There's been a lot flying around internet these days about how we need to stop Social-Media-ing our
obviously not perfect life. Because let's be real. We all know that the dirty laundry gets shoved out of the shot when you want to snap that squishy, baby-face moment. Seriously. Do you really think my kitchen isn't in constant state of The Good Clean Vs. The Evil Dirty?! I digress.
"Instagram is not the enemy. Facebook is not the enemy. Pinterest is not the enemy. They can't make us covet, envy, compare or be jealous..."
We become our own enemy by allowing the beauty in other's lives to remind us of what we don't have, rather than encouraging us to celebrate our own unique and precious life. And as my perspective shifts, I begin to find myself inspired and encouraged.
So in the spirit of inspiration, I thought I would share some of my favorite places on the web. These are the places where I am reminded about the beauty of love and family. The places where I am inspired to dream, to do, to live. The places that remind me that the joys of life far outweigh the sadness. The places that flesh out the words of Mary Oliver --
Tell me what you plan to do with your one wild and and precious life?!

Now you should be all tanked up with a weekend full of good reads! (You can pay me later.) Prepare to be inspired. But only if you allow yourself to be. And then take all that love and let it spill over into your real life. To your friends. To your man. To your babies. To your home.
And of course I have to ask, what places inspire you the most?! Maybe a blog, an Instagram feed, an author. I'd love to know!!

Of course this little face inspires me everyday. I literally get quivery inside sometimes. So thankful we have such a precious soul living in our home.
