Day 2- Memoirs

It's day 2 of the 15 day challenge. I'm impressed I've made it two days.  
I've loved reading other people's stuff so hopefully you're enjoying reading mine. 
The prompt- write one or a few six-word memoirs. 
Here's the back story of this one. And I think it's beautiful.
"Six word memoirs are exactly how it sounds: your life in six words. The history behind it is that Ernest Hemingway was asked to write a complete short story in as few words as possible. His response was, 'For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.' This then errupted into a way to tell sad, sweet, honest tales. Some examples from the book Not Quite What I Was Planning: 

'The miserable childhood leads to royalties.' -Frank McCourt
'I've done it all except hear.' -Mrlee Matlin
Here's a few that I think are diverse but are who I am and where I'm at. I hope they express both the uncertainty of things but also the beauty of life.  
Future is unclear, but beautiful anyway.
Latte in hand, life is better.
On my way to something wonderful.


  1. Those are great memoirs. Love the one about: Latte in hand, life is better. I can relate there. Great Job on making it to day two.

  2. That's a great one about the future! Great attitude about it!

  3. Future is unclear... I love this one.
    Such a good perspective to have. Life would be boring if we knew what was going to happen, right? :)

  4. I think the one about the future is brilliant. I think it's a great way to think about things and it puts a great perspective on the future :)

    Good luck with the challenge!

  5. "Latte in hand, life is better." UM, YES. A latte love! <3
