There’s this hashtag on Instagram #fridayintroductions where people share their answer from the question these two gals (1 & 2) put out there for you to answer. I feel like it’s a cool way to get to know people through this connective vice we call the internet and I wanted to join in … but over here on the blog! I may or may not answer their specific questions that they ask on any given Friday. But will introduce myself in some way, certain weeks.
What would make the process all the more fun (and more relational!) is if you would ALSO answer the question – either in the comments or in a post of your own. I look forward to hearing and learning about you all more too!
As it’s early in the morning and those lovely ladies have not yet put their weekly question out there, I have decided to create my own:
What is something you collected or are still collecting?
As a young girl, I have collected books of many varieties. When I was the 8 year old Sarah, I bought Janette Oke books and Archie comics. As a 12-15 year old Sarah, I collected Nancy Drew (original or early editions only) mysteries. In my 20s, travel books, music books, and resource books. And my current collection(s) consist of Kinfolk magazines, recipe books, and children’s books(!).
As I was thrifting the other day, I came across this old mystery – much like an old Nancy Drew. For a $1.50 I could not leave it behind. It stirred up huge nostalgia as I sat and read half of it during the boys’ naps yesterday afternoon. There’s just something about an old book …
And total side note, since when has it been warm enough in Calgary, Canada to be able to sit outside, barefoot, coat-less, snow-less, looking at green grass in November?! I think never.
