Happy Friday sweet friends! This has quickly become my favorite day on the blog. I have really started to look forward to sharing the new "loves" that my friends have shared each week because it is such a pick-me-up, I think. Today I have, Molly, one of the wonderful sisters of the amazing duo that run A Piece of Toast. You might remember when Molly was kind enough to ask me to be a part of APOT's She Wishes She Was Wearing series. APOT is one of those sparkly spots on the web that you can go to always find the perfect post to brighten your day. So without a moment more read on to see what Molly is loving about herself today.
"1. I love my ability to trust my instincts. For whatever reason, I make decisions easily (even difficult ones) and can honestly say that I can't remember a time when I've had regret based on my own choices. You know how people tell you to listen to your gut? Well I do! And I feel happiest when I listen to myself versus rethinking decisions every which way... I know I'm lucky to have this inner "trust" and it's definitely something I have become increasingly appreciative of over the past several years.
2. I love that I'm type A. It's a double edged sword - there's no doubt about it - but I like that I am organized, neat, and sort of a clean freak. If I'm feeling overwhelmed, I go on a cleaning spree or spend a few hours organizing. There are worse things, right?! No...My vacuum isn't my best friend and I'm not compulsive about things being neat 100% of the time - but I do like making my bed each morning so I can climb in "crisp" sheets each night and it makes me happy when things are in their place. Maybe in my next life I will be a professional organizer, ha!
3. I love my eyelashes. They are my one beauty vice and I'm shamelessly obsessed...I feel naked without mascara (even thought I get my lashes dyed each month) and can't leave the house till they are curled and ready to go. Even if someday I'm bald, I'll always feel pretty with my long and full eye lashes! P.S. my secret to extra length is Neulash; a serious miracle worker. I can't live without waterproof mascara (currently still searching for a favorite) and my Tarte eyelash curler.
4. I love that I'm affectionate. Phone calls can't end without an "I love you" - whether I'm talking to my family or friends - and I love giving and receiving hugs (and kisses when they are from my guy). My mom always said I was a big cuddler when I was little and I love that I haven't outgrown it!"
Is she not the cutest?! I feel like I am right there with her listening to her "loves" the way Molly writes. It is hard to highlight just one love, so I won't. I will highlight two:). I simply love that Molly has a love for her instincts. I feel like life is filled with decisions big and small every hour of every day, so having strong instincts that you trust is so important. I also love that Molly loves her eyelashes. So often we forget those little pieces of us that make us - well - us! Freckles, dimples, eyelashes...there are so many little things that make us special, and I am so glad that Molly reminds us all of that. A big thank you to Molly for sharing with us today. Hope everyone has an amazing weekend. Lotsa love....J
