So I've been tagged by Echloe who is someone I ran into on the internet and quickly discovered lives within a short drive of me. Though we have yet to meet face to face, I feel as though I know her based on our correspondence back and forth. I also know she's a knitter, but haven't seen any visual proof of said knitting ;)

So for this game of tag I have to write a six word memoir... a Meme. To quote Echloe's blog "The Meme originated over an idea that was prompted by the book written by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I was planning: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure. It's a compilation based on the story that Hemingway once bet $10 that he could sum up his life in six words. His were- For Sale: baby shoes, never worn."

So, hmm...Here goes nothin!

Happy goes along with lucky sometimes.

My explanation will be a long string of rambling sentences. Then again, if you read this blog often enough, that shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. I'm known by many as "the optimistic one". I have friends that will proceed with caution when bringing me bad news as I will most often tell them "Everything happens for a reason". At times, it's difficult to hear, but it's really a philosophy I try to live by. That, and live life with no regrets, but that's an entirely different blog entry. In any case, I'm a relatively happy optimist. I also consider myself to be somewhat lucky, in a number of situations with my life. I've lived a relatively trouble-free life, and I feel blessed to have all I do at this point in my life. I've never felt 'deprived' or 'starved' or anything less than fulfilled, and I know that's a lucky situation, as not everyone has had the same experiences. All of that, and I wanted to do a play on the phrase 'happy go lucky'.

Now, I've been instructed to tag others... Here are my 5 :)
