north star

“don’t dwell on who let you down, cherish those who hold you up.”

happy monday, friends!
i hope everyone had too much fun and got plenty of rest this weekend. 🙂 {i think it’s possible to do both!}
when monday rolls around, my mind always flashes 2 thoughts –
1. maybe i can call in sick and no one will care {this is not true, since my mondays are filled with a zillion meetings, but i try and convince myself!}
2. one more hour of sleep couldn’t hurt! 
so to help beat these monday blues, i’ve peppered a few bright and hopeful pieces in my kitchen. they instantly brighten up the morning and have me dreaming big…and i thought i’d share these with my favorite friends, too 🙂

    Catching up with all of your lovely posts… I truly believe in the 3rd quote – life is about creating yourself! Here’s to “creating” someone we can be proud of!!

    I certainly felt the pain of Monday this morning-I tried to reset the alarm (just a few more minutes!) and ended up knocking over an open (how did that happen?) bottle of nail polish! Oye!

    I like the dream quote. I definitely need to wake up to a purpose every morning. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
