It's a rainy day in the city.

I might have been better off staying in bed today. 

But I refuse to let it get me down, because hey - life's too short. 

And you know what? I'm choosing to be happy. 
Or at least faking it until I recognize every little wonderful thing that peppered this day with loveliness.

Like rain. And the existence of feta cheese. And new friends. And a scheduled day off in October. And photos of family from this weekend. And warm socks, texts from mom, sharing an umbrella with a coworker, polite smiles, plans for the weekend. And hugs. Lots and lots of hugs from the husband who texts to remind me to carry an umbrella home from work.

See? I'm feeling better already.

And here's a little photo sequence to remind you how cool, fun and downright charming we are.
In case you forgot. 
Because I did as I traipsed through the subway system sans umbrella, jacket and appropriate footwear.


  1. You're doing a great job reminding yourself of the "good stuff" on a bad day! :)

  2. aww cute pictures! And I love your little gratitude list. Sometimes it is easiest to see the small things which you need to be grateful for when you've had a hard day.

  3. Cute photos! Is that a dress with a shirt over the top of it? Awesome. :D

  6. If you want to pass your rain this way, I'll totally take it off your hands dudette. And yay for scheduled days off! I have a post it in my desk at work counting down to all the good things like days off and christmas. It cheers me up when I'm bummed.


I love hearing from you!
