I call this my happy room. The room I go to when the boys are fast asleep. And I need to kick up my feet and rest. Or write. Or cozy up by the fire.

When we first moved into this house, I was too nervous to hang anything on the walls. This was our first “real” home together and I wanted to be absolutely certain about the nails I hammered and the items I selected to represent our family. But after weeks (which eventually turned into months) of indecision, Ben finally sat me down to have a talk.

Ben: They’re just holes.

That was it. That was all he said. And it was all I needed to hear.
I was free to make mistakes. Free to change my mind.
Free to hang up whatever I felt best reflected our family at this stage of life.

And you know what?
Once I stopped thinking, and just started hanging–I found that the results represented us more accurately than if I would have approached the project with a detailed set of plans.  Because we’re not a detailed set of plans kind of family. We’re a bit whimsical. We’re a bit neutral with pops of color. We’re happy and optimistic. And I think this room captures that now.

quilt

This is one of the fab, vintage quilts I snagged while at Whatever Craft Weekend.

This little collage wall is extra special to me.  For me, words are art. They have power. And the words found on this wall are the words I hope will be etched in the hearts of my boys forever. These are the words I whisper into their ears as they drift off to sleep each night. These are the words I repeat in our nighttime prayers. These are the words I will remind them of when faced with important life lessons and decisions. These are the words that matter in our home–and I want there to be no doubts about that.

A few weeks back, Ben and I lay in bed telling stories about our childhood.
He began telling me a story about some family home evening gone awry.
And then another story about an impromptu family vacation to Mt. Rushmore.
And then a story about a road trip he and his dad took to visit colleges.

Several stories, some good laughs, a few sentimental head nods later…
and suddenly I found myself overwhelmed with appreciation.
Appreciation for the sacrifices made and the love freely given by two parents who love Ben oh-so-much.

Me: What about your family motto growing up?
Ben: What about it?

When Ben was growing up, his four siblings and parents sat down around the table one evening and came up with a motto–something to hold them all together, something to serve as a reminder of what really matters in the face of life’s obstacles and oppositions.

Me: I think that’s a really special thing your family did. And I think we should do it too. For the boys, and for us.

So we stayed awake a little while longer. And we thought long and hard.
I pulled out my trusty notepad and a pencil.
Then we came up with a list of mottos that touched our hearts.
Some of them were deep.
Some made us laugh.
Some were scripture.
But when we found the ONE, well…we just knew.

Be Awesome Today.

In our home, “awesome” doesn’t mean “being cool”.

It means making good choices.
Choosing love.
And kindess.
And optimism.
And compassion.
And charity.

Being awesome doesn’t mean being perfect.
It simply means,
be the best version of yourself.
Today.
And everyday.

I got in touch with my pal, Kristi of Barn Owl Primitives the next day and I told her my idea.
She got to work on yet another special treasure for my home.
When it arrived, I knew exactly where it was going to hang.
There was no anxiety about nailing these holes in the wall.

Now when you visit my home,
you’ll find “Be Awesome Today” hung right above our front door…

And in the morning,
when things are pure chaos,
and lunches are being thrown together,
and we’re frantically looking for a matching sock,
and the Disney Chanel is blaring in the background..
On these mornings and every morning,
as Ben leaves to take our son to school,
I quickly wrap my arms around Wesley’s tiny toddler body,
pull him in close, ruffle his hair…and whisper in his ear:
Be Awesome Today buddy, be awesome.
And then I plant a big kiss on his lips
and trust the world to take care of my baby for the day.

    I had a hard time deciding on a motto…so I have 2.

    The first: “though she be but little, she is fierce” from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It’s just me and my bulldog [for now], but I can do great things on my own.

    The second: “you mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling” from Inception. Good motivation if you ask me.

    No family motto for us yet. Although, we have been discussing things like this as our son gets a little older. Thank you for the inspiration!

    My favorite sign? Too hard to choose! My almost-two-year-old screams “yay”, claps and hugs me after singing “You are my sunshine” – so that has a special place in my heart. However, “you is kind, you is smart, you is important” – seriously, who didn’t cry at the end of the movie when she told her that for the very last time?! Since then, I’ve LOVED that quote.

    We don’t have a family motto yet but I think it would have to be a combination of “We can do hard things” and “Love the now”. Our daughter was born with a congenital heart defect 2 years ago and our lives have been upside down ever since with heart surgery, doctor visits, hospital stays, etc. We’ve learned we most definitely can do hard things. Really really hard things. “Love the now” stems from the fact that not every day is roses and sunshine and sometimes life is just plain hard but we can still appreciate every day and love the little moments of goodness a midst the crazy. 🙂

    Wow, having a family motto is such a lovely idea. I would definitely love to have one for us, I may have to sit down with my husband and have a good chat about it.
    I guess we kind of have a bit of one, in that every night as the children are tucked into bed, I whisper “dream big little one” into their ear. I just recently made a sign saying that to go on the nursery wall and I love the permanent reminder.

She’ll say it to me and I’ll say it to her as she leaves for school. With my son… he and I grab pinkies EVERY night and pinkie swear to each other. ~ Love!! ~~Picking a fav sign is hard, I love them all. I think my super fav is “be awesome today”.

    Our family mottos: “Have no fear,” which we have to help ourselves tackle the difficult obstacles life throws, and we want to instill this in our kids so they grow up being confident and knowing fear only holds them back from accomplishing great things.
    “Fall seven times, stand up eight” is our other family motto, which encourages us endure to the end and to not let our weaknesses get us down.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – someday we will have the “we can do hard things” sign. My 11 year old son is a double amputee and has been walking with prostheses since he was five. He is a fantastic example of overcoming hard things, and proved it when he ran a card drive last fall and delivered over 1000 handmade get well cards to patients at Shriners Hospital (and Kristi helped spread the word!). He is sweet, resilient, and fiercly determined – my kind of guy. 🙂 His own personal motto is “it only takes a little to be BIG”. <3

    Thank you for the motto exercise! I caught my husband and some of our children at breakfast. We think our motto is “We Do Second Chances.” I have teenagers and adult children and I am going to challenge all of them to come up with two mottos for our Sunday dinner. It should be fun to see the ideas from each of them and very telling to my husband and I on how each one looks at our family.

