The way she talked about the things she loved made the whole room turn to see what shone.
— Atticus

I came across this quote a few weeks ago and it immediately struck a chord with me, a way-down-to-the-core kind of impact. I hand-lettered the words over and over and thought about the girl in the quote and the girl I want to be.

There are a lot of things I love: calligraphy and coffee, photography and writing and my dog. I love marriage and Instagram and the start of a new day. I could talk about books for hours on end or sit in a coffee shop to watch stories unfold.

I think a lot of my loves come from God, and a lot of them from myself.

But at the end of the day, I hope I radiate His love, to the depths of my being.

I hope my loves reflect His

like a daughter imitating her Father,

like a student imitating the great Instructor,

like a musician playing the Composer’s song.
