irresponsible things i looove to do:

lay in bed for half in hour after i wake up.
never capitolize anything on my blog.
eat cake for breakfast.
procrastinate on papers.
pretend i'm epileptic.
leave the dishes in the sink.
let my phone die on purpose.
talk back to sales people.
skip shower days.

Did I say that she was beautiful? I was wrong. Beauty is too tame a notion; it evokes only faces in magazines. A lovely eloquence, a calming symmetry; none of that describes this woman’s face. So perhaps I should assume I cannot do it justice with words. Suffice it to say that it would break your heart to see her; and it would mend what was broken in the same moment; and you would be twice what you’d been before

Ode to summer.

i remember the first day it felt like summer this year.
i wore my dress. and barefeet.
i sat on my front stoop and smiled as i closed my eyes and felt the warm sunshine come down on my face. it was like discovering something all over again. something id forgotten.[it was like i was the first person on earth to discover microwave popcorn.]

but behold,
it was just sunshine.

i miss summer.

now october is here. sweet sweet october.
lets go make memories.

falling all over us

 There are days I drop words of comfort on myself like falling leaves and remember that it is enough to be taken care of by myself. 
-Brian Andreas

Life was beautiful when i woke up this morning.
partly because the world is changing colours. brava brava!
fall deserves a standing ovation. today and tomorrow and the next day...etc. 

love, mandy.

Be Good To You
Be yourself, truthfully
Accept yourself, gratefully
Value yourself, joyfully
Forgive yourself, completely
Treat yourself, generously
Balance yourself, harmoniously
Bless yourself, abundantly
Trust yourself, wholeheartedly
Empower yourself, prayerfully
Give yourself, enthusiastically
Express yourself, radiantly
-Tracey Steffy
