Finally, I can do Writer's Workshop....

Interview is over....claming down now....Won't find out until next week if I make the cut for the 2nd interview - which really counts for getting the job!

Now I can take some time to write to MamaKat's writing prompt:

For some crazy reason, I think I tend to choose number 3 the most when I write these prompts. I wonder why that is? Lucky number? I always thought my lucky number was seven. Huh? Something to think about.

3.) Describe a memorable gift. Why was it important to you?

I received a journal from my boyfriend, at the time, a few years ago. He had gone to Europe with some buddies for the summer and had picked up a journal from Florence, Italy. He had saved it for my birthday. It was so sweet. He had whipped the present out of his bag one evening and lay it on my chest. I was taken aback, but when I saw it was a leather bound journal I was completely touched. He knew I wrote in a journal often. He had been thinking about me during his summer was just so sweet.

I didn't start writing in it right away as I had more of my previous journal to fill in. When I did start writing in it - as I still am doing to this day - I think back to that evening and smile! It's a good reminder of a great gift and a wonderful gesture from a great guy! I still love that guy....can't wait to get back to the states and see him again!

I love gifts that come to you from someone who took the time to think about what it is that you like and know about who you are. A journal was just the most appropriate gift to give me....I simply love it!


  1. I agree. Getting a thoughtful gift (big or small) is a great way to take you back and remind you of that time.

    The journal sounds beautiful. Glad you are still enjoying it to this day.

    Happy Thursday!

  2. And seriously, coming from a guy that says a lot. Sometimes I think it's harder for males to be that thoughtful.

    ...or maybe it's just MY male! :)

  3. I always thought people that wrote in journals were very cool. I love that : ). It sounds very special.
