There is a light inside of all of us, a beauty deep within… something so special that the world needs to see and feel.  Regardless of current circumstances, hardships, and disappointments, find a way to “shine on.” In my opinion it is easy to smile and shine brightly when everything is good… It takes courage to choose hope, joy and gratitude when things are difficult.  I have nothing real earth shattering to share today, except, keep on shining.  Let the world know around you that you are light… You choose light and choose to shine in the midst of any darkness.

I feel lots of joy today! Simply because today is my Friday and we have a really packed, fun weekend planned!! Ben is off the entire weekend which is a gift to us! Friday we go to our kids new school and meet the teachers, then I lead worship at a local church. Later on that evening we have dinner reservations at Ella Dining Room with some good friends of ours! We have been doing an annual dinner there with them for the past 3 years! On Saturday I plan on taking a yoga class with my friend Kat and then the farmers market in town with the fam! Saturday afternoon we head to Macy’s for a back to school event hosted by The Lipstick Giraffe at the Arden Mall followed by family night/ movie night! Family night is typically on Friday’s but it is getting hijacked this week! Sunday is FULL of adventures in SF! Be sure to follow along on my Insta-stories for all the deets!! Thank you so much for stopping by the blog!!

    I am absolutely in love with this tassel trend. Your dress is adorable and I love how you paired the soft blue of the dress with the bright pop of yellow in the house. SO cute!!

    Love the message of shining on no matter the circumstance. It can be so hard to keep being the light in difficult situations, but we are called to be the light in the world no matter what! Thanks for sharing this message, and of course that dress is just so pretty on you!
