Wedding motto #2


 "Le mieux est l'ennemi du bien."
- Voltaire


Loosely translated the sentiment is "the best is the enemy of good." ... Or in other words, stop driving yourself crazy for the best, most absolutely, supremely perfect things and start paying attention to all the perfectly good things your passing up along the way. 

I am forever trying to keep this in mind.
