24 Rules

I recently had a birthday, and so like many Moms do, my Momma spent some of the day looking at old pictures and sharing them with me. Every picture had a story behind it, and I found myself wondering: Were there any lessons hidden in these memories? Some of the time, there was nothing, and some of the time there was much more than I thought at first glance. So thank you to Mom for the lovely and embarrassing photos, and here are 24 totally 100% accurate and inviolable pieces of advice I have learned to follow during my life time.

  1. Just because you can eat it, doesn’t mean you should.          IMG_1734
  2. A bow tie is like a wrapped gift, if you wear one every day, it won’t be a treat.        IMG_8957
