... that walking through the quiet, charming streets of your hometown on a warm Summer night can bring you back in time like nothing else.
... that you should embrace the sorts of challenges that energize and inspire you.
... that watermelon and feta is a magical Summer combination.
... that May marks the season of popsicles and weekend road trips, of picnics and long, you'll-never-get-to-them-all reading lists — of hope and romance and days that stretch forever.
... that you can just never have too many small notebooks.
... that there's something to be said for the lifelong friendships, for the nearly-family people in your life who listen and care and connect the dots without you saying a single word.
... that the easiest way to find clarity is to travel by yourself, even if it's just across town.
... and that love, more than anything else, can surprise you.
