Dream Big. ✨


Dream big. Have you ever had a dream of something you wanted to do, but you still haven’t ever done it? I’m, unfortunately, one of the biggest offenders of that. Somethings I’ll work toward and achieve big milestones, but somethings- the things that I am the most excited about I put off for some reason. 

I find myself coming up with subconscious excuses like- I don’t have time/money for that right now. (You could always say that.) I’ll start that project next year. (Next year will never come.) I don’t know how I would even get started. (Hey there’s this cool thing called Google.com) I’d have to reach out to other people. (Cool. You get to build more relationships.) Or even worse… what if no one likes what I do? (Who cares?) What if I am not good at it? (As long as you’re improving, you’ll be growing and that will make you happy!)

My mom gave me this cute little sign for Easter this year. I brought it with me to California not only because it’s pink and gold, but also because I hope it reminds me to throw all of those excuses out the window and start doing the things I’ve told myself my whole life that I’ve wanted to do! The more I think about what I haven’t done that I’ve always wanted to do, the longer the list gets… but it’s exciting!

Does anyone else have this problem? Or is it just me? What excuses do you tell yourself and how did you or how do plan to get over it?

We always have the most fun dressing up & this photoshoot was no exception. Mia let me borrow her cute Girl Power shirt! It’s adorbs, huh!? And I’ve always loved her sparkly polka dot shirt from J. Crew.

Okay so all my life, I have been a shirt person. Well like, everyone wears shirts, but I mean when it comes to shopping, I’ve always instinctively bought shirts only. I can never find pants that I like and that fit me. But that has totally been a different story for both me and my sister these past few months.  All we find ourselves looking at is new cool denim or some fun pants! Not complaining, it’s just weird. I’ve complied some cute denim below under $25.

Also, I am now on my way to a long awaited vacation with my family this weekend. Any guesses where we are going?!

Love y’all!

XOXO,

Hope everyone had a great April! Time seriously flies so quickly. Sometimes I’m fine with that, but most the time, I try to hold on.

Speaking of time, Trent (my sweet little brother) gets home in 3.5 months. It’s almost been 2 years since I’ve seen him. He’s been serving the Lord down in Chile- his first time away from home was Chile. I’m so proud of his sacrifice he has made. He could have been attending college for 2 years already, but he chose to put others above himself & serve the Lord. We have received blessings for his service, but we absolutely cannot wait until he comes home to us!

Also, it’s my cute sister’s birthday this week! ? I miss her so much. Anyone who knows her knows how fun, thoughtful, and caring she is. She’s also beautiful & I love her! She is my little twin. It seems like just yesterday that she was born. I’m so happy she came to this Earth & that I get to be sisters with her. Happy birthday, Meme! ?

I can’t wait to celebrate with her when I see her next. ???

XOXO,
