Thankfulness: My Weekly Gratitude List

Saturday, June 30, 2012

 Hello, Lovely Friend! The heat of the day has finally quelled, the sun has quietly set in a blaze of pinks & oranges, and now I'm happily writing this post while listening to my favorite tunes on Pandora. Although the world is not completely perfect, there are still a multitude of reasons to be thankful for all of the small miracles, beautiful messes, and splendid imperfections.

I have been struggling with stress for the past few weeks. I feel as though a strange mood has positioned itself over my life like a clingy rain cloud. It has been a challenge to shake off, but I'm starting to feel more like myself. I have started to make decissions based on my own happiness rather than to please others. I think it is something I should be doing on a daily basis.

Here are some of the things that are currently making me happy via Instagram. My user name is happytobequirky if you want to be insta-friends! 
Homemade hot fudge sundaes!

I'm constantly re-organizing my makeup because I love to be able to see all of my favorite products while getting ready in the morning.

What is currently making your heart smile??

Lots of love & positive vibes,
