the days were warm; we wore them like skin.

mound of fresh berries
open-toed shoes
cherry blossoms
friends
spring break
pixie cuts
what even is your face sir
the great gatsby
light sweaters (with stripes)
waltzes
lace headbands
fresh herbs
the smell of a clean house
free cocoa (with latte art -- #holla)
blazers
films set in paris (midnight in paris, how to steal a million, etc)
audrey hepburn
kolaches
homage to blue skies

these first few days included high heels and lace headbands, artsy cocoa (perfectly complemented the weather, too) and music interviews, spring cleaning and audrey hepburn's how to steal a million (or rather spring working because i'm doing the home insanity workouts instead), discussions about white chocolate and cherry blossoms and nocturnes on the piano. it feels like summer but the lack of heat makes the weather altogether pleasurable. it's days like these that i want to keep, that i want to fold into and wear like skin. and who knows? maybe it'll protect me from getting another tan. so here's to spring. maybe texas will be merciful on us this year.

    1. sweetheart, i don't know you, and i probably never will. and to be perfectly honest, this doesn't phase me. i've muttered the word 'ugly' and much worse to myself so many times that it literally sounded foreign and my mind couldn't comprehend it anymore. and you know what? it's not worth it. lately, i haven't been feeling the best about myself. actually some days have sucked, incredibly so. and yet somehow, people just say things to me (knowing or unknowing) that lift me up. "you're a good daughter, jocelyn." from my mom. a simple "you look good," from my best friend. and a "your worth is so much more than what you see in the mirror," from a blessed woman who i am so thankful to know (you know who you are, jessica :P). not to make this into a full-fledged, but this just doesn't put me down, okay? honestly, it makes me feel so incredibly beautiful. it makes me realize that oh my gosh, i was made by this fantastic God who loves me so much (and you too) and has given me so many abilities that i probably don't even know i have yet. i'm sure people think i'm unattractive more than i want them to. and you know what, since i'm typing this: for everyone reading, you are so freaking gorgeous and your beauty melts the icing off any opposer's cupcake. and even if i don't think so all the time, i tell myself that i am exquisite. not just on the outside and not to be selfish, but i say it about what's on the inside of me, too. so, i mean, you can say and think what you want. but i know the Truth.

      have a great day! and i mean it, really do have a great day. i'm not trying to be mean or ironic, i'm serious. go do something wonderful with yourself.

      but just one thing. it's 'Ew, you're ugly.' capitalization is your choice, but at least use a period. (it's been eating at me, i couldn't shake it.)
