You know those really cool, hand-lettered, framed quotes that everyone has these days? They’re telling you to (like the photo above) enjoy the little things, be adventurous, live, laugh, love. Well, I love them! I love words. I love art. So, it’s a beautiful combination.
When the girls were pregnant, I wanted to get all the signs I saw so they could put them up in the nursery. But I held back. But in my heart, there were signs all over their rooms.
Then, my son, who is so funny, said something to the effect of, “I don’t want a bunch of those signs in my son’s room because it’s kinda stressful. He’ll get up every day with all this direction and demands and advice.”
I laughed because when you think about it, it is kind of stressful. They’re good reminders, don’t get me wrong. And I love them. But if you think about it, you are surrounding yourself with constant direction.
You wake up and read, “Be Adventurous!” Then you read, “Run Wild My Child.” Then, “There’s no place like home.”
Do I go or do I stay???
Just a funny thought. I still love the signs, though.
Have a great weekend!
