A Wish



I was a child who constantly made wishes. Whether it was upon a star, blowing a dandelion, or throwing shiny pennies into fountains, I was enchanted by the idea of making dreams come to life. I thought that if I closed my eyes really tight and believed, I just may find the gold at the end of the rainbow or my lifelong crush would be mine if my last daisy petal said so. Today, I still make a wish every time I blow out birthday candles or see a shooting star. There is something so magical and pure about a wish, and I like to think that they really do come true.







Do you wish?

  1. I don't wish for the same reason I don't buy lottery tickets: I don't expect them to come true!

    I do wish for things that are attainable, like a great job and an awesome apartment. These are more dreams, though.

    I think my dreams and your wishes have magic because they bring excitement and hope into our lives that might otherwise not be there with messes in life that tend to leave us pessimistic and jaded.

  3. My friend is a firm believer in making wishes at 11:11, but personally I find it almost childish. I feel like wishes are special, almost like a prayer, and to wish everyday at the exact same time takes the magic out of a wish.

  4. What gorgeous photos! I love the first one. I make a lot of wishes (I'm a big fan of the 11:11 one) but tend to go through phases where I wish for the same thing all of the time!

  9. Yes, I wish! I'm a big wisher too! Did you ever do the leaf one? My mom always said if you catch a falling a leaf, or a leaf lands on you, that if you say a wish, and throw it over your shoulder, then your wish will come true. Trust me, I've got lots of ways to say wishes. Haha.

  11. i love wishes too and used to wish on everything, especially times like 10:10, 11:11, etc.

  12. I used to wish on everything too. Especially when it was the same hour as seconds. Like 1:11. Now I've learned that all you can do is pray and have hope that if it's what God wants for you, it will happen in due time. :)

  15. Yes, I still make wishes! There's just something so fun about making a wish. Maybe it's because it takes me back to my childhood?

  18. I always make wishes and I always buy lottery tickets because I HOPE it will happen to me! And I do a lot of silly things like if I throw this wad of paper in the trash and it goes in then I'll win X, or do Z, etc. It's odd...haha

    And as to your comment on my page, I love Emily Giffin books!! She seems so down to earth and like you'd instantly become friends!

  27. Love this. I am the same way. I would wish on everything. Still do. When I go thru tunnels while driving I hold my breathe and make a wish. It's tradition.

  28. Absolutely LOVE this because I'm all about wishes, whenever I can get! I make a wish at 11:11 during the entire minute (I don't stop until it's 11:12, pennies being thrown into a fountain, when i see ANY star in the sky! My boyfriend yells at me and tells me i'm doing it wrong, that it has to be when there is ONE star! What can I say? I cannot help myself! :)

  29. Hey Marcie girl! What a great post!
    I love the idea of wishes, they are filled with hope and faith, trusting in what you cannot see!
    I still wish, but mostly pray!

  31. I use to always make wishes as a child too! This especially reminds me of walking though the castle at Disneyland and hearing Jiminy Cricket singing... When you wish upon a star...
