Renew, revive…..and football

When most people who know me find out how much I love football they don’t think it matches what they see….which brings me to a brief (as brief as I can be) “what’s the mold of loving football?” This actually will be brief…because all I can think of are cliches of dudes with writing on their bellies, beer drinkers and cheerleaders. Ok maybe my cliches are stuck in high school. I’m a woman who definitely follows the moon cycle intently, collects gems and makes lego dragons. I’m sober, introverted, single with a cat I worship, political nerd, lover of all things comedy. I fluctuate between goth and bohemian…occasionally look like a walking Gap commercial. I get wrapped up in Grey’s Anatomy and watch the movie Love Actually on repeat at times. I’m not even slightly athletic, only did sports as a kid for the Gatorade on the sidelines. I’m an artist of many mediums…though lately my brain has needed a break with simple coloring. I’m a florist and talk/sing to plants (they’re alive y’all!! They feel vibration and at least I believe appreciate names). I love my car, she too appreciates a name and I tell her I love her every time I walk away. I have horrible interpersonal skills with adults that I’m working on but see eye to eye with animals and kids. I still laugh thinking about rollerblading-it was just such a funny thing I was beyond excited about as a kid. Those black blades with fluorescent yellow wheels? Please-they were incredible ego boosters. So I encapsulate all that and other quirks….and I LOVE football. I enjoy college more than NFL but still-Sunday’s and Thursday’s are so wonderful in this glorious time. The cover picture is what Johnny looks like in football season-I think it’s pretty clear she’s ambivalent.


  1. ASHLEY, it’s grand to be introduced by KS to your beautiful self. What a fun introspective post. Will look fwd to more of your creative self. Wishing you a particularly good week.

    • Thank you so much!! You guys are so kind, in addition to having football on right now your comments are making my day! Mom has had such a needed fun loving break with you guys and I’m grateful she has such dear friends who love her so much. We’ll definitely take care of each other and have some fun doing it I imagine too 🙂
