The Craving

It’s that certain feeling. It is that burning and brewing deep in your belly for that… something. Sometimes it’s for a certain dish, a certain someone, an urge to be somewhere else, or simply that search for something amazing. 

You’re craving. 

Because really, no matter what the name may be: passion, drive, longing, wanderlust — it’s really all the same thing. You are aching for one of the many wonders that this life has to offer. Wonders and thrills come in many shapes and sizes, be it something simple like a new perfume that makes you feel fantastic, or a trip to someplace that makes your heart soar and your eyes fill with awe.

My name is Cara and as those around me know, my interests just range too widely to be put into one category. My heart and belly overflow with happiness after a good meal but my smile is just as wide for a great new gadget or learning a time-saving trick. My appetite for new experiences and new knowledge is, to put it lightly, insatiable, and this place is what I hope to use as a chronicle for the things I’ve found in life that make me happy and, hopefully, can give someone else a little bit of joy too. 

That burning in my belly is for everything between the awe-inspiring and the cheap thrills. I seek the memory-makers, destinations that seem picked out of one of our dreams, or daring activities that push our nerves to the limit but an all-expansive grin out of us in the end. I find comfort in the little joys like a great new product or a fancy new toy for my pup. I crave the things that make our eyes go wide, like a film or play that truly speaks to its audience. But I also crave the things that just make our day a little bit better, like a swanky new dress or a decadent dessert.

To put it simply, I crave the world.
