Three Books that Taught me About Self-Love

Reading about the topic of self-love has always been the best way I have learned about my own personal limiting believes and have been able to grow and expand my goals, outlook, and perspectives. I reached out to an amazing blogger whos blog has inspired me in so many ways. Lecy from A Simpler Grace. I asked Lecy to share with us her favorite books that have taught her about self-love in her own life. Get out a pen because you might want to add these to your summer reading list. Hi! I’m Lecy and I…

The Book Lovers Tag

Hello, everyone! I have been seeing this tag post pop up everywhere lately and I thought I would give it a go. Why you may ask? Well because if there is one thing I like almost as much as reading it’s writing. So why not write about reading. You feel me?   Do you have a specific place for reading? My favorite place to read is in the cabin, with little distraction I can read a book in one weekend if it is chilly outside. So peaceful. Bookmarks or random pieces of paper? Bookmarks.  I have a few books…

June Goals

It is finally June! Can you believe it?

May Goals

Guys is it just me or did April freaking fly? Seriously where did this month go? It has been a kind of blah April for moi I must admit, my mood, the weather. It has just been blah. Not bad, just blah. I am still patiently waiting for spring days to inspire my soul, it has been a slow process up here in this icy windy land I call home. I guess all those dresses I keep buying will have to keep waiting for their time to shine. Anyway, I am excited and a little underprepared to head into May…

March Goals

Hello, everyone! I am excited to be writing this post! The last monthly goals post I wrote was in March of 2016. Woah time flies! I wanted to get back into the swing of writing these little monthly goals posts because while I was looking at last years posts I felt rather nostalgic to see the plans and things I was up to back then. These kinds of posts are not only a great way to hold yourself accountable but also fun to look back upon. So seeing how March 1st is the traditional beginning of the new year I…
