Favorite Little Things

Good Morning!

Hallelujah for it being Thursday! I hope that this post finds you all having a great start to your day, as well as having a blessed week thus far. This has just been one of those weeks where I feel a little “off.” I did my makeup in the car again this morning, so you know I am not completely myself (I don’t recommend this). Starting my week off missing my family sort of put me in a somber mood which doesn’t bode well for my busy lifestyle. I work in an environment which we have to be up-beat at all times. We have to be alert, physically and mentally present, and positive 100% of our days. I strive to be this day in and day out, but this week I just feel a little drained.

But hey, this is just part of life, right? I have so much to be thankful for. Not only do I wake up everyday feeling healthy and motivated, but I also am surrounded by quality people who continually teach me new things and build me up. In return, I can do a better job of challenging them, praying for them, and constantly lifting them up. Learning lessons everyday & that is a beautiful thing!

So for today’s blog post, I wanted to do something a little more lighthearted and fun. I wouldn’t say that I am super picky when it comes to products I use, or things I swear by, however as with most of you I am sure, I have my favorites. I definitely have those items which I have to replace as soon as they run out. Some of these are year-round staples, whereas others are seasonal. I am always looking for new awesome things to try out, so make sure to let me know what your favorite products/accessories/etc are.
