i believe in...

I saw this post on Sami's blog last night and thought I'd do my own version for the post link-up on the Living in Yellow blog. You may not agree with some of my beliefs, but I hope you'll still read.

I believe in love at first sight.
I believe in rescuing animals and not buying them from breeders.
I believe hard work pays off.
I believe in eating chocolate daily.
I believe that popcorn is best eaten with M&Ms.
I believe that my love language is acts of service.
I believe that people are genuinely good.
I believe that you can really be anything you want to be.
I believe in the life, death and miraculous resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I believe in the power of the Bible.
I believe that satin sheets are not just for trashy women.
I believe that dogs can understand English.
I believe in having a glass of wine every once in awhile.
I believe that a smile has transformative powers.
I believe that a cycle of abuse, neglect and mistreatment can be broken.
I believe that words can both harm and heal.
I believe that Hewitt is one of the cutest dogs I've ever seen.
I believe that greek yogurt is disgusting.
I believe that humility can get you very far in life.

Oh, and one more thing...

I believe that having a wonderful, caring, loving, generous, thoughtful and wise mother prepares you to be a wonderful, caring, loving, generous, thoughtful and wise adult. I believe that my mom is THE BEST mom in the world. And, yes, I'm slightly biased. 

So boom.

Happy Birthday mom! I love you!!



  1. Ha ha! As a foreigner, I must ask do you think all dogs outside the English-speaking world live in constant confusion when their families speak in another language to them :D

    Sweet list. It is always wonderful to learn more about a person behind the blog.


    1. Thanks Steffi!

      I guess you're right on that. Perhaps dogs speak the same language as their masters do. That would only make sense, right? ;)

  2. You're right, Greek yogurt IS disgusting!

    1. BAHAHAHA. It's like eating lotion.

    2. Yes! The consistency is exactly like a tub of Cetaphil cream (which a terrific product but I wouldn't EAT it).

  3. I'm glad I'm not the only one who hates greek yogurt!

    1. Bleh, my mom and sister love it. I can't even stand the smell of the containers in the trashcan. Vom.

  4. Love your list girly!

    xo, Emily

  5. You should make a list of things you don't believe in. For instance, I don't believe in drowning.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
