THIS amazing candle from Anthropologie. It is a pretty penny for a giant pice of smelling wax but let me tell you..it is worth it!
Viva La Juicy. All day. Every day.
I love children's wild imaginations. As a child growing up in a giant orange orchard in the middle of clovis, california-I had an imagination that would make a crazy person feel sane. I used to build tree houses in our backyard and spent the days gazing up into the sky making shapes out of the clouds. I think my dream house may have looked a little something like this.
I hope my children have as much fun day dreaming as I had.
I love to dance! As a major in Music Dance Theater for a long time at BYU- I love theater and the arts. Music inspires me. Whether it's by movement, or song I'm thrilled by the sound of a beat. Broadway was not such a short lived dream for me. To this DAY my dream role would be Sandy on Grease. I think I would kill it. ;-)
I LOVE love letters. I'm such a sucker for sentiment. Give me a million dollars and an airplane and I'll give you a hug. Write me a love note and I'll love you forever.
which is probably why I'm so obsessed with this book...
I love this painting of the Savior. I don't know who did it, or when, or if it is really of any significant value to anyone other than myself, but I've always loved this picture of Jesus. It's so simple and so beautiful. I'll cherish it all the days of my life. It speaks me in ways no other art could. I love it.
If you haven't heard yet, I love my daughter. Hence the name of my photography business. It was built around her. She inspires me to be something bigger than myself on a daily basis. It is because of her that I have even pushed myself into doing photography. She gives me something new to look at. A different perspective every minute of every day. She's taught me more about life in a year and a half than anyone ever could have in 1,000 years. I love this girl. She will forever be my little baby.
Have you been to Sno On The Go in Mission Viejo???? Go. NOW. Get in your car and RUN. It is the most blessed experience you will have in a seriously long time.
Annnnd I love this guy. I love him, love him love him like the day is long. He makes me who I am. He completes me-just like Jerry Mcguire and I love him all the more for it. He is the last thing I want to see when I go to bed at night and the first thing I look for every morning. He is my day and my night. My good and my bad. I am everything with him, and nothing without him. He is my forever, and I love it.
If you haven't heard, Matilda Jane is the it and the all. If you ALSO haven't heard-I'm still holding an online trunk show until Sunday morning! You can't order this stuff online so if you see something you want-contact me before Sunday and I'll place your order (www.matildajaneclothing.com) It is seriously to die for. Take a peek.
Celine Dion is without question the greatest singer of all time. She has completely changed my life. I went to her concert a few years back and she brought me to tears. I'm obsessed, to say the least. ALthough she may seem a bit old school to a lot of people nowadays-her vocal talent is timeless. She's amaze.
I do not go a day without this jolly goodness on my ever thirsting lips. It may be a tad expensive for gloss you could probably pick up at your local grocery store for half the price-but still, I swear by it. Victoria's Secret beauty rush lip gloss. Own one.
I love wrinkles. I hate it when my mom pulls her face back and says "wouldn't I look better like this?" Of COURSE not mother dear. Wrinkles make us who we are. THey are the sings of happiness and joy. The more smiling-the more crevices and that is something beautiful to me. I love that people can wear their heart on their sleeve and their life of their faces. Whether it be happy or sad-life is a journey and the older we get the more we appreciate that. COming from a true rookie I don't know that I'm the expert on that-but I can't wait to be old and grey with my family by my side. That's what it's all about.
I heart wrinkles.
