These past few days have really made me aware of how lucky I am. I don't know if it is the gorgeous weather we have been having or the fact that I'm off of school for a week, but its working.
Today I had such a wonderful day. I woke up and packed Alec's lunch for him and made him breakfast before he went to work. Then, slept a few more hours and woke up to all the pets on my bed cuddling me. I then rode around in my car with the sunroof down and went antique store shopping. This is one of my favorite things to do. I came home with a few great finds but will post more on that tomorrow. After that, I visited my mom at work and stopped at my Grandma's house. Then, went out to dinner with Alec before finishing off the day with crafting and baking homemade cookies.
I saw on Kara's blog that she decided she wanted to live a beautiful life, not a happy one. This really resonated with me. Of course everybody wants to live a happy life but, I feel like I live a beautiful one, as well. I hope all of you are living beautiful lives and if not, make a change and work towards it. I was thinking about what makes my day feel particularly special or great. I realized that its not the big day-trip plans or the expected events, it is the unexpected or seemingly simple moments that make my day (or life) beautiful. I compiled some photos that attempt to capture some of these moments:
I hope everyone had a beautiful day, too. God Bless!
