"(Life is) not about wood floors. No, life is about love and truly experiencing the beauty we are meant to know."- Kelle Hampton, Bloom
Let me preface this post by saying that this will probably not be the last time I use a quote from Kelle Hampton's memoir for my quotable bit of the week. She is beyond inspiring - a mentor for bloggers and for moms who need to look at life from a "glass half full" perspective.
When I was on maternity leave with my second little one, I remember having lunch with a friend who insisted that I check out this blog she had been following. "You need to start with the birth story of Nella first, and make sure you have lots of Kleenex" she said. I was hesitant, but I took a look because she had spoken about it with so much enthusiasm. How could a blog post be so touching? I thought. I went home that night, read it, and cried my eyes out.
I've been following her blog ever since, and have been truly inspired by her beautiful photography, her funky fashion sense, and her enviable creativity. She's crafty, she's gorgeous, and she's always positive about the challenges she has faced.
