Rosalita Linen Dress + Choosing Joy.

I wake up everyday, and ever since I was younger, I was taught to start the day off thanking God for everything in my life. From my friends, to family, to the season I am in, to the simple things like having a roof over my head, to food on the table, to being able to start a new day with new beginnings and for my favorite praying lamb stuffed animal(I was very young then). I love that this bag from Joy Bound Apparel says one of my favorite quotes, "Choose Joy." It's true. It's not something that always comes naturally. Sometimes, it can be very hard because "real life" happens. But, choosing Joy is a choice and a wise one because I believe that choosing Joy is saying that no matter my circumstances, God is faithful and I will be grateful for what I have, who I have and where I am at! So yes, I love this bag. It's actually the perfect size for an overnight bag, and the canvas would be perfect to take camping, which will hopefully happen soon! 

Another thing to be grateful for is this beautiful floral linen dress by Shop Bones! I love the open back, how light and flowy it is, and how easily you can pair layers and cardigans with it, which will transition it into fall perfectly! You can never have too many layers when fall hits!

Have a lovely weekend, friends!
