Flowers On Your Doorstep

You deserve flowers on your doorstep and coffee in the morning. You deserve notes left on your dashboard and ice cream sundaes at 3 a.m. You deserve honesty everyday and to be kissed every hour. You deserve to be reminded how beautiful you are. -Shia Labeouf

And you deserve to be told that you are enough, you are more than enough.

It’s How You See Yourself


“Your job is to see people as they really are, and to do this, you have to know who you are in the most compassionate possible sense. Then you can recognize others.” -Anne Lamott

Do you understand? Read it twice. Love every inch of yourself. Embrace every good part and every bad part about you — do it without making up excuses. Be humble. Be gentle. And then it will all begin to make sense. 

XOXO, Bailey Mikell

Didn’t feel a drop

Today I’d like to sit beneath an umbrella and kiss until the rain stops; Then we can go inside & laugh about how we didn’t feel a drop. How special is it to have someone to do such silly things with and not have it feel silly at all.

I love you Andy. I can’t wait for you to come home.

All my love, Honey

Good morning little birds, I hope you went to bed with a dream & woke up with a purpose (& a new chapter to dive into, of course) XOXO

Holiday Sanity

Tonight grandma & I are going to decorate the Christmas tree together. I haven’t been in the ‘Christmas spirit’ yet, so hopefully this does the trick. We were going to have clam chowder for dinner, but decided to go the less traditional route & have teriyaki chicken & rice. I am following this recipe because this is my first time making it. For those of you who are vegetarian, first of all, kudos. Second of all, if you’re craving a teriyaki dish I found a vegetarian version made with tofu. Let me know if any of you decide to try it. I hope you’re all having an awesome Monday! I will post more later this evening. In the mean time here are a few things I thought I’d share with you.
