I believe in…

sand between my toes and the sun on my shoulders

talking for hours about nothing and everything

the healing power of endorphins and the mental and physical benefits of a good workout

turning the radio up and singing along

clean sheet day on crisp, fabulous sheets

curling up with a good book and losing the day

wrapping my hands around a warm mug of coffee

messages “just because”


the hidden agenda of iTunes Shuffle

my daughters’ laughter

the way time with my friends restores me

not posting vague updates on social media

dangling my feet in a lake

inside jokes

big hugs

drinking water that is painfully cold

hooded sweatshirt, worn in jeans and Chucks

asking questions

finding answers

keeping some of the things in my head to myself

eating movie popcorn with MilkDuds

Sharpie markers

taking the time to be a good friend

taking the time to surround yourself with good friends

ordering pizza and kicking back on the couch

hiding behind my camera

laughing when I can

looking for hidden meaning in song lyrics

that everything that is good in my life trumps anything that is not

petting a dog is therapeutic

bookstores, coffee shops and kitchenware stores are the best places to get lost for a few hours


putting one foot in front of the other


[Edit: The thing about a list like this is that now, I want to come back and add to it already. Like! I forgot to say I believe in celebrating birthdays! And Crunchy Cheetos!]

  1. What a great list. I especially like – not posting vague updates and keeping some things inside your (my) head.
