doors close. people change. don't be afraid of change, be afraid of becoming stagnant. 

We closed on our house and I thought about how that little house brought me some pretty great things... the best being my husband! (he moved across the street 6 years ago, and that's how we met)

I didn't exactly FEEL like walking outside on a chilly Saturday morning, but I knew it would make Ruby's life. It was the perfect way to start the weekend!

embrace what is. 

When we woke up to a bunch of snow this morning, I thought about how every day, we have a choice. Embrace what is, or complain about it. I've said it before, but complaining about anything makes it SO much worse, and it sends such negative vibes to you and everyone around you. Why do you want to do that???? I just thought about how pretty the fresh snow was, and how lucky I was to be away for the weekend in a beautiful place with my friends. I walked by a whole bunch of old ladies who were miserable and complaining, and I just smiled at them, hoping that someday they would get it.
