One thing I have learned is that expectations are kind of a bitch. Not having them is much smarter when it comes to friends, family, your job, or anything. If you lose the expectation — you will constantly be pleasantly surprised and not constantly disappointed.
Now, if you order something amazing online you can expect it to arrive in a timely fashion. Take these monogrammed necklaces I found on ETSY. So sweet, right? The perfect gift. I had to choose the Mary one in honor of my amazing little sis.
I like to share my fave things here, you can always expect that I guess too. :). I love to give succulents as gifts. It is the perfect present for the person who has everything. Now, the Knotty Bride takes the succulent to a whole new level for her wedding. Prince would be proud.
I try to think of everything that comes my way as a gift – sometimes in unusual wrapping – but there are always lessons to be learned and challenges that help us face fears or get to another level within. When all else fails … I always say grab a pal and go have a great slice of cake!
