I love pretty things as much {or more} than the next girl.  Which is exactly why I need to remind myself of this.  Happy Sunday, I hope you collect something today that no one can

  1. Love that quote. Such a great reminder of what life is all about. I also love that your post is short and sweet. I woke up this Sunday morning early so I could write mine. :) Short and sweet might be the way to go today.

  2. So very true, but it’s funny how a ‘THING’ can warm one’s heart as a reminder of a special moment, place or time in one’s life, home and memory.

  3. Great quote…today I went to church and collected moments of faith and fellowship that will stay with me through the week.

  4. Oh amen!

  5. Love this! I’m having a great time with the 31 day challenge. Thanks so much for hosting :)

  6. So beautiful! I love this. And, since I don’t want a hidden tattoo, I’ll have to think of something else to collect today… ;)
    Thanks for your inspiring words to read every day! I added you to my blogroll – everyone should follow your blog!

  7. This post, beautiful and simple, speaks volumes. I love it, and just what I needed to hear. xo

  8. Yes, a great quote – copied it into my journal, to write it deep in my thoughts.
    Are you familiar with Keri Smith? The writing looks like her type of font. http://www.kerismith.com. Love her book, How To Be an Explorer of the World. A guess, but might be her quote.

  9. My comments never seem to actually post so I am trying again! Not sure what I am doing wrong! :(

    I just love this thought today. A “hidden” collection… I will have to think on this one (since I don’t want tattoos!) ;)
    Your words always inspire! I added you to my blogroll – everyone should read The Nester!
    Thanks,
    Claire

  10. Thanks for sharing this. I love to in a big kind of way. We did collect some unseeable things this morning with a family trip to the playground. Blue skies and birds singing. It was as close to perfect as it gets. <3

  11. Love this! Spent yesterday visiting my son in college. He has be gone just 2 weeks…but that is the longest span we have ever gone in 18yrs. Luckily he is only about an hour away so we can visit easily when we want. I collected several moments yesterday that I will cherish more than any things I could ever buy!

  12. Such wisdom in those few simple words! Perfect sentiment for today as it is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. ~Kerri, A Pop of Pretty

  13. I love that! One of my favorite moments of the day is when I relax on the floor and just watch my kids play all around me.

    (And I love the collection of erasers on your pinterest board too.)

  14. so very, very true. I need to be reminded of that more. I’m addicted to pretty things.

    Thanks for sharing!

  15. Went to a craft fair with my mom-in-law today. Did a lot of looking (I rarely buy much at those types of things) but cherished the time with just her (no other siblings, and no babies). I did spend $3 on Christmas ornaments, but I would have been just as happy with today if I hadn’t bought anything. Honestly, having your words in my head from the past week really made me look critically at everything, even things I liked. “Would that make me happier to come to my house?” I thought. “Would I be happy to pass it on to my children in 50 years?” Through that lens, nothing really seemed important enough to buy. Thanks for this series – I’m looking forward to the rest of it!

  16. Absolutely collecting the moments and soaking them up.

  17. But I love collections!
    My vintage children’s dishes are bringing me such nice moments to collect….!
    Your blog is lovely.
