Quotable Week No. 2 | Blog's Birthday GIVEAWAY of Some of My FavoriteThings

Happy Wednesday Darlings!

I've had an intense couple of days, but today I am a tad overjoyed because this week marks this blog's

FIRST

 birthday. I am so thankful for each and every one of you that faithfully reads this blog and encourages me with your friendly comments. Above all, I'm thankful for the community of creatives that I've met and hopefully will keep meeting and connecting with. 

Also, on Monday I failed to share my second post of Twittable quotes, so here they are for you to tweet away.  

As this blog's first birthday approaches I am celebrating this week in two ways. First, I have written two photography articles (and here) to share some things that I have learned along the way and that you may find helpful and maybe even interesting. Second, I am hosting a GIVEAWAY that you can sign up for at the end of this post.

Without further ado, here are some of my favorite quotes that inspired me this  past weekend. 

At the end of my days I do not wish to look back on my life and see that I was always there but never "present"- Valerie (Tweet it)

"It is wonderful what you can do when you have to."  C.S. Lewis (Tweet it)

"The difference between winners and losers is that winners kept playing until they won" - Kathryn Jackson (Tweet it)

I liked these quotes because they encourage me to be successful, to press on. However, I don't want to achieve anything in this world at the cost of the most important relationships in my life. As a result, I am presently in the middle of a big media intake assessment, trying to decide how I will diminish that. I will certainly share the journey with you.

G I V E A W A Y   CLOSED

The best way to say thank you to some of you that started following this blog from the very beginning and to you, new readers is to offer a giveaway with some of my favorite things. You have seen them photographed in different blog posts, and Instagram pictures because these are truly beautiful items that I use in my personal life.

May | My Coups de Coeur


hello Darlings,

Yes! Believe it or not May is ending, but it is not leaving us without great memories. I have been reading great monthly wrap ups from many other bloggers and so I am starting one this month as an extension of that. I have my own "goodies" that I have discovered during the month and I will share them with you at the end of each month from now on.  

Without further ado, here is a grid of my favorite May snapshots.



1 | My feed has one weekly food snapshot of some sort and it's usually breakfast because we eat breakfast at any time of the day. 

2 | Yes, I did an entire photo shoot just to feature my new kimono. I love the colors so much and I have to keep myself from wearing it constantly. I got mine from Forever 21. 

3 | This month I hosted a jewelry party for the amazing company called 31 Bits. I am in love with not only their products but also their mission and what they stand for. If you are looking to add a pop of color to your wardrobe this summer and simultaneously help change people's lives, check them out!

4 | This picture was the one featured in Darling Magazine's Instagram feed. That magazine just happens to be one of my favorites. I just love the community they have built around it. If you want to know why I took that picture you can read more about it on my Instagram

5 | Yep, that little person in the pink dress is me! I got to stand in that awesome place in front of the Cabo Rojo light house at the South Western tip of Puerto Rico. My husband took me to the dreamiest location to celebrate our anniversary (I will share all the pictures next week). I am in love with this place (and with the man obviously), as a matter of fact, I wanted to stay there!

6 | To many, 1 year of marriage is nothing but we are so happy that I may or may not have overgram pictures of us and our wedding. In any case, we are so blessed to have each other and though we lived many scary adventures this year, it still feel like it flew by. 



:: Other exciting Features ::

Ministry She Reads truth, which I have written about many times, used my photography to illustrate one of their Bible reading plans and I was so honored that they asked. 

Also, thanks to project Pick it (an Instagram feed that dedicates itself to share other people's stories and unique moments) for featuring  the picture of my sister and I. 

♥ Discovered this awesome blog post (Wonder and wandering) and the blogger has become my pen pal (if you can call email communication that). She is sweet and we just feel like we are friends already. 

Hosted my first Twitter #lbloggers Chat this past Wednesday and met so many awesome bloggers. Our topic was "What makes a blogger Inspirational?"- I am in love with words so doing a word check during the chat was awesome. Join the chat on Wednesdays at 2:00 PM (EST) or 7:00 PM (UK)

Two great ladies passed away this month. One was an unknown hero and a friend of mine the other was Maya Angelou. Here is a guide to her most beloved books. 

♥ Instagram crush lately...

♥ I am not sure what people did with short videos before this one, but I don't want to know

♥ I am itching to try this genius Ikea hack!

♥ This blog is new to me, and I have to admit that I have spent an unhealthy amount of time swooning  (probably more like drooling) over this blogger photography and actually reading her funny captions and posts. Well done! 

♥ I am obsessed with Garance Doré's collaboration paper products with Anna Riflebond. I got quite a few items already and I am now looking forward to her wallpaper

Studied the book of James this whole month and still feel like I can continue, I participated in the #lampandlight reading challenge (on Instagram) this month and I gained so much from it. 



What are you excited about? Please share the link to your monthly wrap ups, or weekly if you have them or feel free to simply comment about what you are up to.
