The past couple weeks have been a little stressful in our household, so the spring-like weather that Charleston has been sprinkling down on us has been a mood-boosting blessing and a little sparkle of encouragement throughout our days recently. I've never been the best with cold weather (unless it's snowing, then I lose my mind like any California raised child that grew up seeing snow maybe a handful of times), but since Charleston doesn't get snow (that I know of), I am still learning how to endure the winter.
Spring and Fall have always been my favorite seasons to dress within. I can still wear cozy things, but I don't need to worry about bringing my winter coat along, or I can just wear layers with a more lightweight outfit. Versatility is my happy place; it's a little sparkle in my routine.
Another thing that has been making me smile and adding a literal sparkle into my days have been these new jewelry pieces from Sparkle La Vie that I recently received. Every girl needs a piece of jewelry that adds a bit of sparkle and shine to her outfit. This ring and earrings from Sparkle La Vie will call out to anyone with magpie tendencies, and they add such a feminine touch to any outfit. They catch the sunlight in such a beautiful way, yet they are not so large that they overpower the person wearing them. (I've always said, I want to wear my jewelry and not have it wear me, if that makes sense.) These pieces fit those requirements and I've been pulling them out to wear multiple times a week.
When life gets stressful, I find it's best to focus on the bright side of things while steadily tackling whatever is stressing me out. I can't always control or change the stressful things that enter my life (like Max's surgery - there was nothing we could have done to prevent it), but I can control where I focus my energy and how I respond to those situations. Prayer, trust, and finding things to see joy in surrounding the circumstances are the three things I work to put my energy into instead of stressing. Those little joyful sparkles can go such a long way.
