I have always wanted to display a family motto in my home. I imagine my kids arguing in the living room & me grabbing both of their hands & standing them in front of our family motto and say “SEE, we FORGIVE!”. I want something tangible, something visible, a constant reminder for our family to know who we are striving to be. We are currently building our home, and doing some of the finishing touches…..it occurred to me, that our powder room was the perfect place to read our family motto often. It also seemed to be a great place for guests to have a chance to read what our family stands for.
I sat down with Adam & wrote what we wanted our family to be. We have always said that we don’t want our kids to thrive in the world, we want them to CHANGE the world. We hoped that by writing our family motto & displaying it, that this would aide us in this.
As I was looking at my newly vinyled wall, I thought about all of the newlyweds whose weddings I photograph. What their motto’s may be and thus this blog post was born. Vinyl lettering is such a great way to personalize your home. I have seen some fantastic lettering such as Jensen Est. 2005, above wedding photos…to give it that extra personal touch on display. If you are wanting a family motto, a cute saying above your bed (“always kiss me goodnight”) or even something neat to display on the wall above your large canvases…I highly suggest you check out Wall Decal Depot on etsy. She was AMAZING to work with, fast with service & delivery and I LOVE my vinyl lettering.
