You Owe Yourself the Love that You Freely Give to Other People. Howerton+Wooten Events.

We go out into the world seeking a return on what we give. The joy, the love, the generosity. It’s true. It should all come back to you because you deserve it. But until another fountain comes, drink from your own. Quench yourself. Nourish yourself. Replenish yourself. Love yourself with the same intensity that you […]

Monday Morning Thoughts. You Owe Yourself the Love That You So Freely Give to Other People.

Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti. Howerton+Wooten Events.

Be generous with kindness. Toss it around by the handfuls. Let it fill the air through in your silent prayers, your spoken words of praise, your heart’s commitment to be the blessing you want to see in the world. Somebody needs to be showered by your vibrant spirit today. Just look around. Love & Soul […]

Monday Morning Thoughts. Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti.


Your heart dictates more than who you love. It speaks volumes. It speaks passion. It speaks truth. It speaks life into your next steps and is your compass to guide you along the journey. Stop. Be still. Be open to hearing and learning.  Let your heart lead while your spirit follows. With that you can’t […]

Monday Morning Thoughts. Put Your Ears Down by Your Heart and Listen Hard.


Words are contagious. They flow through a space, through a spirit, with an energy and an ease that makes anyone who hears them stop and take notice. So when you speak, speak light. Speak levity. Speak love. Speak kindness. When those words spread, because they will, you want them to incite a movement that reflects […]

Monday Morning Thoughts. Speaking Kind Words Start a Wave of Love in Motion.


When it comes to this life, the only certainty is you will only come around once.  You have one life to live, so always make it meaningful. Give in to your desires for once. Seek and find the things that truly bring you joy. Live limitlessly. End every day without regrets. Finish what you start […]

Monday Morning Thoughts. Eat Dessert First.

Excited Bridesmaids. Howerton+Wooten Events.

Last week was pretty intense for me (and even a little wacky).  I found myself “bottlenecking” my progress in the name of “perfection.” Fortunately, my “comrade in life” Chris Wooten helped me to put this nonsense in my life into perspective. Check out one of my previous blog posts on the value of having a “Type F” in your life. […]

Love Yourself First. So You Know What You Deserve

No one can love you better than you. When you are clear on the love you need and how you need to receive it, you can spread the word. So, set the bar high and watch others follow suit. Love yourself well. Fully. Fabulously. Beautifully. Blissfully. It’s never, ever too much. Love & Soul Always, […]

Monday Morning Thoughts. Love Yourself First, So You Know What You Deserve.


It’s the time of year when we all feel more grateful for the things we treasure most—life, love, family and friends. Let’s not just limit our thankfulness to the next few days; instead, let’s live with grateful hearts and spirits every day. Make giving thanks for your blessings more than a season. Make it a […]
