Inspiration is everywhere

Good Morning...
I wanted to share some of the quotes that inspire me. I hope these might inspire you too..
I think this is very important! I'd rather have quality time with a small group, then quanity with a big group. I also try to be careful and spend time with people who really "lift" me up.
Being sad sometimes is normal, but I try and not dwell on the sadness and look to the happiness of life:)

EVERYONE has a talent.
This is is not set in stone, you have the ability to change it all up at any moment!YAY!!!

Isn't it always the simplest of things that make you happy? A cup of coffee, a book to read, laughter from the kids,a kiss from the husband=1 HAPPY life
"Where laughter falls like lemon drops"

This is how I live my life now...It can be a bit daunting at times, but I am loving every second.

I'm dreaming of a white kitchen....

I'm getting ready to start the process of picking out the "look" of our 3rd house...I am a color person and have always chosen color for walls but right now I'm thinking of being a bit dramatic and doing an all white house(paint) and just popping the color in with pillows, bedding, linens, art..   Here are some pictures of what I'm liking for the kitchen thus far. White..hmmm..really liking it.
love the pops of red!
definetly going to be doing white subway tile
love, love the doors!
