Happy Things



 Clearly, the number one reason why I look so happy in these pictures is because they were taken on our anniversary trip. The second reason is because I was wearing a happy sweater. In general, I hate sweaters. I don't enjoy wearing them at all and avoid it until I start to freeze in t-shirts. But there is room in my heart for two specific types of sweaters: sparkly sweaters and polka dot sweaters. I can wear those and be happy about it. This sweater meets my second qualification and so I am happy.

Also, did you happen to notice my gold medal? I wear it every time I want to feel Olympian. It always works.

Maybe it's a bad thing that simply being dressed in pretty clothes can make me feel like running and skipping and singing for joy--but I prefer to think of it as a good thing. Taking joy in the little blessings of life, you know?

  4. I have totally had that experience! Sometimes little things carry the right energy we need to help us feel whatever it is that we need. Maybe that's why children's stories are so full of magic objects:)
