thursday thoughts pt. 43


Some time ago I was going through all my old letters and cards I have received over the years. Does anyone else keep all of their letters and cards or is that odd? I've two big boxes full, haha! I get so attached to things and I love keeping everything and looking back with nostalgia. I genuinely have more feelings about things I own or have owned and places I've been to than about all the people that have been a part of my life.. This is a quote one of my friends had written in a birthday card for my 15th birthday (I think, anyway somewhere around that age.). Obviously it's just meant to be something funny, but I can't help but think that maybe there's a little truth in it as well:-)

I would definitely be happier with a pink world. Tee hee.

Haha your friend was a wise, wise 15 year old :) And I'm the same way! I still have letters from high school, which are probably around ten years old now. They're so sweet to read from time to time- especially when you realize how much has changed since then.

Also, from your comment on my blog- I totally get what you mean about not wanting to look too tomboy-ish with short hair! When I had it I felt like I had to walk a really fine line or else the outfit would be ruined with the boyish cut. I tried to go more American Apparel-y with my super short cut, just because the style was still very androgynous, but with a little more girl appeal :)

I once babysat a little girl who asked if we could color. When she colored her entire coloring book page with one pink crayon, she told me everything in the entire world should be pink. I totally agree with that sentiment. I think that's why I love Valentine's Day so much--pink (+ red + white) is such a cheerful color!
