Friday Favorites

friday Favorites

There have been so many times in my life that I’ve put off something because I didn’t have the money, didn’t have the skills or didn’t think I could figure it out myself. My mind convinces me that if I just hold off someone will come along who can do it for me. I’ve learned time and time again that there is always something I can do if I just start. Sure I might get to a point that I absolutely can’t get to the next step but what could it hurt to get a little bit closer?
Just start.
Start somewhere.
I’m still pretty amazed by what was possible as a single mom living in my parents garage (it had carpet and AC:) Every step I took got me closer to the next and so many things that at that point seemed impossible, turned out to be just a few leaps of faith away.

These temporary flower tattoos are soooo pretty, I’m not sure how/why I would wear one, but I want to find a way/reason

Avocado Caprese Chicken Salad. Perfect summer dinner.

Anthropologie is having a pretty big sale, these beauties stuck out to me:

This candle holder is SO gorgeous

Prettiest skirt

I love barretts and this one is so delicate and lovely

Have a good weekend, I’m headed to Colorado for my cousin’s wedding. (I’ll instagram the photos of her makeup when we’re done! She’s beautiful!)

    I’ve actually bought these tattoos to play around with to see where I wanted my real one. They are so beautiful.

    You are so right, you have to start somewhere! I usually feel overwhelmed when I think I can’t do what I would like or what I need, but I’m working on that and on never stop trying!