    We don’t exactly have a family motto but I always tell my 5 year old to “just keep trying.” And whenever she thinks she can’t do something she always says we just keep trying, and eventually she gets it! I want her to learn how to never give up. But I’d have to say that my own motto that I’ve learned over the past few years is to never take things for granted! Being married to a Marine is overwhelming sometimes, and since we rarely see my husband I’ve learned not to take things for granted and enjoy the little moments! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I really loved this post! I loved looking at your living room. I have the EXACT same amount/kind of furniture and set up! How fun! I also used the exact colors except my red and blue are a little more deep. I used a very bright yellow like you did though. I also contemplated buying some of the exact same things you did, like the photo frame with stripes. I also bought that exact same basket and have towels in it leading out to the pool!!! 🙂 I’m still in contemplation mode…and afraid of the holes! I want a collage similar to yours and not sure what to put together. Considering so many things, some of which you used! I have a vintage photo with a dark frame like yours, and wasn’t sure about the frame being too dark. I also am looking for something ROUND so it’s not so symmetrical. I am going to keep this blog up to help me as I look at it, ponder, pray, look at it some more!

    Oh, and I really like your choice for a sign…Be awesome! I tell the kids that already…how wild. Perhaps we should meet?!

    I do have a sign up already that you see as soon as you walk in the door that says, “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!”

    Our family motto is “you stink.”

    I know this sounds silly, but the background story to this is:

    Before our darling little miss Sophie and before marriage, my husband (Steve) and I were driving around enjoying the beautiful scenery Washington state has to offer. Steve was driving and we were holding hands.

    I looked over at him and said, “guess what?”

    He smiles and says, “I love you too.”

    Me: “No, you stink :)”

    And from then on our nicknames were Stink (me) and the Big Stink (Steve); our daughter was born and she is the Wee Stink.

    So stink does not mean something bad; it means love.

    We’d been married less than a month. One day I looked at an old ratty hand-me-down chair we had and told my husband that I wish I could recover it. He told me to go get some fabric and recover it. I said I couldn’t recover a chair! He said to me, “How do you know you can’t? Have you tried?” So I went and got a book and fabric and between the two of us we recovered that chair. So that’s our family motto, “How do you know you can’t? Have you tried?”

    It’s just me right now. But my motto would be Carpe Diem. Cliche I know. But it truly fits how I feel about life right now. I’ve spent so much time watching life happen around me. And I decided a while ago that its time for me to stop watching and start living. Seizing the day.

    I love the idea of picking a family motto. We have a family scripture on my side of the family, but I never thought to add a motto to our little family. That’s something that I would really have to think about. I do love your motto though. It’s funny and a great reminder!

    Great post. Great idea for a family motto, thats so cute. You and your husband remind me of me and mine, always dreaming of ways to keep your family strong, I love it. I think our motto would be “All you need is love” simple but true and something I hope my family remembers is the most important thing in the world.

Because of this stress we forget how faithful and true God is, and the fact that we are “OK” deserves the utmost praise. We are doing what we can as we can do it, and I know God has big, perfect plans for us. 🙂

    First, I am dying over that vintage copy of Beezus and Ramona. I LOVE that book. And the movie.

    My motto right now is “I am Brave”. Honestly, dating is hard and getting your heartbroken is hard and boys are scared and I’ve learned that my job is to convince them that I won’t say no if they want to take me on a date. And sometimes that takes a lot of bravery. So, hopefully that counts as a family motto. 😉

    Our family motto growing up was always: Remember who you are. My mom still says it to us when she gives us our goodbye hugs. It has always stuck with me and my guess is that I will also tell my boys that.

    Right now, our motto is Let go and Let God. We have had a really rough year (recurrent pneumonia for my 2 yo including about 4 weeks worth of stays in the PICU which resulted an in asthma diagnosis, delivered boy #2 at 35weeks due to a me having partial neurological aura which resulted in the discovery of a brain tumor and a 7 day stay in the NICU for our sweet boy). No worries, we are all doing very well now. But letting go and letting God has been the only way we have gotten through it all!

    our family motto should be “be awesome today” – it pretty much sums it up.
    we say “whose got it better than us? NOBODY!” a lot too. :))

    we have been trying to come up with a family motto as well! right now we like either ‘come what may and love it’ or ‘work hard and be grateful’… but there are some amazing ideas in these comments, now my list is bigger!

    Our twins are only 14 months old but I hope that I can teach them to give just as much as they take in life.
    Maya Angelou said it best “I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.”
    I think that should be our motto.

    Just found your blog via Intagram. Love it! Growing up, our family motto was “Let go and let God” – it has been wonderful to fall back on so many times. I currently have a DIY sign coming down our stairs that says “Wake up and be awesome,” which is probably my husband and my family motto – so this is very fitting!

    I love the “you are my sunshine” board! My daughter just turned 2, but a few weeks ago had a horrible accident happen and cut through her tendons and nerves in her right hand. When she had surgery to try and repair everything, she went into the OR wanting to sing “You are my Sunshine” with me and all the doctors and nurses! She did amazing! I couldn’t believe everyone joined in with her! When she woke up, it’s the first thing she wanted to do, sing more! I would love to put one of those in her new “big girl” room.
