Sweet Potato Burger

I want to be more earthy.

Well, I want to wear less makeup, more flowy dresses and lots of costume jewelry, if that counts.

Earthy people have achieved an inner zen that I admire. They just seem content to me. They are at peace with their messy buns. I want that.

So I’m trying this out, right? I take a shower, let my hair dry naturally & head over to the Starbucks to do some work. My dad meets me & is all, “Why have you been crying?” I’m like, “Umm I’m not I just don’t have any makeup on.” He says, “No, you definitely look like you’ve been crying.” *Face palms* I explain that I’m trying to be more one with the earth because earthy people have zen. He said, “You think too much and need to wear makeup in public.”

    You’re a riot! And your dad’s pretty funny too! My husband always jokingly says I should put makeup on before going out so I don’t “scare the masses”…LOL 🙂
