Well, here I am. It is currently, wow, 1:14am and I am lying under my covers sporting an old over-sized t-shirt and glasses. This is my first blog post. I can't tell you how long it has taken me to get to this point. I have spent a lot of time telling myself I should start a blog, and not actually doing it. I do that with a lot of things, unfortunately. However, in some random spur of the moment inspiration, I set up this website and finally told myself to get over it. I get those moments sometimes. I wish they would come more often because I sure got a lot of things done in one night.
My name is Kenzie and I live in Canada. No, it doesn't snow here 24/7, though I wish it did. I am one of the weird ones that love the cold seasons. It kind of makes sense because I love the feeling of being cozy. I associate cozy with warm sweaters, big hot cups of tea, thick socks that nearly touch your knee, and steaming bowls of soup. You'll probably hear a lot more on that in future posts if you decide to stay.
So, why did I create this website? Well, you can read the About page, but I'll go more into it here. I'm one of those people that have thoughts swirling around in her head all the time. I know this is not uncommon, a lot of us have this. However, I am a lover of telling stories. These stories are created through the interlacing of thoughts and experiences throughout my life. They are things I've most likely kept inside my head, or on the rare occasion, shared with a friend or family member. So, the most obvious thing to do now is sharing all that on the internet for everyone to see...right?
When I say the word "stories" I don't mean fictional narratives, though I do fancy those. I am talking about the events that transpire in life, the momentary thoughts had during the day, daydreams, things that are cherished, and things that bring comfort. I want this to be a place where I share these things with anyone who wants to listen. I find that the world can be very stressful. Everywhere we turn there's another negative story. Of course, these stories are important and need to be told, but I need something else too. I want to create a collection of those fleeting moments in our lives that bring a slight curve to our lips when we think about them. I'd like to call it a personal smile. A smile that isn't happening because of outside influence, but one that generates from within. I hope I can create that feeling for you with this site.
If there are any of you out there reading this right now, welcome. Though I would probably be fine rambling to open air, it's a lot more fun with other people. I can't wait to share more.
Kenzie is a woman from Canada that likes to share things that bring joy and peace into her life. She has some pretty random and sometimes "out-there" interests that you'll probably find out about the more she posts. She loves listening to stories just as much as telling them and has a weird obsession with the fall and winter seasons.
