40 Things I Know to Love

In the past forty years I have learned and loved and ached and yearned and cracked and have pieced myself together again and again. And I have so much to still to learn. But here is what I know right now to be true, to see the gratitude in the every single day.

If you keep seeking beauty, I promise you will find it. Here are forty things that I am currently in love with and I just need to never lose sight of all that I am already so damn lucky to have, to hold and to see. 

1. Hand written letters. 

2. When girlfriends open up to each other when they know they are in a safe place. 

3. Brightly colored pens and new journals. 

4. When a child laughs so hard that they can barely catch their breath. 

5. Evenings at bookstores. 

6. Peonies.
