It’s Lit || feat. Braided Bliss

Two Little Birds Wander West // Braided Bliss Two Little Birds Wander West // Braided BlissOkay. Yup. It’s happened. Not really sure how it happened, and still pondering on it, but it did. The holidays are upon us, and we’ve already gotten one down, and two to go. Where, oh, where does the time go?? We hope you enjoyed your turkey, stuffing, and pie because . . . SHE GONE.Two Little Birds Wander West // Braided Bliss Two Little Birds Wander West // Braided BlissHolidays mean many things to the both of us. Cozy weather, sweaters, not sweating during photoshoots (holla), the smell of pine, cinnamon, pumpkin, a plethora of tea & hot chocolate, Christmas music, OH, and Elf. Say it with us . . . “ SAANNNTTTAAAAAAAA “ . . . but one sticks out the most . . . spending EVEN MORE time with our families, and friends. We each would be nothing without our families, and nothing without our friends that we have chosen to become a part of our family, a.k.a. our tribe/jerl-gang. They are our backbone for forever and ever. The people that we can count on countless of times, the people that tell us the honest truth when we would probably much rather prefer a nice cushy lie, and the people that lift us up. Blood or chosen they’re who we love, and who we want to surround ourselves with during every holiday season.

We both are so beyond blessed to have people in our “tribe” that inspire us, and motivate us, but we are also blessed to have the ability to do the same for them. It’s easy to get wrapped up in negativity. Everyone always has something to say, and everyone always has an opinion. Putting people down has become somewhat of a cushion for people . . . a safety net, if you will . . . to make people feel better about themselves. We see it in our every day lives, but how freakin’ lucky are we that we have people who are they exact opposite, and that we have the ability to choose love instead.Two Little Birds Wander West // Braided Bliss two little birds wander westTwo Little Birds Wander West // Braided Bliss Spend the holidays with people who you truly want to be with. Spend them with people you love so much your heart may actually burst. Life’s too short to spend it any other way. And if you’re reading this, and don’t have that solid “tribe” in your life, or for some reason you are surrounded by negativity, instead of being sucked in, choose to be that light. Choose to be that positive jingle bell! ‘Tis the season J . . .

But lastly, choose and strive to be these things not only during the months of November, December, and the beginning of January, but throughout your life. The keyword within all of this is “choose”. YOU are in the driver seat of your own life. YOU have the power to say yes, or no . . . not Joe, or Cathy, or Steve or whoever is telling you otherwise. Bye Felicia! Life will always be a little bit better, and shooooot SO much easier when you choose to love and let go. It’s even a little bit brighter when there’s people in it that bring you joy, laughter, and light up your life because let us tell you . . . our lives . . it’s lit.
