"You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place."

So if you could change one thing about your body, what would it be? I'm kinda hesitating between cheetah legs and mermaid tale. http://buff.ly/1x4zGXO

this is so so true! We greatly undervalue the ordinary moments in our lives. And yet, it's the small, seemingly boring things that are so meaningful in retrospect: http://buff.ly/1Ggdvk8

Just finished listening to "The Signature of All Things" by Elisabeth Gilbert. Beautiful, expansive, sweeping novel.
My favorite quote:
“You see, I have never felt the need to invent a world beyond this world, for this world has always seemed large and beautiful enough for me. I have wondered why it is not large and beautiful enough for others-- why they must dream up new and marvelous spheres, or long to live elsewhere, beyond this dominion... but that is not my business. We are all different, I suppose. All I ever wanted was to know this world. I can say now, as I reach my end, that I know quite a bit more of it than I knew when I arrived. Moreover, my little bit of knowledge has been added to all the other accumulated knowledge of history-- added to the great library, as it were. That is no small feat, sir. Anyone who can say such a thing has lived a fortunate life.”

"I am very much standing in the middle between my parents and my children when it comes to technology, one foot dipped in the waters of Instagram and Twitter and the other still stuck in the luddite mud of “In my day, we passed paper notes in class, sent real letters to penpals, and talked to each other’s faces!” When it comes to parenting, I find this middle place extremely uncomfortable, because I know what childhood and adolescence were like before the Internet, and my parenting models all came from that era."
Good read: http://buff.ly/1nOHlq8

As you read for your daughter, tell her: Don’t wait for the prince to rescue you. Be prepared to rescue yourself. Found here (more funny stuff):

Childhood is magical, in its own right. Somehow in the last few years it all got turned upside down and parents feel this pressure to "make it" magical. Pinterest worthy craft projects, themed birthday parties, elaborately decorated nurseries. We see all this and we feel guilty, we feel we are not doing enough. I'm calling BS. Collecting stones is magical, playing in mud is magical. We don't need to structure things, make an "activity" out of everything. "Encouraging creativity" means letting kids loose on pack of paper, glue and scissors. Without detailed instructions and guiding hand. It's sometimes difficult to shut up and let them do their thing, but it's so totally worth it. Give some inspiration, that's all they need.
