lady like life: recently



This is a little bit of a different post for me. You know, starting this blog was something that I always wanted to do. I wanted to make a place where my friends, family, and even strangers could come and read and hopefully enjoy something mindless and that takes little thought. So many times in life, we always have something on our mind or on our hearts and it's just so nice to come to a place and indulge in something that doesn't take a lot of thought, a lot of work, a lot of time, that's not super thought provoking, or super deep; I wanted somewhere that was simple, fun, and provided a little insight to somebody else's life, since we are most of the time so focused on our own. I think we all deserve that.

But I also want you to know that there's a deeper side to this blog as well. Even though I love clothes and love sharing them with you there's so much more to life, as you know. I think being married forces you to learn so much about life, but there's one thing I've been learning a lot of recently. And that's how to be thankful. I admit, it's hard for me to do consistently, especially since our world is all about getting more, more, more and getting better at everything. It took me a while to realize how ungrateful I really was being. But now, I love that our walls are empty and that since we've been married our dresser consist of a broken cardboard box and a few extra laundry baskets. I love that we chose adopting a sweet, fluffy kitten before we bought more home decor or furniture. I love that my husband spent $20 on two buffalo steaks, just so we could try something different. I'm thankful that Logan loves my cooking even though I burn the bottom of every single pot we have, which isn't many. I'm learning to be thankful for the little things like waking up early, coffee in the morning, nights at home with just us two, true friends, good weather, food on the table, and a roof over our head. We so easily forget about what we have because we are always so focused on what we want. To be honest, I struggle with it everyday and probably will always, but lately I've been making it a priority to be thankful for it all. I've come to see over and over that comparing your life and things to others or wishing you had more of something never produces happiness, it only makes you miserable. So here's to choosing to be thankful and happy...and actually having to think during this blog post today :)
