this girl's birthday was the same day that fireworks go off EVERYWHERE. 

lucky her.

mary is a new friend, but one whom you feel as if you have known for a life time. 
immediate kindred spirits. 
i had the privilege to meet this pretty lady about two months ago, through Cara, and it has been such a joy to to know her.

 bless your sweet, sweet soul. i love you so very much and am so happy to call you one of my dearest friends after only a short time. you have been such an encouragement to me. i am thankful for you!

this lady's birthday was almost a month ago and i have yet to write anything about it. 

so here we are. 

cara is one of my very very very best friends. she is one whom i go to to vent about things, she always has good advice, and she just generally understands me. we share a love of all things the office and parks and rec, oldies music, and having weird dance parties after 10pm. also, and something SO IMPORTANT in friendships: SHE LAUGHS AT MY JOKES. 
she thinks i'm funny, i think she's funny, it's a win-win.

Cara, you're so wonderful. thank you for being one of my oldest and dearest friends. i know we have talked about how blessed, grateful, and how much we love the friendships God has given us recently, but i have to say it again: I AM SO VERY THANKFUL FOR YOU. 

also i'm sorry your birthday post is so dang late. 
my bad.

luh you girl.

it's july.
it's the middle of july. 
this month is already almost over.
this year is already over halfway over.

it's also been over two months since my last blog post. but this is not a new thing, nor something to raise any concern. i've been seeing weird patterns in my blogging, despite the fact that even when i "regularly post" (regular for me is still sporadic, let's be honest.), it's not consistent.

here's confession time:

i'll probably never be as consistent as i want to be. 
i'm not the most consistent person in real life, 
so why be so on the inter-webs.

there. i said it.


i think i allowed myself to worry that i had to fit in a certain "blogging mold" for this whole thing to work. but if you have followed me long enough, you know good and well that isn't a thing here...but blogging is a form of expression. so it really shouldn't matter how one goes about it, regular or scattered. keep in mind that if you have the dream to blog as a part of your livelihood, inconsistency is not going to work.

but that is not a thing here at Everybody Behave Naturally. that wouldn't be natural behavior for me. inconsistency here is a thing and it's something that we will have to deal with.

so now that that's out there.......

nice weather we've been having, no?
