"Who’s to say tomorrow won’t be the best day of your life?"

"I once threw a pen at a kid’s head for raising his hand in class and saying that PMS should disqualify women from leadership positions."
"she was special and unique because unlike other girls she read a book and drank a tea and didnt talk about a clothes"
After hearing the same question over and over from friends and family — “Why aren’t you married yet?” — art director Suzanne Heintz got tired of it and set out to do something about it. She got herself a little family…of mannequins.
Over the course of 14 years and 10,000 miles of travel, she took her fake family everywhere and took all kinds of “family” pictures….
I loved the comment of Laura:
She’s underlining the fact that for many people, a family seems to be little better than a trophy or badge to prove that someone has succeeded at fulfilling society’s expectations of them. How many families look great in photographs but are actually empty inside? The point is not to condemn family life, but to refuse to accept that a good life is simply one that looks good to other people.
