20 Life Lessons I Learned From Mom - Hyvaa Paivaa Textiles
Together, my Mom and I have created Hyvää Päivää Textiles, an outlet for our craft additions and overstock of supplies. This post is dedicated to Mom, owner of Dock Days Designs and the lady who has taught me so much. Through the years, I have learned a lot from my mom...below is a collection of things that have helped me through my life. Things she taught me without realizing I was paying attention.

1. Music is never too loud. Especially in the summer with all the windows open. Go ahead and sing along even though your not all that good at it.

2. If your car starts smoking or making a funny noise, drive faster...you'll be closer to home by the time it breaks down.

3. Crying in the shower is always better than just crying. Sometimes a good cry makes you feel better.

4. Nothing is better than good friends, good coffee and good wine.

5. Never leave the house without your cup of water...and maybe one of coffee too.

6. Wrap apples in a cloth napkin before you pack then in your lunch. You get the benefit of the napkin and the apple won't get bruised...this is brilliant.

7. There is always more wine in the box or more toothpaste in the tube. You just have to know how to get to it.

8. Pick your battles.

9. Always have fun...and water fights in the house aren't that big of a deal. Water dries and it adds humidity to the house.

10. Don't sweat the small stuff and find try to find the good side of things.

11. Love unconditionally and deeply.

12. Be spontaneous. Adventure is out there just waiting to be had...fly by the seat of your pants and see what happens.

13. Learn to follow road signs and read a map. You will never be lost no matter where you go.

14. Don't poke The Bear and stay out of his way when he is fixing things...hiding under an afghan and giggling does not help The Bear but it is fun anyways.

15. There is no shame in peeing in a corn field.

16. Honesty is the best policy.

17. Never be afraid to stick up for what you believe and what is right.

18. Friends are sometimes more family than family.

19. Multitasking is a gift. Who says I shouldn't do laundry, pay bills and hem some pants while watching a movie?

20. Naps are necessary.

There is so much more but the list would be never-ending.

Thanks Mom!
