Just looking at this (and reading Anna’s post) is really inspiring to me. I make a lot more layouts than hard-backed books. But this might

Books to Read
wow. I just realized how accurate this was and because I am being adhd right now it got me to thinking about plot lines where the main character is able to see the death date of every single person she meets, when she meets them, just by looking at them. I really wanted to read that story but anyway, I'm getting off topic. This was a sort of (really) eye-opening post.
This is just one of the many hilarious photos from Awkward Family Photos. I giggle at a lot of them, but this one really got me. Whatever he is packing between his legs is more disturbing than the battle ax. Gave me quite the laugh.
A Guide to Wearing Makeup at the Gym - Yes, I wear makeup to work out and no, I’m not ashamed. I’m not talking red carpet level looks or, like, serious contouring, but just a little something to make me feel like a more pulled together version of myself. Now that I’m turning 30, I find I have to (and want to!) spend much more time exercising than I used to, so I might as well look good doing it. Plus, there are a lot of mirrors at the gym.
Library in a loft... I might do this the opposite way though- with the books on the bottom and the reading nook on top. Books are really heaving to be storing above my head. Just saying.
THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD EVERYONE SHOULD TRY IT!! I LOVED! It's after Eon and it dives right into the story! It doesn't stop in the beginning AT ALL! It starts to slow a bit towards the middle but it's still interesting. I like this book A LOT more than Eon, but both fantastic! They only thing that might bug me is *SPOILER* that we don't know what happens with Eona & Kygo's relationship *END SPOILER* But yes! If you haven't read Eon, do it and then come back and please try to read Eona!
“I understand I missed out on ten years but my brain is fried, do I really need to read all of these journals on foreign policies tonight? Most of this is new to me too but we still have three more left we had planned for today. … I’d much rather just study you.. mhmm… likewise dear… but first we finish this at least!” Belle would definitely make sure Adam’s all up to date and prepared to rule his kingdom. by Taija [so cute!!!]
Gray and mustard bridal party. After looking at a bunch of pics I'm leaning more modern than this, but I feel less and less inclined to
Reading- I just love reading books. It makes me feel as if I'm not so alone and there are people that are like me. Reading helps me run off to a fantasy land when I'm feeling really bad ._. Even though I have not really read books of my choice lately, I already have my list of summer reading books c: wooh.
This DIY marble run is really easy to make and might just be away for you to enjoy a cuppa!!
This is a photo of the first Black girl to attend an all white school in the United States—Dorothy Counts—being jeered and taunted by her white, male peers. This photo encompasses a lot of things that I really hate: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality…but it also encompasses strength, determination, inspiration. // I just wanna slap those boys behind her. But that asshat in the tie? He needs so much more than slapping.
fashion that speaks to me
I really enjoyed this book. It's hard for me to find books I enjoy, but this was one of them!
Teaching young children mindfulness is a lot easier and more fun than one might think. As an early childhood therapist, I adapt and find ways to make social and emotional lessons more creative and ...
“I don’t joke when I say she is my better half. She truly is. I cannot believe what a fantastic life I have today. But here’s the thing, she didn’t change me at all. She just gave me an ultimatum at a certain point. Ultimately, we both changed a lot so that now I can’t ever imagine a life before her. I’ve certainly come to believe that Mrs. Downey and I together are definitely better than me alone or me and anybody else.”
I know this is considered "unhealthy" but a lot of the time the world I'm reading about feels more genuinely real than the world I'm living in.

I love my Kindle but there's just something about holding a book, and looking at a bookshelf full of books that makes me happy
I have been hurt most of my life by people I thought loved and cared about me. It hurts even more when they refuse to admit their wrong and try to make things right. It took me long enough to realize that they meant more to me than I did to them. It may take me time to heal but I will get passed it all because my life and my happiness does mean something to me. Just one day at a time.
So...I read it because just about every 4th & 5th grader I know has read it/is reading it. And they love it...which means, more often than not, I'm going to love it too. Which I did. I might have loved it even more had I not already known how great "Wonder" is from all the rave reviews, but nonetheless, such a great book with well-written, multi-dimensional characters. If you haven't already heard, it's about kindness, friendship, and an
CONTINUED= What do I think the problem...I think it might have something to do with a weakness in my lungs or chest....a while back I took some creatine and for a few days my breathing improved...but now I think I'm past that.. I did have a hiatial hernia before..but I assumed that was fixed....a positive mentality is hard to maintain but at least this wasn't of my choosing...I really wanted to succeed,
Make-Your-Own Bouillon Cubes I am always looking for ways to make things easier on me, yet still eat healthy. The answer of course is homemade convenience foods. Before transitioning over to a Traditional diet, we used a LOT of bouillon cubes. But those things are so high in MSG, that now, I can’t remotely justify using them. I [...] Continue Reading →
Arianna Huffington is no doubt an extrovert, but her new book #THRIVE has a lot of great takeaways for anyone looking to define "success" and "happiness" in this busy, louder-than-ever decade. After finishing Thrive, I made this #infographic as just a way to remember some of Huffington's "tiny, daily" tips for improving life. #Meditation #Mindfulness
Painting on books. I would make a happier looking person...but still a really cool idea!
DIY Kite really, designing and creating your own kite is a lot more fun than buying it. I used to make mine out of old grocery bags and long bamboo sticks. So fun!
Wow! I make more than 30,000 but reading this tips reminds me how foolish I am spending my money. I love the tips. If I spend less I can save more for my retirement and pay off my house earlier. Great Post!
Do remember getting to know yourself in the mirror when you were a kid? I do, standing on the livingroom sofa, just like this little girl. I loved looking at myself. No selfies in those days! But the truth is it is wholesome and normal to want to spend time looking at ourselves! So don't be surprised to find your little one looking in a mirror! Don't make fun of her, rather compliiment her and walk away. This is her personal time!
I like to choose to be alone, and even if this is asking a lot from people, I just want people to wish I WASN'T alone. But being alone gives me time to talk to myself, read, write, etc
So it turns out we're getting married
I can smell the salt and feel a warm breeze just looking at this picture. Don't know where it is, but I'd like to be there.
My boys are getting too old to share a room but I still need a guest room so I am looking for ideas... I just really like this room. Might not work well for guests though.
“Buying books is immensely comforting. Maybe I won’t read them immediately, but they make me feel so much better whenever I’m sad and blue. Just their presence, it’s like having more to look forward to." - Unknown
