I followed Keri’s blog obsessively back in high school and only recently-rediscovered it. The little quotes she drops into her blog are so thought-provoking.

Keri has inspired me to seek a little more unexpected, irrational magic in my life this week! Reading her blog last night made me feel excited to leave a note in a public place, wrap a gift for a neighbor I haven’t met, give strangers kind compliments… What could be better inspiration than that?
