because summertime in the Chi is the best time
There is magic in long-distance friendships. They let you relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound.
Diana Cortes (via sidebraids)
And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality. I’d find you and I’d choose you.

If it is right, it happens — The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.

John Steinbeck, born on this day in 1902, on falling in love in a magnificent letter of advice to his teenage son. (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

Fall in love with someone who wants you, who waits for you. Who understands you even in the madness; someone who helps you, and guides you, someone who is your support, your hope. Fall in love with someone who talks with you after a fight. Fall in love with someone who misses you and wants to be with you. Do not fall in love only with a body or with a face; or with the idea of being in love.

I would like to travel the world with you twice. Once, to see the world. Twice, to see the way you see the world.

Nordstrom has some great new activewear stuff that I’d love to add to my closet for spring.
Sidenote: I actually hate the term activewear, since it implies that athletic-style clothing should ONLY be used for athletic-style things. Well, that’s silly (and the leggings on my body RIGHT THIS SECOND would agree). Damn, we live in a beautiful time. I can wear comfortable clothing that’s only a hop away from pajamas, put on proper shoes (actually, who needs proper shoes? Pinterest tells me that sneakers are “in”) and I can go out in public with my head held high. Anyway, that’s why I tried to choose some items here that can pull double duty. The leggings can, duh, but the tops would be perfect for errands/weekend/going shopping/general sluggery too. 
Nike Epic Dri-Fit Crewneck Top, $60 (1) - 6 available colors and CYA-compliant. (Cover-Your-Assets) 
Solow Barre Stirrup Leggings, $88 (2)
Zella Mixed Media Running Tights, $88 (3) - Love the mesh panels. 
Zella Double Scoop Tank, $44 (4) - These look nice and long. 
Alo Goddess Ribbed Leggings, $92 (5) - Two other color combos available but I really like the white/gray. 
Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 Shoes, $100 (6) - You probably knew this, but the higher you go on the Nike Free scale (3.0, 4.0 and so on), the less barefoot (and more traditionally supportive) the feel of the shoe. I have a pair of 4.0 and 5.0s and love how light they still feel on my feet. 
Nike Air Max Thea Sneaker, $100 (7) - !!!!!
Karma Keyhole Back High/Low Dolman Sleeve Sweater, $74 (8) - What slug witchery is this I say, fetch it to me at once
Marc New York by Andrew Marc Distressed Fleece Drape Cardigan, $58 (9) - Fleece. Drape. Cardigan. 
Zella Harmony Hoodie, $50 (from $68) (10) - Cute color!

Tell him yes. Even if you are dying of fear, even if you are sorry later, because whatever you do, you will be sorry all the rest of your life if you say no.

Welp. This is goddamned relevant.
