Be the Light

Girl Meets Bow in Cabana Life at St Pete Beach

Today’s post is so near & dear to my heart… so buckle up because we’re going to get personal! 🙂 In the past few weeks I’ve been asking friends and family what makes my blog unique- what makes it stand out from a sea (an ocean really!) of other bloggers out there. And the word that kept being told to me was “happy.” That I am always so happy. That my blog is a happy place. That my posts make people happy.

Wow y’all! That blows me away that “happy” is the cornerstone of this blog (and thrills me because that’s what I dreamed it would be)! But it also puts a responsibility on my heart to not just be happy & share happy photos & finds, but to do more and be a light to anyone reading here.

When I prayed over the blog this year, and the direction I wanted my content to go, the phrase I kept repeating to the Lord was “please let this space share your love” – and to hear that word, happy, let’s me know that the Lord is at work! I’m humbled that he can use a little Florida girl’s blog for his glory! {See I told you we were going to get personal!}

So I guess where I am going with this, is to ask you how you’re “being the light” to others in your life? I had a dear friend of mine tell me once that she appreciated that I bring little joys to her life in the form of silly conversations about shoes and clothes. Yes, they are frivolous topics, but my friend has a very serious and demanding job so getting to chat about frivolous things for a few minutes helps me be the light to her 🙂 So I’m going to continue to strive to make this blog a happy place. A happy space. A place where we can be the light to each other and where we get inspired to be the light in our daily lives.

Sound good? I do hope you’ll join me!

    I would completely agree, a happy place is the exact term I’d use to describe your little space! And I love the redesign so much! You’re really making me want to make the switch to WordPress!

      I’m so glad you feel that way 🙂 I’m thrilled with making the switch & it really wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be to learn the new platform!

    Ok, first, your outfit is amazing! It’s so cute.
    Second – I love your blog and it IS such a happy place! It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes about how we should stop looking for the light and become it instead!

    I totally agree with this! I deal with a lot of serious issues in my job too, so I love coming home to shift my focus to fun things like clothes and shoes. Your blog is so bright (literally and figuratively!) that it helps me do just that, so thank you!
