  4. You have such great taste. I think soft colors and inspirational quotes inspires me. I'm addicted to pinterest right now, you can find so many inspiring quotes on there!

    How do you like the Q&A book? I'm thinking about ordering it

  6. These pictures look GREAT! I think order inspires me and makes me happy. I love seeing books perfectly lined up, pillows perfectly placed on a couch and picking out the perfect outfit. I feel like when things are in order – this crazy life around me isn't that bad. 🙂

    Great post!

  8. FMGD is always so visually stunning. Love it. I know I've told you before, but the fact that I'm always drawn to the things in your home and the clothes you wear makes me think I've been missing a piece of my own personal style. Love!
