things, the importance of which, cannot be overstated.

Posted: June 3, 2014 by Rachel

the perfect shade of nail polish for summer.

offering everyone a drink when you get up to get one for yourself.

saying please and thank you.

random acts of kindness.

sincerity and compassion.

a hot cup of coffee first thing in the morning.

a beautiful sunset.

getting out of your home town, beach bound.

freshly changed bed sheets.

surprise coffee delivered from a friend or loved one.

cleaning up after yourself in the kitchen.

holding doors open for the elderly.

a good book.

blue skies.

toothy grins.

*i have to credit meg for the idea and title behind this post. 
i had all these thoughts in my head, unsure of how they all fit together, 
and then i read her post, and a light bulb went off over my head. 
thank you meg, for the constant inspiration.

    I love this idea…totally copying it.. And also – ice cold beer, brand new notebooks, and organized day planners. Amazingness.
