I read a great post at the end of June by Nicky from The Shimmer Within Her, a sweet blog I just discovered. She lists all sorts of little things that please her and reading them made me smile. The last few days have been a combination of awful and sweet (in that order). I alternate between wanting to grab my husband and my passport and just leaving for good, and being so very glad I’m here.
Life just handed me a bag of crap and I’m having one heck of a time turning it into fertilizer. So I thought a list of things that make me happy, like the one Nicky made, is probably a good idea—I’m even borrowing all those little hearts she sprinkled throughout hers. Let’s see if I can level off the depressing bits with some cheerful ones.
Here we go!
