A few weeks ago, Megin’s family, Matt and I joined a farm co-op. Basically, every week we pay for a box of fresh fruits and vegetables that are grown at a local farm. We all liked the idea of being forced to eat and cook vegetables we’ve never heard of with the added guilt of …
Good morning to all of you, just wanted to share the news that this sweet, handsome man asked me to be his wife!
We’ve been all silly smiles since! Once I get a chance, I want to make a proper introduction and indulge in some sappy storytelling. But just had to tell you all!
Hope everyone has a wonderful week! Can’t believe it’s almost May.
A few months ago, I saw this video and ever since I can’t stop declaring, “I love my whole life.” Maybe you’ve seen it before, but this video is a shot of pure joy and gratefulness.
At first, I would do my own impersonation of Jessica, lunging back and forth while quickly shouting out things I loved. I mostly did this for my mom. She thinks I’m real funny which is always a nice affirmation. But for today, I’ll just declare my daily affirmations right here.
Now, my whole life is great. I like my mom. I like my dad. I like my sisters. I like their families. I like my Matts. I like my job. I like coffee. I like 2nd cups of coffee. I like my friends. I like Spring. I like Spring clothes. I like the weather. I like my apartment. I like its’ windows. I like this town. I like the restaurants. I like the people. I like the memories. I like my whole life. *clap* My whole life is great. I can do anything good. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Ahh, that felt good. Whoever said it is harder to feel bitter, sad, angry, scared, insert whatever ugly emotion when you are being thankful, was right!
So say it with me now- I. Love. My. Whole. Life!
If you found this cheesy and annoying, I apologize. But I like you, too.
I’ve lived in my apartment for 9 months now. And it only took me about 7 months to realize that my living room layout was just not good. Here is how it was for at least the first 6 months…
Wow, it’s a bit of a mess. I’m a little embarrassed it took me so long to realize it. The worst part was the TV covered the one arched window that you can see the sunset from each day. So now it looks like this…
Ahh, much nicer. The window is now the focus and the TV kind of disappears on the right side. Curtains would go a long way, but let’s focus on the positives here. (And I’ll leave out the terribly boring part about how the curtains and rods are actually hiding under the daybed, probably never to be hung because I would rather get my deposit back. Who am I?)
I also finally got around to filling the large, blank wall above the daybed.
