today i believe...

... that you know you're growing up when you're at a party and find yourself commenting on the decor.

... that laundry is the best chore, and dishes are the worst.

... that there's nothing quite so invigorating as really smart, thoughtful conversation.

... that fresh sugar lemon eau de parfum is springtime perfection.

... that vacation itself is wonderfully energizing, but the week after vacation can be, well, nothing short of total chaos.

... that it's important to keep some secrets to yourself.

... that the kate spade wedding collection is the very definition of swoon-worthy.

... that a long afternoon walk with a friend--especially in the sunshine--is the best way to refresh.

... that self-awareness is one of the finest qualities a person can have.

... that you can't always give your all, and sometimes "just enough" really is enough.

... and that sometimes, you just have to choose, acknowledging and accepting that you'll eventually, either way, be forced to look back and wonder if what you did was right.

I 100% agree about laundry being the best chore and dishes being the worst. That's probably why I cook so often- to avoid the dishes.

Yes, great thoughts! But I have to differ about the laundry and dishes~ with 5 kids, it's the opposite for me!!
Have a beautiful, thoughtful day, LM!

I agree with the laundry being the best chore! Sometimes when I hear people say 'I hate doing laundry' I think, 'Why? It's so easy!' And dishes...not so fun. I particularly hate it if I have to do someone ELSE'S dishes....
I agree with the first thing you said too. I notice decor a lot more! Maybe it's because of all these blogs I read....But maybe your mind just grows up?...

I realized I was growing up when I woke up after a fresh snowfall, and none of my roommates had drawn wieners all over my car.

I love this series so much, as I've told you before in the past. :) The last one especially speaks to me right now! I hate decision making as well. :(
