don't be corny.....

actually, be as corny as you want to be. make others laugh. make yourself laugh. be here. don't be back there or too far ahead, just be here. love deeply. love like there won't be a tomorrow. be thankful when you wake up. the past is the past, leave it there. eat broccoli. play in the leaves. don't keep your feelings inside. eat cream cheese frosting, by itself. call your parents. be gentle with your words, they have the ability to be cut without your knowledge. quiche can be eaten three times a day. fall back this weekend. take more photos, of anything. take more photos of yourself. walk. walk a lot. make eye contact with strangers and watch them smile. don't scowl. be honest. hold hands. make out. eat the halloween candy you bought. buy more candy. don't wear clothes that make you feel ugly. drink more water. be gentle, all the time. grow together. don't let one of you get ahead or stay behind. talk it out. don't assume. learn something new. do something new. figure out what makes you happy and do it. if it takes a while to figure it out, don't beat yourself up. say no. oh, for the love of God, say no. and last but not least, let me repeat, BE HERE. be present.

the quotes above are from tumblr and most likely found on my pinterest page.

    words to think on. Oh for a good laugh soon.
    Something corny would be just about perfect.

  6. I'd like to convince Santa that I've been good (enough) to earn a nice camera for Christmas. My very own, quality camera. A first. I've arrived and it's time. Don't you think? Now to learn to use it...

  11. My and son and I were in Rochester earlier this week and saw several of those trees with the green thingamabobs. We wondered if they were walnuts. They had made quite the mess on the sidewalks but were fascinating looking.
