in 2008 we had lovely neighbors on the other block at our little rental in provo, ut.
on their chimney are these carved words:
be pretty if you are, be witty if you can, but be cheerful if it kills you.

which is adapted from this quote by  Elsie de Wolfe:
"Be pretty if you can, be witty if you must, but be gracious if it kills you."

i loved it immediately and would find myself thinking about it when i was having a crappy day. so thus, the title of my blog, trying to be cheerful, and gracious in all things, good and bad.

pretty witty and cheerful then morphed into just Pretty Cheerful, because that's my goal as a mother and woman. To stay pretty cheerful no matter what.
