inspired - words

It shouldn't really come as a surprise
that someone who spends a large amount of their free time writing a blog
would quite like words.
When you enjoy writing words are beautiful things.

Words can be powerful.
They can bring you to tears
and make you laugh
or do both at the same time.
And I for one, find words really inspirational.

So this week I'm sharing quotes and phrases
that I like
or love
or live by
or would just like to have in my home.

I thought a lot about words
when I was planning our wedding.
But I think this is gorgeous.
I'd love it in our bedroom somewhere.

So true.
And this must mean that I am on the cusp of great things a lot of the time.

I am working really hard to have this attitude;
to accept my imperfection
and be proud of my strengths.
Not a bad mantra to live by I think.

I think I'd like this one on my wall
to remind myself that my life rocks.

This final one is by far my favourite.
In case you can't read it from the picture it says:
"Welcome to this humble home
full of every days
full of mundane chores
and the buzz of regular life
which is really a secret code
for here lives the most magical of creatures and superheroes
living the greatest love story of all time."

Anyone want to inspire me with anymore lovely quotes.
Just plain beautiful?
I'd love to hear them
so stick them in the comments box.

And I can't wait to see all the inspired things that you link up this week,
I loved seeing them all last week.
