The day I realized I have never done an intro post

(yup, I chopped my hair off)

This week I realized in the nearly year and half this blog has been around I have never done an intro post. I know exactly why, too. While I can write about just about anything, the exception is when it comes to writing about myself. Well, that's changing now. Plus, with all of the new readers 'round these parts, I think it's time I say "hey!"

Obviously from the title of this blog, my name is Arielle.
I have no nicknames but I'm often asked "oh, like the mermaid?!" Original, right? ;-)
I thought instagram was dumb until I signed up and became addicted.
By day, I'm a mental health therapist.
I'll probably do 10 other careers because I'm interested in so many things.
I'm a work in progress and I don't have all of the answers.
I love reading self-help books. 
I think you need to read Spirit Junkie.
My husband and I have a hobby of eating. 
I keep telling myself that I need to be more "social" but the couch always wins.
A cup of coffee each morning makes me happy.
My husband and I like to kayak. One time he fell in. I laughed.
Speaking of laughing, it's pretty much my favorite thing
When I need a good laugh I look up YouTube videos or go to the humor board on Pinterest.
Music, writing and painting are an escape for me.
I meditate almost daily.
I put myself on a spending ban at Ulta.
On the weekends, I wear pajamas most of the day.
I wish I had a home with a vegetable garden and chickens.
Some blogs I'm LOVING right now: Living in Yellow, Hello, Gorgeous! and I Wore Yoga Pants to Work.
Please, tell me about YOU! It brings me joy to get to know readers and fellow bloggers!
