Easy like Sunday morning....


I've truly been blessed by the kind and thoughtful words of others. Other times, not so much. The quote, "You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world and there's still going to be somebody that hates peaches." Will apply at some point in everyones life. It has mine. I believe I found the key to that phrase though: If you're doing what you love, it won't even matter anyway.
No matter if you're doing what you love or you're with the person you love, if you truly have a passion for it/them, any negative words will leave you as quickly as they arrived.
That really took me a long time to figure out because when I first started blogging, I figured that everybody would have the same fire that I had for the content that I shared... Not always.

So what makes this whole thing worth it? Pretty simple: I absolutely love sharing my life, my home, tips, pictures, etc. because that's who I am. A wife, a mom, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a granddaughter, a friend and even stranger (to some), whose main goals are support and motivate others.
 I think that that may be lost in in some of the readers eyes sometimes. Maybe because the pictures are pretty, my daughter isn't being messy or crying, my husband is still smiling even while taking his millionth blog pic with me. But aren't there always two sides? My daughter is two. She's not a unicorn (even though she'd like to be)... She cries, has bad days, colors on my freshly painted walls, spills food and takes a nap without even thinking twice about the mess she made in our living room just 10 minutes before. I also have a husband that owns his own business and works his butt off 24 hours, 7 days a week. Oh and to top it off, I have two dinosaurs for dogs. A German Shepherd and a Golden Retriever. We splurged on hardwood floors in hopes of keeping the dog hair down but in reality, I get to sweep our entire downstairs daily. But remember the peaches reference? See why all the bad is actually outweighed by good is because I have a daughter that we love more than all the seashells. She's smart.. sometimes too smart for her own good. She's ambitious and independent... All of the qualities that we prayed she would take from us. I also have a husband that's dedicated to our family, would do anything for us and loves us more than the world. And you can't forget our two dogs - The loyalty that they have for me, Devon and Penelope is seriously remarkable.
Those things are what matter most in my life. Everything else falls after that. Trust me.

 "..Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that."

Choose to love. Choose to be loved. And always love in return.

Happy Sunday, y'all
