today i believe...

... that 1.11.11 is set to be one oh-so-lovely, oh-so-wonderful day.

... that the early morning, with all its rosy sunlight, carries the best kind of quiet.

... that a space becomes your own once it's filled with your most treasured books and artwork.

... that gorgeous office supplies can do wonders for your productivity.

... that nothing stills your mind and delights your heart quite like playing the piano.

... that there's something so charming and satisfying about a breakfast date.

... and that creating a niche for yourself--in your home and in your work and in the world--can give you the greatest sense of calm.

Oh, I adore this series :)
The third item in the list makes me think of this quote that I've kept to refer to time and again: "I may still not know what I want to be when I grow up, but I do know that someday I want to live in a house filled with my books and travel souvenirs. And the walls that aren't covered in bookshelves will be covered with photos of my family and friends. When I leave the house I will be going to a job I love, and I'll return to a person I love. So, that's the dream I'm working on." - Amber Morely

(And I love finding office supplies/stationary...thanks for sharing such a good resource! ;)
