  1. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens (I must admit that I’m not the biggest fan of cats, except for you, JoJo)
  2. Brown paper packages tied up with string (I’m mastering the art of online shopping)
  3. Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes (I feel like my childhood was incomplete without a dress like this)
  4. When one door closes, another one opens.
