Fill in the Blank Friday

I seriously look forward to filling in Lauren's blanks every week! I highly recommend jumping on this bandwagon ASAP, folks.
Happy Friday, loves!

1. My favorite quote is "once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit." ee cummings. This is just one of many, many, many quotes that I love.

2. A bad habit I have is eavesdropping! I love listening to other people's conversations, but I am not always too stealthy about it. Sometimes I get really into what they're saying and I end up blatantly staring, or completely ignoring whoever I'm with.

3. The first time I felt like a "grown up" was when I bought my dining room table. Just about everything else in my apartment is a hand-me-down of some sort, or was purchased by my parents, but not my table.

4. Weekends are either crammed full of things I didn't have time to do during the week or they're nice and leisurely and full of coffee and pjs. No matter which end of the spectrum my weekend falls in, they always involve a heavy dose of "me time". I love weekends!

5. When I was a child I wished my name was Aeryn. Haha, yep, I didn't mind my name, but I wanted it spelled differently. I even went through a phase in high school where I spelled my name like that and my teachers just went with it. Oh, and I also went through a phase where I wanted to go by my name from German class, Amelie. I still think it's beautiful.

6. I wish I could work 4 10's instead of 5 8's. I love three day weekends and find myself putting in more than 8 hours most days anyway, so why not make the most of it?

7. A secret I have is that when pouring myself a glass of wine I choose which wine glass to use according to the little charm I have on it. The charms are of travel landmarks in London, NYC, Paris and Rome, and when picking my glass, I think of where I would love to be enjoying a glass of wine in that moment. Last night was Rome...the Coloseum to be exact.


  1. Haha, I have never seen the name spelt Aeryn. But, my friend suggested the name Amelie to me for a baby’s name !! I am all for 4 10’s as well!

  2. i love reading your answers to these posts. you sound like an amazing, beautiful soul! (most erin's are ;); i am a complete eavesdropper, as well. i swear i could win an olympic gold medal for people watching! i also used to spell my name differently...airin.
