Linking up with the Style Me sistas today to blog about the things that inspire us. I love this topic, because as I get older, I've come to realize that something inspires me almost every day. Some days I have to look a little harder, but it's there.
--Being outside. No matter what, I can always get inspiration by simply going outside. Every morning, except in the very worst weather, I spend at least a few minutes on my deck. I love to breathe in the fresh air, listen to the birds or rain, and think about the day ahead. If only I enjoyed coffee, this little scene would be perfect. And having my deck at the beach would be even more perfect.
--Doing volunteer work. Both the people who need a little help, and those that are doing the helping inspire me. There are some truly amazing things being done in this world through the hands of volunteers. It's awe-inspiring, actually.
--The family and friends in my daily life. My grandparents, my mom, my husband, my boys, my friends. Every one of them are strong, kind and loving. There's nothing more inspiring than that.
Speaking of which, this is the last link up from the Style Me Bloggers as we've come to know them. It's been my privilege to meet and work with this great group of women. We've grown and evolved together, and made lasting friendships. But don't worry - it's not over! I'm excited to announce that we'll be back later this year with a new collective called The Blended Blog. We'll be writing about a wide range of topics, and hopefully adding guest posters as we go along. More to come soon!
In the meantime, be sure to check out the other ladies to see what inspires them, and link up with us below.
