today i believe...

... that being right is never as important as knowing why.

... that you should always, always hold the door open for somebody else--both literally and figuratively

... that cornbread is one of the best things to come out of America.

... that Elsie and Emma's brand new wedding blog, le wedding party, is already fabulous.

... that cooler weather can sometimes make for a clearer mind. 

... that there's something to be said for self-awareness, for recognizing the sort of person you are and being able to both accept it and allow room for improvement. 

... that kate middleton will make a seriously stunning princess.

... that it's a wonderful little surprise when you discover something new to love in a person you already adore. 

... that the pieces of ourselves we tend to hide are oftentimes the most beautiful.

... and that it's much more powerful to live your beliefs than it is to state them.
