Beauty in Purple.

A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
Roald Dahl





I think she has only good thoughts. So striking! I also love the purple inspiration for this editorial. My goal is to have only good thoughts for today. How about you? XX

Second time I have seen purple on a blog today! I am for sure adding it to my office now...it inspires creativity, which I didn't know! Beautiful pictures..hope you're doing well! xoxo

I try every day - great quote! I like to set the tone for my day (and my husband) by filling our house with laughter and joy first thing in the morning, really think that helps. Of course it's easier for me because I'm a morning person.

Tina said...

Hi sweetie!

Hoping evertyhing is well and that the work on the house is going great!
Hugs!

Purple is one of the "it" colors this year and I have always loved it. I almost always have good thoughts but sometimes someone just pushes your buttons huh?

Splendid Willow said...

Well stated! (And purple too!). I try to live with good thoughts every day. But I find it harder to live in the moment. To not look back and alalyze and to not look forward and try to play things out. That is my exercise this year. To enjoy life and treasure the moment -- right now!

Happy weekend beautiful Stacey.
