I read this quote the other day and decided to make it my motto:
“Gratitude turns what we have into enough”
It’s so easy to WANT isn’t it? I wish I had more money, or better clothes, or a bigger house, or longer legs, or a softer mattress (true!). Wanting, complaining, and comparing comes so naturally! Why is it so much harder to just be thankful? When I step back and see all the things my life is blessed with, I realize life has been pretty good to me. And really, the things I like to complain about are so insignificant in the bigger picture. Yes, life comes with it’s up and downs…confidence and worries….strengths and insecurities. But to have a home to live in and an incredible husband by my side and little baby girl on the way….there is much to find joy in these days, and I am filled with gratitude.

This lemon-lime and tomato red has got to be one of my favorite summer color combos. This skirt is the most comfortable thing I own at the moment and allows some breathing room for my big ol belly. I found this top probably five years ago at a thrift store and have only worn it once before. Why not bust out the crop top again while I’m pregnant? Haha! I would have never guessed, but I liked it paired with the length of the skirt and my “belly accessory”. I am in fact quite proud to be a soon-to-be momma! My silver necklace was gifted to me by my sweet sister in law, Hannah, who found it on one of her thrifting sprees (she lives in Boulder, CO and is actually just a month behind me in her first pregnancy!). She owns / runs an online vintage store on Etsy called RUBY SUE VINTAGE. Be sure to stop by. It is full of great odds and ends for your home. Have a lovely weekend!
