Positive Vibes

1    //    2    //    3    //    4    //    5    //    6    //    7    //    8    //   9 

We get on a plane later today to head back home after spending the last six days in beautiful northern California, where we celebrated the marriage of two of our favorite people with dozens of our best friends. And I’m just feeling the love you guys. It’s been a long (maybe even years) time since I’ve posted some good ol’ positive and/or empowering sayings, but it just felt like the right time again. So here you go. May they bring happiness and hope and all that good stuff to your Monday. (If you need extra good vibes, check out this Pinterest board for more.)
