Over the last couple of years, I’ve referenced the creative community that I so dearly cherish and adore. And for me, it all started with Thrive. Upon attending the first conference in 2015, I met so many incredibly talented bloggers and creatives from all different paths — some super experienced and others novices like me. I left the weekend feeling confident, encouraged and motivated to put everything I learned at the conference into action. Fast forward and we’re now just a few weeks away from the third annual Thrive conference, Feb. 24-26. Cue the music! The speakers and schedule look absolutely incredible this year and the conference will take place at the beautiful Westin at The Woodlands. And get this, the hotel has gifted a one-night stay and dinner for two at Current to give to one lucky winner!
I know, I didn’t really give you guys a heads up on this one… Surprise! Welcome to L. Rose, my new little home on the web dedicated to all things beautiful, messy, fun and real. Not much has changed (really) besides the URL, name and branding of the site along with a few odds and ends here and there. You’ll still find all of the things that bring me joy including my love for home decor, beauty, style, food and family. I guess you could say it was time for me to just put on my big girl pants and move forward. But first, let me explain.
I’m not really one to do a book review. If we’re being totally honest, I didn’t read a single book in all of 2016. But I’ve made the commitment to read more books in the coming year and that starts with 52 Lists for Happiness. I came across this book recently and was immediately drawn in upon reading the foreword in which author Moorea Seal speaks so beautifully about pushing happiness to the top of the list.
