our second kiss.
Our first kiss isn’t my favorite story to tell. We were so young and awkward, but there isn’t anybody I would have rather shared my first kiss with.
Today I am thankful for the small moments. I know this can cover a lot, but today I’m thinking of notes left on mirrors from my hubby. This morning Tyler had to be to work hours before me and we hadn’t gotten to talk as much last night as I had wished (we haven’t seen each other much with Tyler working two jobs too). But when I got up to get ready, I found this note on the bathroom mirror.
It made my day and was so sweet of him to think to leave. I love him so much. So today I am thankful for these moments
Hi! My name is Kylie. I'm 21 years old and am married to my best friend! I love my wonderfully normal life and hope you do too.
