i am seriously considering compiling all these little lists into a book or something. maybe i will over the summer…what a beautiful coffee table book they would make!

today was a hard day for me. and for no particular reason. it was just one of those ugly days where your hair just won’t lay nice and getting your work done looks harder than climbing the tallest mountain….you know that feeling? …yeah.

anyway, i’m grateful these lists keep coming…for obvious reasons. just read sam’s below…

here is sam’s list of 10 things which make her terribly happy:
  1. paper chain count downs
  2. acoustic anything
  3. ducklings + puppies (OK, let’s be honest-ANY baby animal)
  4. slurpees
  5. new beginnings + second chances
  6. black + white photobooth strips
  7. white daisies
  8. art therapy counseling
  9. being the new girl
  10. freshly clean bedsheets

thank you sam!
