If I Were...

I’ve seen so many people do this and thought, wow what a great idea. This will be a cute, quick post to do mid-week. Wow – was a I wrong!! As always, I overthought my answers and it has taken me forever to determine what I would be and why. Agh…the complexities of my inner workings!!! Hope you enjoy!!!

If I were a month, I’d be June. I’m a summer girl – I was a June bride.


If I were a day of the week, I’d be Sunday. Church with the family in the morning, because faith and family are pivotal to who I am.

If I were a time of day, I’d be happy hour. Not necessarily for the boozing – but because of the excitement in knowing your off the clock and time is yours to enjoy as you please.

I were a planet, I’d be Earth. It's the only place that's livable!

If I were a sea animal, I’d be a sea turtle. Steady, wise and long lasting.

If I were a direction, I’d be south. No matter where I may go, I’m always drawn back to the South, my home.

If I were a piece of furniture, I’d be a dining room table. Gather friends and family around me, share your secrets, tell your sad stories, I’m here to listen.

If I were a liquid, I’d be water. Nourishing, accessible to anyone, fresh.

If I were a tree, I’d be the Dogwood. A perfect tribute to the Southern way of life.

If I were a tool, I’d be a level. I enjoy helping others determine if their lives are straight.

If I were a kind of weather, I’d be the respite just before a storm. Often beautiful, ever changing, and hard to predict.

If I were a musical instrument, I’d be a piano. If played correctly, beautiful and inspirational. But hit a wrong key and I can be ear piercing and harsh.

If I were a color, I’d be hot pink. Bright, confident and sometimes out of place.

If I were an emotion, I’d be awe. Consistently struck with gratitude and inspired by the people who surround me.

If I were a fruit, I’d be a strawberries. Great in any situation. Spruce me up and cover me in Godiva chocolate. Keep it simple as strawberry shortcake – I’m comfortable in many situations.

If I were a flower, I’d be a pink gerber daisy. Simple, tasteful and cheerful.

If I were a sound, I’d be a sigh. Sometime a sign of contentment, others a sign of frustration. Many meanings – difficult to interpret.

If I were an element, I’d be gold. Valuable, moldable, rare.

If I were a car, I’d be my American made Chevy Malibu, LTZ. Classy and stylish like a foreign model, but a little more practical and affordable – sticking to where I come from.

If I were a food, I’d be potatoes. Inexpensive with multiple uses – always yummy!

If I were a gemstone, I’d be a blue sapphire. The stone of loyalty and fidelity - two traits I hold in high regard.
If I were a material, I’d be cotton. Dependable, comfortable, inexpensive.

If I were a taste, I’d be savory. Complex, satisfying, bold.

If I were a place, I’d be the beach. Inviting and enjoyable.

If I were a scent, I’d be the smell of dust from a peanut field after it has rained – exotic in it’s own way and something very few people truly appreciate.

If I were a body part, I’d be the eyes. Take it all in, constantly looking and inquiring, never settled.
If I were an object, I’d be an old school planner. Organized, well planned and constantly filled with way too many appointments!

If I were a facial expression, I’d be a smirk. Sarcastic, challenging, sometimes irritating.

If I were a song, I’d be She’s Everything by Brad Paisley.

If I were a pair of shoes, I’d be a pair open toed three inch wedges. A little more practical than stilettos, but still trendy and fun.

What would you be, if you were????
