SATURDAY SAYINGS: SMILE, CHANGE AND HAPPINESS


Happy Saturday, Blogland!

I'm en route to my beloved New York City as I post this and I could not be more excited to get back to the city I love and the people I hold closest to my heart! Although my first stop will be to the hospital, which seems to be a place I've spent more time at by the sides of those whom I care about in recent years than I would like, there is no place else I'd be for this person who means the world to me!

Through all life's ups and downs, it is important to smile and remain as happy as possible because it really can and does make a difference. Therefore, in recent months, I have tried my best to continue to smile and remain positive and upbeat because it is simply a part of who I am and something I believe in so, so much! Plus, in times like this, I think it is needed most! :)

Aside from that, I'm looking forward to catching Broadway shows, eating at some of my favorite restaurants and finally going to use my birthday gift card to H&M at their 5th Avenue store, which is my favorite!

That said, I wanted to bring you a few quotes and inspiration for your Saturday and this week they are all about the importance of a smile, change and happiness.

I hope these brought a smile to your face or sparked a little something wonderful within you and that you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Oh and I just have to share the following, that was recently pinned on Pinterest and pertains to the quote theme this weekend, because it is my life quote...no joke...my younger sister told me that was my quote after seeing "Elf," and to this day it makes me smile and I totally relate! :)

Anywho, be sure to check back on Monday for a super fun, sparkle filled, holiday gift set giveaway from Pure Romance, which is perfect for all you ladies! I said I had a lot of fun things for you to get you through the holiday season and I love it!
