Life really is better that way.

“A mushroom walks into a bar, bartender says ‘I’m sorry but we dont serve your kind here.’ The mushroom says ‘Why not, I’m a fungi?'”

Hahah…. That’s one of my most favorite jokes. πŸ˜‰

Remember to laugh today.

Favorites Friday: Explore

Happy happy happy Friday peeps!

Oh goodness it’s been a long week, and I am so glad that the weekend is here! Especially because my Buddie, Rach, has come for a visit and we’re going to have tons of fun the next couple days.

I have only one thought for you today:

Borrowed from the lovely folks over at Natural Life

Remember to explore… the summer days, weekend moments, the big grand adventure of life! I am cheering you on!

Favorites Friday :: Bookplates

I realized the other day that I adore bookplates.

They really are brilliant.

My mom had this really old set of the Chronicles of Narnia and they had really darling bookplates in the front that her grandmother had given to her. The book also were old and yellowed and smelled like adventure. Maybe that’s why I love bookplates, because I associate them with Narnia and that heavenly book smell.

Anyway, I found this at Anthropologie the other day and thought them perfectly darling, so my mom bought them for me because she loves me. πŸ˜‰

The colors are fantastic, and it even has one of my favorite C.S. Lewis quotes.

Image

I adore the script font.

Image

It even has a typewriter! Love… love… love…

Now I just have to make myself open the package. πŸ˜‰

Anyway, this made my heart smile and I thought I would share it with you. Remember to smile at the little silly things this weekend… oh, and happy Friday. πŸ™‚

Stay beautiful,

Your life is an adventure and those who risk win.Β Dont waste anything on a ‘darn shame’ because you were playing it safe.

Be Courageous.

Favorite Friday’s {Baseball, America & Freedom}

Last weekend I attended my first baseball game at the Rangers stadium in Arlington, Texas.

I think I actually like baseball… well, for an hour and a half anyway. That’s how long Rach and I were there and then we had to leave to meet someone. πŸ˜‰

There’s something very American about baseball. Baseball, apple pie, freedom, and red, white and blue. I like America. Tonight I was explaining ‘freedom of speech’ to my little sister, how some countries dont have it like we do, and how blessed we really are.

I like freedom, and I like Saturday’s that include road trips and best friends and new experiences and sunshine and lots of laughs and smiles. That’s what America is to me, freedom to enjoy all of life’s little blessings and adventures, and tonight I am inexpressibly grateful for it.
