greater things are yet to come.

A quick trip down memory lane showed me that I haven’t shared a Words for Wednesday post since December – crazy! While lately I seem to be compiling my favorite images of advice and inspiration on Instagram or Pinterest, I definitely don’t want to stop sharing on Polish My Crown today. I recently found a site called – I could literally spend hours on the site reading the different inspirational and empowering words. Here’s just a few of my favorites! I think my favorite is the top quote: greater things are yet to come. There are much bigger and better plans in place for […]

merry and bright

I can’t believe it’s less than one week until Christmas! I flew back home on Sunday night and I’m very thankful for the extra time I can spend with my family before the holidays. Since Christmas is obviously on my mind, I thought I’d share a fun holiday-themed Words for Wednesday post today. Do you have any favorite holiday traditions? I also enjoy our girls cookie day {Saturday this year!} where we bake cookies all day with my cousin Erin, aunts and grandma. I also love Christmas Eve with my family – church, fondue, family game night and a big sister sleepover. Hope your day […]

Let everything happen to you.

Happy Wednesday! After noticing my Words of Wisdom board on Pinterest reached over 650 pins, I decided it was time to oh, I don’t know, create a separate board focused on quotes. Enter in my Words of Wisdom, Part 2 board where all of the images in this blog post are also currently located. These are a few quotes that have inspired me lately, especially the top one. “Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.” This is a great reminder whenever you’re in a funky mood or at a point in your day/week/month where you’re at the […]

Life grows lovely where you are

I’ve shared a Words for Wednesday blog sharing images from the Type Written Word blog before {here} and thought I would share a few more of my favorite quotes from the site. While I realllllllly like all of these quotes, but one stuck out to me as especially inspiring. “One day you will learn how to give and receive love like an open window and it will feel like summer every day.” What a wonderful thing to learn! I wrote about how to love previously and wrote what love looks like to me – love is appreciating others. Love is accepting others. Love is wanting other people to […]

stop worrying

Confession: I worry way more than I should and way more than I want to. There, I said it. Okay, so now that it’s out there, let’s talk about worry. Do you ever get caught in the slippery slope of worry? I think about one thing, then another, then another and then all of a sudden I am consumed with fear and worry about something. While I don’t typically get stressed out by what’s going on in a situation, but instead get worried that it might get worse. That the worst thing ever could maybe potentially happen. Please tell me I’m not the only one! […]

let certain things go

Do you ever hold on to things, situations, people for too long? Trust me, I do. I have things in my closet that I absolutely can’t give up, but really need to go. I have situations that I replay over and over in my head that need to stop being rehashed. I have people who should be cut off from my life because they are a negative force – rather than a positive one. Letting go has been something something on my mind and I want to make a conscious effort to actually do just that. Sometimes I just need to breathe and let go […]
