It's Secret Time

Happy Saturday!

When you are reading this I will be on my way to Columbia University for a Lucy Caulkins Writing Workshop.  A friend from work and I are going on a bus trip--she's picking me up at 5:20!  Wayyyyy too early for me.  I'm great between 10 am and 4 pm.  Anything before that and I'm a little wonky :)

Today's post is (drum roll please) Share a Secret About Yourself!

These posts are fun/hard.  I'm a pretty open person, but also strangely private about certain things.  I don't like divulging everything here on the ole bloggy, but I guess I will share this.

So lean, (I'm doing that shifty eye gaze thing to see if anyone is listening)



ok stop--too close lol

My secret is that when I go to the beach, the mall, or any place where there are a bunch of people, I secretly pick out my favorite and pretend that they are my "future family".  I don't know if this is weird or not?  I just go, okay, that guy is cute and he is playing with his kids?  Ok, I'll pretend that is my future husband and ooooh,  look!  His baby just fell and now he's holding her and wiping the sand off her polk dot babykini!  Tell me there is anything cuter than a baby in a bikini?  You can't :)

To be clear, I am in no way talking to these people or trying to talk to said hot dad.  I am just observing their cute familiness.

So there is my secret.  I'm a closet family-future-thinker.

What are your secrets?




  1. I'm applying to Columbia so I'm super jealous that you're visiting there right now!
    That's such a cute secret. Babykinis are adorable but dads/uncles/brothers playing with family are even more adorable!
