Hope ya'll are having a good start to the week! A few things I've come across that are inspiring me this week. And that quote, I'm certainly guilty of standing in my own way more often that I'd like to admit, and think I'm going to put this up on my bathroom mirror for the week to hopefully serve as a daily reminder. I tape quotes to my full length, bedroom, bathroom, and hallway mirrors, not to mention on the refrigerator and even framed in the living room (ok, so maybe I go overboard with the quotes, but they really can be motivators!). Do ya'll have any quotes or favorite words of wisdom you tape somewhere you'll be certain to see on a daily basis for inspiration? If so, I would love for you to share them with me, because (just in case you couldn't tell), I absolutely love the power of words and quotations.
Happy Thursday, and day before the weekend, ya'll! I had to share with ya'll a few things inspiring me this week. With the cool temperatures and countdown to Thanksgiving (which honestly, I could skip right over and celebrate December for two months if I had it my way!), it has me more excited than ever for my VERY. FAVORITE. MONTH. EVER. This is not an understatement, with all of the most fabulous things happening in December: Boo Radley's birthday, MY birthday, Christmas, New Year's & the holiday spirit in general.. what's not to love about the most fabulous month all year long? Wouldn't you agree? Working on several fabulous gift guides, and not to mention a VERY exciting blog design update, with a new logo and all, can't wait to share these with you in the coming weeks!
Oh hey there, Monday! I know we all dread Monday mornings, but I figured today instead of focusing on the typical Monday blues, why not change it up a little, and think about what positive things Monday also represents. Hello, isn't it the start of a brand new week? A chance to start fresh again and an exciting opportunity to see what the week brings? I love the idea of a clean slate and fresh start, and truly believe that if I wake up on Monday morning and instead of dreading the start of the week, try to think of the positive things a new week means, then it will change my entire attitude for the rest of the week.
If ya'll follow me on twitter you might have seen me mention this article, but in case you missed it, this article from the Huffington Post is worth taking a few minutes of your afternoon and reading..the writer, Claire Bidwell Smith, reminds us all that in this day and age of social media, twitter, Instagram, always letting the world know what we are up to, it may appear that we have such fabulous lives without a care in the world, but the reality is, those day-to-day photos of life when it's not perfect, when things don't go as planned, when your world feels like it is crashing down on you, those things do happen to all of us, and just because they are not shown in social media outlets, doesn't mean they don't exist.
Finally, a little inspiration to remember this week, and something I'm hoping to remember anytime I need to make a decision...

A few things I'm loving and feeling inspired by on this Monday afternoon. I am in love with both the black and white striped and polka dot walls, and have just recently started the process of painting the walls in my apartment. Wouldn't you be happy walking into a room with polka dots on it? Love that idea! Also love the lettering in the quote above, isn't it amazing? Hope ya'll are having a good start to the week. What's inspiring ya'll this Monday? And I'm curious what color are the walls in your place currently? If you're able to paint them, what color did you decide on? Would love to hear your thoughts!
