I hope you all enjoy the quotes I've picked out for this edition of Quotables!
Why it speaks to me: I love this quote because in my family, food is really important. Before any holiday or gathering, we all want to know what the hosts are making (and they will gladly tell you because they've had the menu planned for a month). There are recipes that have been passed down from my grandparents that will hopefully continue to be passed down. Some of my best memories are of sitting around the dining room table, laughing and talking.
Why it speaks to me: This quote is just so relevant for today's social media-obsessed culture. I'm guilty of it - when I see other people's awesome vacations or big houses or nice clothes, I get a bit jealous. But I have to remember - I'm seeing what they want me to see. You never know what's going on behind closed doors. We can't compare ourselves to others all the time - we have to be able to recognize the good things in our own life.
Which of these quotes is your favorite? Can you relate to any of them?
I love that last comment. My cousin is an obsessive Facebooker of all good things, and she and her husband brought their girls to Disney recently. Before she left I said 'Remember, it's more important that the girls have a good time at Disney than all of your Facebook friends THINK your having a good time!' We really do get caught up in social media, and it is so disruptive to our daily lives.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing! :)
You're, not your! Darn. I wish I could edit. LOLDelete
Ah, it's so true! It's not that I want to hear about everyone's problems on Facebook, either. It's nice to see happy, fun things! I just don't want it to be fake!Delete
I love the My Not So Perfect Life quote. It is so true!ReplyDelete
Great quotes! I think that last one's my favourite, even though it's probably the hardest to believe. Of course it's true, but it's so easy to think the opposite.ReplyDelete

Yeah, it's so true, but having to remind ourselves of that all the time is the hard part!Delete
Hello after a long time Angela! Life got too busy :( sorry about not stopping by for a while! Love the quotes!! I love the food one! I connect with food at a spiritual level :P Great post lovely!ReplyDelete
No worries, Uma! Glad you're back! Thank you! I love the food one, too, food is a HUGE part of my life!Delete
Such wonderful quotes! I especially love the one from Once and For All. I feel like it manages to truly describe a wedding as a whole as well as capture the magic and specialness weddings bring.ReplyDelete
Totally! I love how it encapsulates not only the specific day and the various things that happen on it, but the overall feel and the special meaning that weddings have.Delete
Love these quotes! They all ring so true, and for me especially the last one is a reminder I can also sometimes use :)ReplyDelete
Yes, I can definitely use that last one, too!Delete
What amazing quotes! I love them all! The wedding one is so true, and as you say it's so relevant when you look back on your own wedding.ReplyDelete
The food one too - I confess I'm a bit of a foodie and I love the way food can bring us together and yet all. Out tastes are so unique.
And then the last one - definitely super relevant to today's social media filled society. It's so easy to see that picture and nothing else where a picture might not be even close to the reality.
Thanks, Di! I really loved all of these quotes - they're so different, but I think all relatable!Delete
