Pretty Words

As I’ve shared before, I am a lover of words. Whether it be reading or writing, I have always found immense beauty in the crafting of words. But often, when I’m having trouble describing a feeling or emotion, I turn to those much wiser than I.

So, today I thought I would share my top five quotes to live by. I have carried many of these words with me through seasons of life full of joy, change, and sometimes disappointment. Some of them physically hang on canvases in my home, others are engraved on pieces of jewelry I cherish, while most are simply written on my heart.
