It's Just Who I Am

Have you ever wondered why some people are the way that they are?

Like, for instance: I am very old-fashioned in pretty much ALL ways. I cook, I clean, I sew, I craft, I crochet, and I believe in staying home with your kids if at all possible.

I try not to judge if you're not like me, but I am pretty much an odd-man out anymore.

This photo pretty much digs head-first into why I am the way that I am. And while it doesn't tell one exact story (well, it does, but I'm not going to tell it right now) it does say a lot about me.

I spent the majority of my childhood with old ladies.

Seriously. I fit right in too. I went on ladies retreats, volunteered at the nursing homes, was taught all there is to know about menopause, how to cook, make candies, and pray.

I enjoyed it and I still would, if I still had that opportunity.

It wasn't until I was in high school that I was part of a youth group, with, ya know...youth.

Love these guys! 

But I still never quite fit in the way that I did with the older bunch. It's shaped who I am today, many of my beliefs and way of life.

I still go once a week and visit my grandmother, and I often connect with her and can talk with her in a way that I have trouble with with others my age.

It's just who I am; and this picture explains it all.


Now go link up with The Girl Between the Lines link-up. The prompt this week is:  Share a photo & the story behind it!

  1. Besides the crafty part, this is the way I am too. I always describe myself as old-fashioned and I often connect with older folks better than I do with folks my own age.

    Keep being who you are...awesome!

    1. Jeremy and I constantly struggle with finding friends, and I tell him it's that we're too old-fashioned too. I think if we looked for friend who were at least 10 years older, we'd do alright. Haha.

  2. I can relate to this so much! :) I know who you are an amazing person! :)

  3. I totally feel you! I frequently feel like an eighty year old even though I'm only twenty five, ha ha.

  5. Aww!! I can definitely see how you were influenced by the elderly company you kept! And in many ways I'm rather old-fashioned too--that intrigued my husband when we first met because I was the first girl he'd ever known who appreciated chivalry and didn't want to be an independent career woman.

    1. I have to say, as old-fashioned as I may be, I am a pretty independent woman - although a career is the last thing I want! Haha. Thanks for reading and commenting!

  6. Aw, I love this! I'm old fashioned, too. And I'd love to stay at home with our kids one day, too. When we have them, that is;) thanks for sharing this sweet post! Love the glimpse into why you're you! :)


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
