Lots of fun, today!

Caleb's pup, Maggie.

Yesterday was my first OFFICIAL day at work. (although I've been there as a temp since February... they finally realized they can't live without me... duh...) & I stopped by Caleb's after work last night, and got there before him. When he pulled in the driveway I noticed he had something in his hands. It was a big bag with flowers sticking out, alllll for me! *sappy* my man treats me so well. The bag also featured a new mini umbrella, peppermint candy canes (my fav!) and a christmas mug! Woo!

gotta deal with iphone photography, its all I had ;

Linking up with the beautiful Lauren today for Tuesday Topics!!

Why did you start blogging? I started blogging because I want to be able to reach others with my stories; encourage others and make some new friends along this journey! I also think it will be cool when I'm old to look back in detail at my past.

What's something your readers know about you? That I like yellow, duhhh. Its totally alright, and encouraged, to wear it every day possible. Yes, even when its not in "season".

What can't you live without? My camera. I seriously use it every day. My DSLR, or my iphone. Love them both!

What inspires your blog posts? Lots of things. Sometimes by reading other ladies posts it sparks some sort of creativity in me. Or when things in my daily life happen and I want to put a positive spin on them.

What do you do when you feel uncreative? Pinterest, duh.

How has blogging changed you? It helps me to keep a positive spin on all things I blog about. Encouraging other women makes me happy. We are all beautiful, in our own way & I think its important to remember to let others know how awesome they are :)

What advice do you have for new bloggers? Well, technically, I'm still a "new blogger". I've only been doing this since September, and I've met some awesome ladies so far. I would just tell them to be THEM. Don't worry about blogging every little thing you do; remember to live in the moment. Remember that blogging is NOT a competition, its fun :)

What blogs inspire you? Quite a few ladies actually, but I'll just name a few. One of my FIRST blogger friends I made was Jillian at Faith That Laughs! This girl is not only adorable, but she loves the Lord with ALL of her heart and you can see it from the moment you check out her blog. She truly inspires me with her weekly reminders of why we are loved and worth it. Did I mention she has killer outfits AND posts adorable pictures of her baby nephew all the time!? If thats not enough, idk what is?!

Another is Helen over at Ah, thats love. She is so encouraging. The pictures she posts are BEAUTIFUL, elegant and so cute. I can see how much she, too loves God and her husband. They seem to always have the best times together. I'm so happy I stumbled upon her blog!

& lastly is my wonderful Erin, over at Love, Fun and Football. If you don't already know, she is my wonderful soon-to-be SIL! This girl already feels like the sister I never had. Her and her hubby (Caleb's brother) are our fav people to hang out with, game nights are our go-to double dates. She is always so encouraging of my choices and such an inspiration to look up too. Love you, Erin!

Happy Tuesday friends, do something crazy! ;)
