On the fridge

March 27, 2011

I like looking at people’s refrigerators. Not in their refrigerators — on their refrigerators. I mean, I suppose it’s interesting that they have gourmet salsa and leftover, half-eaten Chipotle burritos in there, but what’s more interesting is what they place under the magnets. Or even the magnets themselves. I’ve found that you can learn a lot about the little idiosyncrasies of a person based on the sole contents of the front of their fridge. Or, it’s at least a good way to hear fun stories.

For instance:

I got this fortune at Pei Wei on the day we found out I was pregnant with my first-born.



And two years later, he made me this artwork.



I inherited this magnet from my parents when I got my first apartment.



And years later, I wrote this when our sweet Katherine Grace was born.



We have words of inspiration.



And images of contemplation.



Baby announcements and birthday invites.


And the smiling faces of family members.



So when I go to the fridge to feed my belly, I feed my soul a little, too.

    We had that same Churchill quote on our fridge in college. But our fridge today is covered in 10-year-old pictures of husband’s family. It’s on my to-do list!

    The front of our fridge isn’t magnetic. Stupid stainless steel!
