What element are you?
In a recent post, Ally included the above graphic at the beginning of her post. Are these traits consistent with your personality?
Then, in Ally’s comment section, someone mentioned their blog being an Earth sign. I’d never considered my blog having a sign before. So I thought about the month my blog debuted (June), which would make it an air sign. Powerful, creative, fun, has ideas, adventurous, and exciting? Ooh! I love that.
So I thought about the month we moved into our house, July. This would give our home a water sign. Refreshing, charming, mysterious, private, sensitive, and emotional. All wonderful words to describe the place we call home.
What are your signs?

When flowers bloom, I pick them
