i love how light and bright this nursery is. the parents who did this nursery didn't find out if they were having a boy or a girl so they had to get creative and make it workable for either! i love it. they used all recycled materials to create this room and did most of it themselves. the bottles hanging from the ceiling is a lamp! how cute.

i want my world to revolve around my hubby & children. i want to be there for them like my sweet mother always was for me. i want to wake up and make them blueberry pancakes and send them off on their days with love notes in their lunches.
it's the little things in life that make it magical! like these fruity tootie stickers perhaps? i think so.

in my perfect world, money would not matter. so why does it?
because in order to have time to love and make memories, i must have money. i do not love money, i love time to be with my family... &money can bring that to me. that is the most important thing to me.yes, i could make memories living outside and searching through dumpsters and live without money... or i could work hard now so i have money later and make memories playing games and dancing around the house singing (because i am not burdened by 12 hour shifts multiple times a week) and going on relaxing trips to the beach with my family(because my husband busted his bum for ten years so we could live a comfortable life).
i want to live simply.
a life burdened by a blasting television, video games, computer games, constant texting, a cluttered unclean home, too much stuff that we don't need, envy, sin, bodies burdened by too much sugar and caffeine, and an unhealthy lifestyle do nothing but distract from what we really want in life...
happiness and love.
i want my life to be full of love, happiness, simplicity, time, memories, service, healthy food, gardens, bike rides, trips, adventures, cuddling, the Gospel, fruit trees, baking fresh pies, classy outfits, soft blankets, comfy pillows, singing, dancing, croquet, open space, laughing, contentment, family, friends, home, and beauty.
does that sound like an unreachable fantasy that is not realistic in our wicked world? yes, it does. but it's not... because my life is full of most of those things now! and if i work for the rest then i know i will reach it.
my life is evolving in simple and beautiful ways. i am learning to realize what truly matters in life and how i can make the most of my life by simplicity and love. when we rid ourselves of all the extra "stuff" that distracts us, we can focus on those things that we truly love... and that brings me happiness and peace. the two greatest gifts i could ever ask for!
so this is my blog. this is my place to document all things of love&inspiration... to document my journey to a more simple life, what i have found brings true happiness, things that inspire me, and my plans for my life...
it is important for me to have goals. little goals for every day and also goals for my life. if i do not know what i want out of my life, how will i ever get there? i do not want to float around with no purpose. i want to figure it out before i make mistakes, not after. i want to get advice from people i look up to and apply it. i want to have meaning in my life every day. i want to create a world for my children that is magical and full of incredible love. this doesn't happen overnight. it takes work and planning and i'm starting now!
