Live Simply

//print available here//
 
So I recently (yesterday) became obsessed with Thomas Rhetts new song "Die a Happy Man" . I heard it on the radio in the morning, bought it off iTunes instantly and have listened to it oh about 10 times since then. I've concluded that there are several reasons why I love this song:
 
1. Mr. Rhett has a very dreamy voice
 
2. He's super cute and somehow manages to embody both the rugged guy and pretty boy look at the same time.
 
 
3. The message in the song is so perfect! I love country music but between all the songs about trucks, boats, dirt and white tank tops this song about being happy with simplicity is so refreshing.
 
The chorus in this song ends with "Oh if all I got is your hand in my hand, Baby I could die a happy man." Obviously this is beyond sweet, and if Brandon ever said or sang this to me I would just melt but I also think it's an important thing for all of us ladies to remember. I feel like in the age of Pinterest, Instagram and even in blogging we can get too caught up in wanting/needing it all. Or thinking we can only truly love someone who can provide us with it all. But the goal should be to be perfectly happy by simply walking hand in hand with your significant other.
 
I've had the words "Live Simply" as my lock screen for a few weeks now and it's become a bit of a mantra to me. It's a nice reminder when you're trying to make decisions or get caught in the rabbit hole of social media. It's also really helped me in my personal style. And I feel like I'm overall more content when I remember to live simply.
 
So long story short... If you're looking for a new mantra I highly suggest this one and go listen to Thomas Rhett!
 
 
Happy Thursday! Best part of today? The TBT playlist on my commute home!!
Linking up with Joey!!

  3. I love this! We really do get caught up so much in wanting/needing everything to be a certain way, that sometimes I forget to enjoy all the little moments. I've been trying to be better about it and I am loving this motto!
