... that sleeping in on Saturday mornings is good for the soul.
... that homemade peach pie on a warm, sunny afternoon is also good for the soul. Bonus points for adding a giant spoonful of extra-sweet, homemade whipped cream.
... that purging half the contents of your closet will instantly, magically lift a million weights from your shoulders — and that a closet filled with only the things you actually love is quite possibly the most incredible thing in the whole entire world. A wearable closet? What a novel idea.
... that sleeping through your alarm on a Monday-ish Tuesday is totally acceptable.
... that the recipe for calm can be rather simple: open windows, a cool breeze, a book, some sun, and a big, cozy robe so soft and plush that wearing it makes you feel like a polar bear.
... that a lived-in, super-soft chambray shirt always wins. Thank you, Madewell.
... that nothing beats a well-curated bookshelf lined with all the authors and trinkets and keepsakes that help to define you. Except maybe a well-stocked bar cart. Some days, it's a draw.
... that everyone needs a friend who's just a bit too much, because too much is sometimes just enough.
