Daily Dose Of Beautiful Images





“When I was younger, I saw 20-somethings sitting at coffee shops and thought they must be so happy now that they’re older and have their lives together. Now I’m the 20-something and I see that life doesn’t slow down and fall into place just because you’re old enough. Being older just means that you have to make time to stop and enjoy that coffee.”

Take one, leave one

I’ve discovered recently that if you say you love reading or books and you find yourself in a place where you’re asking “I want to read a book, anyone have any suggestions?”.. You don’t love books. Anyone that I know who truly loves words arranged in chapters, arranged in beautiful works has stacks upon taller stacks of books awaiting them. You must first be a collector of the knowledge you would love to obtain. You will never find yourself wise without first being passionate. So from now on, don’t ask someone what to read, read anything. Go into a library or a bookstore and give yourself time to leave with a book (or multiple books) that you’re truly excited to dive into. If you didn’t love it, read it again. You may have missed your very favorite line. Write in the back. Underline your favorite quotes. Never underestimate the power of words in your life. Now, if you bought the book, take care of it and love it. If you got the book from the library, leave a (tiny) note, smaller than a post-it somewhere in the middle for the next reader to find. Tell them your favorite line. Remember* the librarians check for things in the book, so you must make it small. Never return a book without picking up another one. Before you know it you’ll love books. And you’ll be the one handing out suggestions and copies to your peers. Never be afraid to give a book away. A good friend of mine, Miss Borders taught me this lesson. I used to hold on very tightly to every last book I got my hands on.. But really, it’s not your’s to keep. If you love it, let it go; If it’s fate, it will find its way back to you.

“Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best, and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who just bring out the most. Of everything. They make you feel so alive that you’d follow them straight into hell, just to keep getting your fix.”

Karen Marie Moning, Shadowfever  (via thatkindofwoman)


You know, as a kid
I never thought I could rule the world
Maybe that was the problem
I was never princess of the castle in my dreams
I never conquered great mountains of pillows and stuffed lions
I was content reading my books and discovering my true love
The only obstacles I overcame in my make believe were ones of my dear Juliet
And I always found my love
Somehow I wasn’t wired to overcome the biggest things
I was created to support those with the biggest swords and the biggest armor
As I’m older, I find myself in that same mindset
I have no huge dreams or specific initiative
I’m only looking to find my Romeo and make sure he’s not dumb enough to die on my watch
God plans your beginning, but your choices determine how it ends
So either conquer the castle or be the most noble steed you can be
Both are equally as important

I have had so much adventure with Scott lately. Any moment we can grab together is a new moment I treasure. He’s the most silly, most loving, most joyful soul that there could be. I’m so thankful he’s alive and mine :)
