Summer Believes

Today's list is from Summer, who I know from high school
She was a senior when I was a freshman and I was friends with her little sister, Winter. 

She used to drive us around in her convertible cabriolet {am I right on the car make?} and I used to feel so cool being driven around by a senior. :) 

Know she has four adorable children and a very crafty fun blog. 


I believe a day begun with bacon and/or coffee is a better day

I believe taking out the trash is a man's job.

I believe something you made yourself is better than something else, unless that something else was made by someone who loves you.

I believe everyone has a gift to give, and when you are able to see the value of everyone's gift you love a little more deeply.

I believe my husband is my better half, but sometimes that's not saying much, and sometimes it's more than he deserves, but usually it's exactly right, and that's why we make a good pair.

I believe I never understood how God loved me until I held my own child.

I believe in watching cartoons on Saturday morning in bed.

I believe children can do more than you think, perceive more than you'd like, and forgive more than you deserve.

I believe laughter, chocolate, wine, and a good cry are better with a friend.

I believe in having a house where the inside doors don't lock.. but sometimes I wish I didn't.

I believe "What do you think?" Is the best way to answer a question you don't want to answer.

I believe in taking too many photos and then not deleting any of them.

I believe words are powerful and sometimes I am careless with them.

I believe in do-it-yourself. Conversely I believe in asking for help, and it has taken YEARS to come to this conclusion.

I believe children should dress for church, sit reverently during service, and smile at the elderly, but that doesn't make it happen,

I believe sometimes it's okay to bribe kids under 3, I mean 4 okay.. seven is definitely the cut off.

I believe you should kiss before you leave and say I love you because you just never know.

I believe the days can be long, but the years fly by.

I believe a thing worth doing is worth doing well, as long as your doing, if I'm doing it i will determine what degree of "well" is acceptable given the time and energy constraints I'm currently under.

I believe the best time of my life is everyday, if I want it to be.

THANK YOU for playing Summer! Your words and crafts inspire me and I can't wait to see what you have in store for the new year.
