came across this picture from a happy time years ago.

came across this quote for happy times in years to come:

there is nothing wrong with loving the crap out of everything. negative people build their walls. so never apologize for your enthusiasm. never. ever. never.
- ryan adams

i know sometimes i need to keep my enthusiasm for life in balance. but i’ll never apologize for loving the crap out of everything.


  1. You are darling and your enthusiasm for life is catchy. Thanks for reminding us how wonderful life is. We all need a refresher course in "Joy School" at times. On your bucket list "have a secret boyfriend" is listed. Maybe you already have. Maybe we know him and you don't yet. What things are you looking for in a man? How tall are you? We have a son who is trying to get into Harvard or Stanford. He sure could use a friend that thinks an ivy league school is important.

  2. It's so funny you posted this. I've followed your blog here and there and many times I thought, ok, she needs to take it down a notch. So I love your post today and you are 100% correct in your words.

  3. Such a cute picture of you, Charity! And thanks for the words of wisdom!

  4. Well I admire your enthusiasm. This weekend my little family moved across the country and the weeks leading up to this point have been hectic and stressful. So (cheesy as it sounds) I've been trying to channel the "Eyre enthusiasm" and see things with optimism and a spirit for adventure. I've often read a few of your blog posts to jump start that enthusiasm! It has SO helped this time to be fun instead of the drudge/horror I would normally see it as. So, thanks for your enthusiasm. It has made my life better.

  5. You came wired for enthusiasm! What a wonderful gift!
