That little number just happened to be a knit DRESS. Yes, feathers and triangles and other random geometric designs. I think the 80s spilled over into the early 90s just a bit and spilled all over my outfit for 7th grade picture day.

I can trace my first trypophobia incident back to an old email meme that hit my inbox in 2001. It was of a supposed breast infection that was really just someone photoshopping a dried lotus seed pod onto someones skin. Shudder. I had such a visceral reaction to it, even knowing the photo was fake, and I can hardly even stand to think about that picture. Wendy of course found the link to the actual phobia for me.

I will admit that I am one of the few people on earth who has not seen all of the Harry Potter movies. I think I saw 1,2, and 5. :)

You're so sweet, thank you! Oh, and Frozen is a fun one, even for big kids (like us, haha).

So well said! "It's that crappy land between leaning in and letting go..." Great comment.

WOW, Cathy. So beautiful. I LOVE this part: "It's one thing to cling to that idea, an idea that the internet loves, and that is the idea of I am enough. But when you find out that you actually aren't in the ways the matter the very most, change is not only possible, it is required." I was so touched by this post. And I know it sounds weird, but I found myself feeling PROUD of you. Like, way to GO Cathy! Way to open up and be real. Way to give other people permission to acknowledge their own imperfections. We all do paint ourselves in the very best light publicly on the Internet, and none of us are. This was so important and honest. Go you.

Very true! I am rarely this succinct when speaking.
Haha! Best comment ever. After the stories Ive heard from you, I dont expect much sympathy about a little old Almond Joy. :)

Thanks for this perspective, Monika! I think Ill rename my fear of decorating commitment as patience, and then Ill see it as more of a virtue. ;) And I definitely look like a hobo while working on any and all outdoor home projects, too!

You are down to earth for sure, my friend, but you do everything in your life with such care, purpose, and intention (including your lovely memory-infused decorating), and while Im not exactly intimated by you anymore, these are qualities I wish I had in greater abundance! ;)
