Everyday Inspirations


~ one year of inspiration ~

Angie and I are excited to introduce the first guest blogger helping us celebrate our one year anniversary: Teri from A Foodie Stays Fit! Teri and I went to the same high school, and over the past year we reconnected on Facebook and through the blog world (I wrote a guest post for her back in September, right after we met up for a fun coffee date). Teri even helped co-host our last #mixermixer party on Twitter in December. She has become a great online friend (if only she lived closer!) and a fabulous person with whom we can share blogging experiences. Thanks for inspiring us today, Teri. {ash}


Hi all! It’s Teri from A Foodie Stays Fit and I’m so happy to help celebrate the blogiversary of Everyday Inspirations! Without further ado, these are some things that inspire me. 

1. A mug of freshly brewed tea.  The color of tea when it's brewed from loose leaves is so beautiful. [Yeah, I know - I need a mug that says “tea”.]
2. Early mornings. I love the feeling of anything-is-possible and clearheadedness that I feel just as the sky starts to come alive.
3. Music. I love how certain songs can evoke memories, inspire moods, improve workouts and move my soul.

4. My mom and Dad. OK, they aren't "things" but they are wonderful people. They both serve others without a second thought, raised SIX kids who all turned out (relatively) normal and successful, and always tell us kids that they love us and are proud of us.

5. A beautiful pair of heels. There just ain't nothing like 'em.
6. The type of run that makes me feel so ALIVE.

7. People who stay active and fit through all stages of life. I want to be like that

8. Travelling. I love seeing other cultures, new places, experiencing a bit of a different life.
9. Seeing progress in workouts. I love increasing my weight in Body Pump, running faster, running longer, and feeling stronger in cycle.

10. My dog. She never fails to put a smile on my face, whether she’s racing around the yard, cuddling on my lap, or just being blame goofy like boxers often are. And she’s so darn cute!

I'm inspired by Scripture. Timeless words that may have been written 2,500 years ago, but speak to me clearly today in this moment.

Awesome guest blogger! I'm inspired by the snowy, beautiful mountains. I feel so energized looking at them or snowboarding down them.

I'm inspired by conversations with my grandparents. They are absolutely amazing.
