Looking on the Bright Side

A beautiful cup of coffee from Deeper Roots, that I enjoy every Tuesday morning especially on these unbearably cold days.  And enjoyed as a Sunday morning date when I couldn't stand being cooped up anymore.

Some days are just not as good as other ones, and for me today was one of those days. It wasn't that anything was absolutely terrible, in fact it was just a blah day that never seemed to get much better than blah including my Tuesday night run. So this evening I was trying to think of all the good things that have happened lately that have made me happy and thought I would share them. I know it isn't designing or entertaining, but sometimes it is good to just take a moment and be happy instead of continuing the vicious cycle of crazy. So here are a few moments that make me smile. 

This past weekend wasn't just about the guest room, but we started on the master too. I can't help but smile every time I walk into the master to see my beautiful trim on the walls. My dad and hubby spent some serious hours on this project and I couldn't be happier with the results!

Some of the best running partners a girl could ask for. My running group always keep things in perspective and brightens my day no matter how bad it is. If they can get me through a marathon, they can get me through anything! And Amy just got engaged... how can you be sad with such exciting news?

Our play-day this weekend included The Art of the Brick exhibit at Union Terminal which was all about taking pictures and enjoying sculptures big and small! This particular piece took up to 75,000 legos! I can't even imagine the patience it took to create these pieces.

Looking forward to a night out with the girls enjoying Fork & Bottle at Metropole tomorrow night. How can you have a bad day when it includes a champagne tasting with a pairing of delicious food. Check out the upcoming menus here!

Just remember, "life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful" it just has to include a little laughter and good friends. To all those amazing, outstanding days and to the ones that just suck... 

Happy Hump Day!
