Grandpa Shirts, Grandma Smiles

I felt like I was literally swimming in this beast of a shirt, but its probably one of my favorites. Huge, comfy, 100%. I just all around diggs.

Tonight as I was walking home I walked past a lady and smiled and said "hello", and she replied with a kind smile and "hello" right back at me, and we kept going our ways. Sometimes I think its so weird that there are billions of people all over the place everyday that we walk by but we never know them. I wanted to know her life story. I wanted to know where she grew up and what her biggest life struggle has been, and how she has over-come it. I wanted to know if she had children or if she was married, but we are limited. It seems wild to just go up to someone and ask these questions, but I always want to. Does anyone ever think like this? Sometimes I just so badly want to shake every single persons hand and ask them what their favorite food is, or how they like their coffee. Its a weird world we live in, folks.

  1. Great story - I appreciate clothes & jewelery so much more when it comes from a family member.

  3. I often ponder that too! You see so many interesting people as you go through your day, you can't help but wonder what the heck they do with themselves! ...Sometimes I just make it up in my head.
    PS: loving the baggy tee +tights combo.

  5. Oversized shirts are win! We can be very self-involved (even me, admittedly), it's great to remember that there are billions of other people out there. But this blog enables you to do just that, doesn't it? A giant figurative hand out to shake everyone else's. Hello, I really like apples and gyros (not together), and I don't really drink coffee. I like coffee-flavored ice cream, though. :) How about you?

  7. I am just like that. When Gavin and I go to the city and sit on benches and watch people walk by...I always wonder what their story is, and I'm genuinely interested if they ever do share. It's a good thing to be curious :]

  9. Man Kate, I thought I was the only one wishing I could just know everyone. I'm never bold enough to just ask people about themselves, but I want to. It's crazy that there are so many of us. Doesn't it always feel so strange when you walk by someone and don't really talk? Only "hello" feels odd. I wonder if they need a friend. Or if they'd be a good friend for me. Sometimes people are dying to have someone to talk to, and I could listen. You know? I just want to be real with people, and let them be real with me, and not worry. "All you need is love".....know what I mean?

  10. I think the same as you, sometimes I'm really curious and I want to know everything about a stranger .. it's interesting to know how other people live their lives :)

  11. I do the exact same thing, and I wonder how different my life would be if I had stopped to talk to people, like if we were to end up being best friends or getting married! You never know! I love your tights.

  13. As I read this I couldn't help but smile. I experience the exact same thoughts every day! It always happens when I'm on the bus going across campus or around town. I always wonder about the people sitting next to me, around me...I want to make conversation and really talk to them, but they would think I was crazy! It's amazing how different everyone's life stories are; I wish occasionally a random person would share theirs with me. I love that you think about these simple things, I seriously look forward to reading your blog every time you write a new post <3

  16. oh i LOVE this! it looks so so so comfy... and you can totally pull it off! and oh goodness, yes... i think about this all the time - in fact, i was just discussing this with a friend not too long ago. i always wonder about people i pass on the street, in the grocery store, at disneyland... where do they come from? who are they? what are their families like? what type of personality do they have? i wish i could get to know them, even if only for a few moments.

  17. yes, i often wonder the same thing about people, thats why i love reading auto/biographies & when i studied history i always found the story of an individual person fascinating (as opposed to a nation, say).

    i loooove your tights, i might have to try something similar with my new boots!
