This blog compiles all things I find inspiring to my heart, my soul, my dreams. I also do the occasional personal blog, and recipe posts. I am a wife to an amazing Marine, a mom to three beautiful children, and a woman in all ways. =) I am currently living a tranquil life in Oahu with my little family. I will be 32 this year. We are never too "old" to dream...

You have to recognize real love when its there and know that in going after it there is always risk. To live with love, you have to chance losing it. Brad Pitt

Though I am young and cannot tell,
Either what Death or Love is, well,
I have heard they both bear darts,
And both do aim at human hearts. Ben Jonson

To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget. Arundhati Roy

I do my thing, and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations.
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I.
And if by chance we find each other, it’s beautiful.
If not, it can’t be helped Bruce Lee

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. Harriet Tubman

Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. Lou Holtz
