Valentine’s Day is for everyone! Let us be reminded that we should all love one another. We should all love the world around us and we should all love ourselves. Because loving ourselves allows us to truly love one another! Let us carry the spirit of Valentine’s Day with us EVERYDAY!! ❤
Bohemian and Independent styles have been all the rage in bridal for a while now. One of the greatest advantages of that is that you can find a gorgeous wedding dress well under the $200 range!! And that means you can spend the extra cash you save on other wedding festivities!
Its love letter Wednesday again. And this week I just want to share how easy it is to spread a little joy. You don’t have to write long elaborate letters in envelopes, you can just write a sentence on a note card.
I was in TJMaxx the other day and I saw this really pretty wrapping paper! Which was actually a great thing because I was trying to think of an excuse to buy it which reminded me that my sisters birthday was coming up!! So after wrapping her presents I didn’t want to waste the scraps.
So I just glued the note cards onto the scrap and then cut the note cards off after writing my love notes!
I like to keep a couple note cards in my bag at all times, you never know when a good time to spread a little love will come along!
Remember if you have instagram to share your love letters: #IOWAMLoveLetters 🙂
September’s Wishlist is all about setting good intentions and looking toward the future! I absolutely love the Honey Bee Calendar from Anthropologie and am always swooning over the jewelry from Tiny Devotions!
Dear Moms, We all are beautiful. We are all important. As mother’s we have a very special role to play. Unfortunately a lot of us get so caught up in this role that we forget about us and become only artist, writer, rock climber, yogi, MOM. Let me re-instill a fact, that I’m sure we all know deep down to be true. That our most important gift to our children is sharing with them our lives and our love. A happy fulfilled role model is better than an unsatisfied mother who feels resentment for giving up her dreams. Juggling children and hobbies, isn’t always easy but we don’t have to feel guilty. You can still be that fun loving person you were before baby. So you were a wild and crazy party girl?? Okay, so you may need to put away the sequin mini skirts and keg stands every night 😛 But you can still be your care-free, energetic self. Just a more kid friendly version of it. If you love to paint or write. Invite your children to join you. Never give up on your dreams. Never give up on who you are. Share your interest and hobbies with your children. Share your love. Mother will always be your number one title, but remember you can also be artist, writer, rock climber, yogi, whatever your heart desires….. ❤
I believe it is our one true purpose. The art of letter writing is becoming a thing of the past and I find that really sad. The emotions behind written words can change someones life forever. Love letters don’t have to be just for your significant other or lost love. Love letters should be for everyone; your neighbor, the mail man, a stranger….
Many of you may have seen a form of this other places on the internet. But here is my version. Love Letter Wednesdays. Where I’ll share the love letters I write and hope that you will join in spreading the love with me. Because we all know the world could use a little more love.
Here’s an example of a love letter I’ve written in the past:
Later today, I’ll be writing my first online love letter, to all the beautiful moms out there ❤
And remember you can always share your love letters with us on instagram: #IOWAMLoveLetters

The sky is my inspiration for almost every creative endeavor I embark on. I love to take tons and tons of photos of the sky and then study the cloud patterns. When painting most of the colors I use are colors that are found in the skies.
