Best Thing Ever

Earlier today, my daughter and I were talking about our little book of ‘Never Agains‘. Then she flipped the conversation around and began talking about the best thing ever. Like, the ginormous bag of cotton balls we purchased, just because it’s the biggest bag we’ve ever seen. (pillow size) We can always use cotton balls.

A couple of weeks ago, we were out shopping, and came across a Valentine’s Day display. It was in the kitchen area of the store, and my daughter fell in love with a little whisk. She’s uses her favorite whisk so often, we were questioning how much longer it would last.

I scooped up the whisk from the Valentine’s display as we continued walking through the store. I didn’t look at the price.

When we arrived at the self-checkout, we scanned it and stared in disbelief at the register display. The whisk cost $1.00.

Today, we flipped the book of ‘Never Again’s’ over and began writing ‘Always Again’s’, from the back of the book. This little book now has two covers. One is ‘Never’s’ and the other side is ‘Always’.  I’m curious to see where they meet.

The bag of cotton balls, and this whisk are written in the ‘Always Again’ side. As you can see, the hearts stamped on the handle are fading from use. It’s been loved.

Tonight I believe our little book, and what we’ve written in it, is the best thing ever.

    This is a charming idea. I don’t know about you but I always tell myself I’ll “remember” one thing or another (without writing it down) but I don’t. Reminders are great.

      I’m the same way Colette! The worst is when you’re in the middle of doing something, and this weird feeling of deja vue engulfs you. Like….’I’ve been here before and the end result sucked!’ That’s where this little book with help. Haha Thank you lovely. xx

    I have a Pinterest board of “things that make you go hmmmm” and this post makes me think of that … it would have been a good thing to start so many years ago with a journal … a book of Never Again and Always Again. If you write it, it’s so much stronger than just saying it in your head. xo

      My daughter uses them with her makeup and me for nail polish remover. It’s one of those things that doesn’t have a specific use, but they get used. ❤
