More Writer’s Block (& My 3 Favorite Flowers)

This is the second week in a row that I’ve struggled with writer’s block on the same blog post. I’ve worked hours on it today and I am very frustrated, haha.

The post in question is answering one of the questions I got for the Q&A that I thought needed more than just a quick 1-2 sentence answer: “What advice do you have for a future young wife?”

It’s not that my answer is long & involved (at least not in it’s current state).. it’s that I’m putting too much pressure on myself to make it perfect. I’m afraid I will say the wrong thing and I will be judged for my answers, or that I’m forgetting something SUPER OBVIOUS that I should include in my advice.

I also have Some Opinions about the typical Conservative Christian advice for young brides that’s floating around out there. Figuring out how to articulate that has proved to be tricky.

I don’t know, I just can’t get it done right now; I feel like I just need to step away from it (again) for awhile. I’ll try to remember to work on it throughout the week this time instead of waiting until Thursday and panicking! Haha.

Since it’s past 10pm, I’m gonna share a quick & easy list (that I already had in my drafts) of my current favorite flowers. Not the most exciting or deep subject I’ve ever blogged about, but hey! I hope y’all enjoy these pictures nonetheless. See y’all tomorrow ❤

1. Sunflowers
I think sunflowers are the happiest flowers, and they’re my favorite to have around the house.


2. Lavender 
I love everything about lavender: the smell, the shape, the color; if I could go back in time and redo my wedding decor, I would use lavender and sunflowers as the main inspiration.


3. Ranunculus 
I only learned about ranunculus this Spring, but I think they’re so pretty and romantic! Just look at all those layers! (Although some of these pictured could be peonies, I can’t really tell a difference, whoops.. I like both, I guess)


What are your favorite flowers?

  1. I totally understand struggling with getting the right words out and trying to make sure you speak your mind in the best way possible! Just wanted to say that as a young woman who is getting married this summer, I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts on the subject. Whenever you can articulate them all to your liking, of course! 🙂
    Love your blog, by the way. Just wanted to say that you’re doing a great job and I hope you have a wonderful day!

  2. Oh, law. Talk about a loaded subject. I say be bold and go for it. Someone will disagree; someone will be unhappy; someone will say something. And that’s how you know you’ve done it right. 🙂 Anyway, I love peonies! And daffodils. And tulips. But I’m more of a flowering shrub kind of gal — I adore forsythia. That’s that big yellow bush that blooms around this time of year here that is supposed to be let to grow as it wills (usually in big flailing arms of brilliant yellow), but that some people prune and try to contain. It always hurts my heart when I see a forsythia that’s been cut into a box or an funnel or a ball or whatever, because that’s not what they’re meant to be (imo).


  3. Advice for a young wife to be would be tough because every circumstance is different and upbringings and backgrounds I think sometimes have a place to play. It is good that you are taking your time on it because it is a rough one to think on. I think no matter your answer, you are going to be considerate and do a great job at it. I am sure your heart will come through.

    My favorite flowers are pansies. I love how vibrant they are and how each one looks different from the rest noticeably. I just always loved them. I told my husband ages ago that when I am hopefuly very very old and if I die before him, that I want sunflowers only at my funeral because I want it to remind people that I long to find joy even in the sad times. I actually on a side note about sunflowers have this great facial sunscreen moisturizer that was made from sunflower and chia seed extracts. SO GOOD. I used to love Lillies of the Valley when I was a child. They grew all around my parents’ yard and smelled SO GOOD and were so cute! I only recently found out that they have poison in them if consumed (glad I never tried eating them).

    Loved reading your post!
