Refridgerator Art

This post is totally random. 

I'm sitting here at the bar in my kitchen, playing on my computer and I look up at my fridge.  Secretly I'm wondering, Is there anything sweet in there?  Might I have left some ice cream or chocolate in the freezer??? ....but something catches my eye instead.  It's the picture my nephew drew for K.  I stare at it for a long time and I feel myself just smile bigger and bigger the longer I look at it.  Finally, I get up and walk to my fridge and just really start to look at each and everything thing on it....

....I feel happy.  Not just because it's Friday and there's red wine here, but because I refridgerator is full of love.  I'll be the first to admit that I am a packrat....I save cards and invitations and sweet notes and really random stuff.  Most of it ends up on my fridge at one point or another, and when newer things replace them, they go right in the drawer next to my fridge, not in the garbage.  I walk to this thing countless times a day and very rarely stop to notice the decorations that I have hung on it.  WHY???

Thinking on it now, I wonder why I don't take a moment daily to be thankful for the things and the people in the pictures on it.  Some are family, some are friends, some are acquaintences, and some are people who have moved out of my life completely.  At this moment, there are Christmas cards, birth announcements, wedding invitations, pet photos, family photos, photos of the boy, photos of friends, and maybe a coupon for Papa John's pizza (lol)....see for yourself!

What's on your fridge????

Hahaha yes this was random, but I also loved it because it totally gives us an idea of the inside life of Taryn. What's on my fridge? A piece of paper on what can and can't be recycled. We just started a new recycling program in our town, so it's a lot more things that can be recycled now. We don't have a magnetic fridge, so it doesn't leave many options for other things...
