I’m spending a few minutes once a month introducing a blog I think you should spend your lazy Sunday morning getting to know (if you don’t love them already). *Photo from Happyolks*
If there’s one thing we can always use more of it is certainly hope. Make a cup of coffee, tuck your feet under you on the couch, and go dive into Happyolks to meet Kelsey & Shaun and get a big helping of hope this morning. I honestly feel that this is the one of two blogs I would read even if they didn’t have beautiful pictures accompanying their posts. Kelsey’s writing is genuine, uplifting, inspiring, and so hopeful. I regularly go back to this post whenever I feel completely overwhelmed by everything – everything that I love, everything that I want to do in the time that doesn’t seem to exist, everything that makes my heart soar and everything about life that intimidates me. She seems to have the hope that though we don’t have it all figured out, it’s still going to be okay. That post reminds me that yes, when we see life as a beautiful thing it can cover us in joy and it can also give us a swift kick. It’s messy, it leaves us lost sometimes, but that is part of the good. It’s wonderful when everything is neat and sweet, but those are short moments in between what makes life, well, life. These words lift me up.
P.S. And for camp cooking, the girl has some great recipes and lovely videos to accompany them.
