Home Goods

These pictures weren't intended for a blog post.. but I figure why not? Home Goods has such cute things, for good prices! 

So cute! Considering I was in London a few months ago, I had to get this for my dog!

I always throw leftover food, banana peels, etc out for the deer to eat. However I don't have one of these "slop" bowls. I want it. 

                                          I love this type of "sketched" look! It seems very Italian to me..

These soaps smelled soo good! The Pecksniff's smelled like what they used in the bathrooms in London... makes sense.. considering it's an English brand. 

I love shattered-looking things. 

So chic


These chairs are very cute, although not so comfortable.

Time Flies

    August? Already? Where did summer go? Summer is my favorite season. I love everything about it- warm nights, lightning bugs, fruity drinks, and swimming in clear water. Too bad it seems to be the shortest season around here..
   This year has brought many changes and new experiences. From traveling 3 different countries to losing a loved one. I'm so thankful for the lessons I have learned and how much I have grown as a person. Things may not always go as we want or expect them too, but we must remember, God has a plan for us.

It's true that you tell the people you love everyday that you love them. This is especially hard for me because I'm not a very affectionate person.. but atleast make sure they know how much they mean to you! Spend as much time as you can with those close to you. Talk about their childhood, experiences, dreams, life lessons, ask them questions! I will never forget the things my mawmaw taught me & how she shaped who I am as a person. I'm so thankful I got to spend the time with her I did! I'm most definitely the most like her out of her grandchildren.. we had a special bond. So many memories that mean SOOO much to me... now I know she is in a better place, with all the people she always talked about, and of course, with God. 

Those memories will forever reside in my heart. I was blessed to have such a extremely loving, classy, thoughtful grandmother! RIP mawmaw Lynn. <3

Wake up everyday and consciously make an effort to make it the best day you can. When things get tough, always keep hope, because without it, we have nothing.
