love it.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

kindred spirits.

Todays word is Aspire.

1. to long, aim or seek ambitiously; to yearn (for); be eagerly desirous, especially for something great or of high value.

2. to rise up; soar; mount; tower; to rise to a great height

I aspire to be a great many people... here are a number of women comprised of both fictional and non-fictional that i admire greatly and even sometimes imagine myself to be; josephine march. anne shirley. jane austen. elizabeth bennett. audrey hepburn. maria von trapp. mary poppins. among many others... these heroines are made up of bold, confident, determined women who believe in themselves enough, and who stop at nothing, to realize their dreams. to write novels. go to college. to not care what the world may think of them. they are dreamers and poets, passionate and unstoppable. radiant and charming. they live by the impulse of the moment, throwing caution to the wind, yet have their wits about them. accomplishing noble and seemingly unfeasible feats. they embody womanhood. their pursuit of happiness is inspiring. forever chasing after their dreams. they embrace life with all of their heart and soul. they are kindred spirits. bright. stunning. exquisite beauties. lovely and endearing. - - - women i long to mimic, to take a lesson or two from. to follow after. to be stirred by their infectious love for life!

would you rather be divinely beautiful, dazzlingly clever, or angelically good? - - - anne shirley


  1. Ohhh Karli ... this is why WE are kindred spirits - because that is precisely a list of all my favorite women that I long to be like and hope to have the same kind of infectious love for life that you speak of. :] And I DO see so many of those qualities in you ... so I don't think your aspirations are too far off!

  2. Lydia, dearest! thank you so so much, your encouraging words mean so much to me. as do i see many of the same qualities in you! we ARE forever kindred spirits... i miss you a ton lady.
