i woke up & forgot to make my bed but most days are like that for me. it was a pretty gloomy friday so i stayed in & watched old classic movies, picked some flowers from my mom's garden & lit some candles. i am a candle girl for sure.
(photo via we heart it)i took some pictures of my tealights all lit up around my house
& the flowers i picked
this is one of my favorite candle scents. it's from anthropologie & it smells just like that store. it's called volcano. every time i light it my whole house smells amazing!
wrote me. my best friends from college & there kids came to visit me & my family. the night they left i was getting ready for bed & i found this note on my nightstand. it was the best surprise! i miss both of them & the kids already but i am so thankful for our time together because i soak up every second i can have with them.
(photo via we heart it)i love
new discoveries- like this yellow dish i found in my cupboard today.
manhattan beach designer jill johnson is so pretty. her aqua blue dish inspired me to take my yellow dish out of the cupboard so it could brighten up my house a bit on a day the sun wasn't so shiny.
brightens my days. she is totally into all things girly. like purses, dolls and jewelry.
collecting her first piece of jewelry for the day but she'll be adding more...
creative & unique for she likes to wear them on her arms instead of around her cute little neck. that doll in the background was mine when i was little & if you were to see her up close you wouldn't be surprised because she has the rattiest hair from all of her doll years her on earth & she seems to be missing her clothes too but annie can still pretend she's her pretty baby doll.
little girl i played dress up & had fashion shows daily, i dreamed that someday like cinderella my prince charming would sweep me off my feet.
& the things that brightened my days were always my family. my parents taught me that jesus was the only one who really could fulfill all of my desires because he loved me. so even when i face hard times i know he is always with me.
(above 3 photos via wanderings of a wannabe)i can look back without regret & shamelessly!
(above photo is my dad, annie & i all wearing our converse shoes, we didn't plan it)so here's to a great weekend & a life lived without regret.
