But my skin feels happy!

The Shine Project {Pass It Forward}

Ashley from The Shine Project is so brave and inspiring to me.  When she asked for some help spreading the word about her newest project, I was so excited and jumped at the chance to help!  I didn't know exactly what it was yet, but I knew it would be good.  When I found out what she had been working on, I was so happy to be able to help spread the word about something this amazing.

Pass it Forward


This is such a great idea! I am confident that it will spread some "Shine" around our own communities and beyond.  I am a firm believer that a simple act of kindness can impact someone's day and then trickle down from one person to another.  Ashley has come up with a great way to document this and get people excited about helping others by being able to see the love and kindness spread. 

In Ashley's Words...

"Pass It Forward was designed to get people to do little things, everyday, that makes an impact on the community around them. Pass it Forward is designed around a card. Each card is given a unique ID number. Lets say we're at McDonalds, and I decide to pay for the person behind me in the drive through. I'd give the cashier the card, and tell them to pass it along to the next car when the give them the food that has been paid for. I then go home and log into the website that was on the card, and find my unique ID number. I log into it, and add my information... My first name, city, and a description of what I did...

Let's say the person behind me was you, you would pass it forward to someone else, and then would go home and do the same thing. From the very beginning, you will be able to track where your card goes, and how many people you affect just by doing one simple act of kindness.  This project had the potential of working small miracles in the lives of those we pass, and we will then be able to see how far one simple act can go. 

I want to spread the shine community into something that is in every city, so that we can get more projects done and change more lives... I have strongly felt like this is a big way that will get accomplished. "

Head on over to Ashley's blog to get the full scoop and find out how you can be a part of this great project. 

Pass It Forward

I should be getting my first card any day and I am excited to be able to share my first Pass It Forward experience:)

Thank You Ashley!! xoxo

Music Monday!

I love music

All kinds of music.

Music is a beautiful art form...a creative self expression. I love the poetry in a lyric, the story to be told...I love that a few notes, or simple words pieced together in an inspired way can stir up so much energy and emotion.  It is amazing to me that I can hear a song from years ago and have it evoke an exact feeling I had at that time in my life. 

I have been enjoying Music Mondays over at Sugar Blossom Boutique.  Danielle shares some great music each Monday and has a link up! I have yet to link up, but since this song has taken over my life(haha), I decided to join the fun:) 
I have found so many great artists and songs from social media, so I love this idea Danielle has:)

I love this song(it was written for the Breaking Dawn soundtrack), and I recently found this video of the talented Ryan O'Neal beautifully playing and singing his work of art. I have been enjoying it over and over again...LOVE.  I also love that my Mister loves it too and sings it to me and randomly texts me parts of the lyrics ...he knows the way to my heart:)

Beautiful, right?
