One of my biggest fears is becoming stagnant. Not moving forward or pursuing anything and settling for a life that is not what I desire. To combat this fear, I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about ideas about life and everything that I want to see, hear, eat, do and explore lately.

I’m a big fan of Lara Casey’s downloads on her website. This photo of her’s is serving as the perfect inspiration to chase my dreams!
Happy Sunday y’all, let’s pick up where we left off!

With a few days of busy travel behind us, I was looking forward to lots of book and magazine reading time!
