I Believe

Posted on



…in the value of spending money on experiences instead of “stuff”;

…that Twitter may not actually be as pointless as I once suspected;

…in sarcasm;

…that by the water is the best place to be;

…in expensive mascara and cheap lipgloss;

…in real butter;

…in moonshine in a Mason jar, cheap wine in a big glass, and Ketel One in a dirty martini;

…in the smell of a two-stroke engine;

…in top-down, music-up, party-for-one jam sessions in the car – no matter where I’m going;

…in coffee;

…that snow is welcome from Christmas Eve to New Years Day each year and the rest of the days should be warm and sunny;

…in glitter and tutus and red-soled high heels;

…in mud and trucks and old, worn-in boots;

…in the power of a puppy’s kiss, a daddy’s hug, and a cowboy’s wink.


What do you believe in?


  • Aw, girl- I love this. And agree with oh so many of these!!

    Especially that snow is only welcome for that 1 week of the year. I hate it any other time!!

    • Right?! I’d really love to know who approved months and months of snow…so I can slap them.

  • In real butter … amen!! 😉

    • It’s a must in our house. I just can’t do the fake stuff. 🙂

  • These are some of my favorite posts. I agree that all the days after New Year and before Christmas should be warm.

    I thought Twitter was pointless until I started blogging, now I LOVE Twitter.

    • I do too! But before I started blogging, I was so reluctant to sign up. I just didn’t get it.

  • i adore posts like these. such a good way to get to know you a bit better! i believe in real butter too.

    • Thanks! They do tell you so much about a person, don’t they?

    • Oh thank god I’m not the only one who likes the smell of two stroke! I thought I was the only one 🙂
