THINGS I LEARNED FROM MY MOTHER

  1. Always travel with snacks.
    We must have been starved in our past lives because I won't leave the house without a bag of almonds.
  2. Fresh flowers are everything.
    Wanna make someone's day? Wanna brighten a room? Want a little color in your life? Get some flowers.
  3. Bring a sweater no matter the weather.
    There is nothing worse than giving in to the psychological effects of a freezing cold restaurant and leaving as quickly as humanly possible instead of enjoying a nice moment.
  4. Drink water
    This is the solution to hunger, headaches, constipation, broken out skin, boy troubles- literally everything.
  5. Treat yourself, but rarely and in small portions.
    My mom has convinced herself that she hates donuts because they're fattening. The woman has an incredible level of will power.
