Daily Inspiration

Wild by Cheryl Strayed

If you haven’t read Wild by Cheryl Strayed yet, get yourself to your Kindle stat! I promise you’ll breeze right through it. I can’t tell you enough how special this memoir is…and I don’t even really like outdoorsy things. It’s one of the most inspiring stories I’ve ever read. We’ll actually be discussing it tonight at book club (what a novel concept!) and I can’t wait to hear what my friends thought about it.

Side note, Anthropologie has some beautiful scarves right now! Like this explorer scarf above or this one I bought this weekend. Perfect for my much-anticipated summer to fall transition.

Hearts and Minds

“It’s going to sound silly, I know, but I think that what it all comes down to is winning hearts and minds. Underneath everything else, all the plans and goals and hopes, that’s why we get up in the morning, why we believe, why we try, why we bake chocolate cakes. That’s the best we can ever hope to do: to win hearts and minds, to love and be loved.”

- A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg

I seriously could write a whole book about how much I loved this book. It meant so much to me at this time in my life. But for now, I’ll just start with one of my favorite passages…which really says so much…so much that I can’t say myself.

Also, I will also post the recipe of the above chocolate cupcakes (which do bring so much joy) soon too.
