Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! The weather is finally warm here (consistently) and we’re loving it! 🙂
Kevin and I spent the weekend relaxing with family and grilling out. Needless to say, we had a great weekend celebrating both of our wonderful dads! And… we even let Sophie (our puppy) go swimming in the lake for the first time ever! She instantly jumped in after one of the other dogs then looked back at us, wide-eyed, and swam back to shore. After being a little apprehensive, she went swimming again. I can’t wait to see how she acts next time we bring her to the lake! =) Can I already be wishing next weekend was here?!
For this week’s motivation Monday I chose a quote on happiness:
“Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything it is.”
To me, it’s a great little reminder to always count your blessings! Happiness can look different for everyone and you should really celebrate all the great things your life contains! =)
Hope you have an awesome Monday!

THANK YOU for this Motivation Monday quote! This is exactly what we all need to hear sometimes. Too often we get caught up in expectations or the move-reel in our heads and take the little things for granted. Thanks for the reminder!
Love this!! I often get caught up in what I don’t get done in 24 hours. I need to “hang loose”:) Hawaii has be feeling that now though;)

I truly look forward to your Monday motivation because it is seriously so encouraging! It’s always sad when weekends come to an end, but you keep the positivity at bay and hit us with it early Monday morning which is the perfect time for it.
I love that quote, it is simply amazing. It is something I think everyone including myself needs to do.

This is so true… military life isn’t easy and I feel like this is a good reminder to just be happy with what it is. Thanks girl 🙂
Love your Motivation Monday! My poor puppy (not such a puppy anymore) is not a fan of the water, but she loves the beach. The first time we brought her back from the beach, she tried to dig in the carpet (like sand) for a week. It was probably the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. I’m glad your Sophie enjoyed her swim!
I love that quote and I feel like it is something I always need to remind myself. Everyone has a picture of what their life is supposed to look like and very rarely does everything play out as planned. But that doesn’t make life any less beautiful. In fact, life might be a little boring if it happened just as we expected.

I’m so glad the weather has been cooperating! I’ve been getting moody with all the rain we’ve had in texas 🙁 sunshine definitely puts me in a better mood 🙂 i hope you have a great week
I love this quote! That is definitely great advice and something I need to be better about reminding myself.
That’s so adorable. My dog loooves to swim, it’s so cute. She was a rescue so I wonder where she got the courage or desire to jump in! She doesn’t hate baths, but doesn’t love them. But loves to swim, idk how that works out haha!
Anyway, I love the quote you chose. It’s a great reminder that instead of being wishful and thinking about what you want your life to be or look like, rejoice in the time that you have in the present and do things with love and happiness!
