Funky Town

I’m feeling funk-y today.

Not the kind of funky that makes you want to tap your toes and shake your tail feather.

Nor the kind that means you are emanating foul odors (though, now that I think about it, I did glance over the whole “bathing” thing this morning… oops)

I mean the “mean reds,” as Holly Golightly would call them. The type of funk where you are just confused and a little off. Does that ever happen to you? Maybe it’s the start of the new year or the fact that we have some very interesting changes coming up in the next few months.

Most of it has to do with what to do with my life. And my job. And finding what it is that makes me happy (other than the obvious things, like my beliefs and my rad husband).

To get out of the funk and take on this quarter-life crisis, I thought of some outrageous, and not necessarily realistic, hobbies/occupations to add to my bucket list:

-Fulfilling my Kindergarten dreams of doing archaeology

-Having goats and learning how to make delicious cheese from their milk. I’m obsessed.

-Sushi chef… Jordan would be pleased

-Antique dealer/expert

-Gardening virtuoso

-Seamstress extraordinaire

-Starting a restaurant

-One word: Beekeeping. A second word: AWESOME. Amiright!?

Days like these make me grateful for dreams and ambition. And a Heavenly Father who has instilled in us urges to create and succeed.

Here’s to the new year and all of the things that we can accomplish in it! Even if we are being a grumpy downer at the moment 🙂



  1. Three comments:1. Maybe our special cheese recipe can assist you with the goat cheese…2. The restaurant must be called Majerle's, pronounced ma-hair-les3. My dad used to keep bees. Ask him for tips :)Good luck!

  2. This is why I love you and already miss you 😦 I have to say I love your ambitions and I feel ya on the funky town. When you say you want to own a goat all that comes to mind is the man goat on youtube. I will support all your endeavors especially to be an antique dealer – #1 customer!! P.S this is the first time I've commented on a blog for reals
