pretty words 600

i’m grateful for crushes – reading this makes the romantic side of me freak out. pretty, pretty words about crushes. that’s all i’ve got to say! go read it!

audrey – okay, so this isn’t really words, but a beautiful photo of audrey hepburn, who i absolutely adore. she’s pretty much the epitome of class.

lucid evolving – about being open and happy and not being the one thing standing in your way anymore.

burning in a year that speaks mostly of drowning – heartfelt words about creating joy from within and continuing to fight through life.

and then last, but not least, this is something i pinned on pinterest an eternity ago, but i think about it from time to time, because, come on, holy gorgeous words!…

gracefully changing… – a thought-provoking piece about embracing the inevitable and accepting change.

uncaptured candids – lovely words about beautiful, untouched memories.

why i shouldn’t be left alone on a saturday night – reading this made me laugh, since i definitely relate to those sorts of evenings when i’m left alone!

an open letter to my one-day-sunday-someone – meg fee again, and i think the title perfectly explains the post!

on literary risk – the sacrifice of character – interesting thoughts on over-used, extreme characters, and how the normal stories of normal people are just as worth telling.

i already blogged today (check it out! >>> sweet pork and sky), but i also wanted to do a roundup of posts that i love from other bloggers. {p.s. if you’re doing the zero to hero challenge, this is my completion of day 23!} this ended up being so enjoyable that i might even make this little roundup a weekly thing!

all of these posts are fantastic, as are the great people who wrote them, soooo you should get to clicking on those links and checking them out!

i’m not gonna tell you that you’re beautiful – hannah brencher is a wonderful, wonderful writer, so i should really just link to her entire blog, but this is an especially lovely post about feeling adequate.

faith – a fantastic post about continuing with faith, because things will get better.

attraction and expectation – another lovely piece by meg fee about feeling a spark. i especially love the end of the post about her own expectations.

on being a queen – such a beautiful post about being a mother by the fantastic natalie holbrook! (i talked about my blogger-obsession with her here, too!) even though i’m not even married yet, this heartfelt post is still so touching to read, and i absolutely cannot wait until i’m a mother.

throwback thursday #4 – chasing cars – a soft, quick little romantic story that just makes me happy!

i have that something with you – another little romantic tidbit! it reads so, so smoothly and is almost poetic.

on courage – a thoughtful piece with a different take on courage – the thought that courage is more related to kindness than actually being bold.

happy reading!
