Oh, hello!

Some days I'm just better at appreciating life than others. Today I'm really appreciative of a lot of things. I understand their value, their beauty, their importance. It's like that little ray of sunshine. The fact that you have a family who loves you infinitely. A warm cup of coffee. Pink lipstick. A new day with new opportunities. Creativity. Hot french fries. Finding an inspiring book to read after years of 'meh.' Smiles from strangers, their lips just slightly turning up at the ends with that knowing smile.

I want to take the time from my busy life to look and glance and feel. To see what the eye is trained to look over and take advantage of. I want to live fully.

With much love, Lauren.

It's always good to slow down and appreciate the good things in life. It's hard when things get busy!
Anyway, I love this pretty spring outfit. Your olive blouse is wonderful underneath the pink sweater. Love this!
