I've had an incredible week. One of those weeks that's filled with so many special little things that really makes you appreciative of everything you have. Here are some moments that I really enjoyed this week... & I'm telling you, they are the littlest things but they make me so happy.
1.) Finding FruitStripe gum at one of my favorite stores downtown, Mommalicious. It was just like being a kid again! Wacky flavors that only last for a minute, temporary tattoos on the gum wrappers, and fun packaging. I gave a piece to each of my friends and loved their reactions (& then the rest melted because I left it in the sun. Oh well.)
2.) Thrift score of the week! I picked up this Geisha lamp earlier this week. She was only $8! Can't wait to find a shade that's fitting to top her off. Made out of porcelain in the 1960's.
3.) These two. Minx & Sandi. I can't tell you how loved I feel when they rush to the door to greet me when I get home from a meeting or an afternoon adventure. They love it when I take them on long walks, and put leftover rice in their food dishes, they curl up next to me in bed in the morning when I'm all by myself. I swear that Sandi knows me better than most humans.
4.) Swimming on a day when it's 101 degrees outside! Neal let a few of us spend a couple of hours splashing around in his pool yesterday. It was so refreshing and the perfect way to cool off after working for while. Of course, I took my underwater camera with. How else would I get goofy incriminating pictures like this?
5.) The way the sky gets so dark and moody after a huge rain storm with thunder and lightening. In the country, storms always feel so much heavier. Aren't these pretty dark shots?
6.) Last but not least - Being able to make lots of fun jewelry and accessories. I made a whole bunch of starfish headbands because I've had many requests for them at work. Hopefully these little guys find nice homes over the weekend. I love seeing other people enjoy the things that I craft. Awesome!
I hope that you're having an enjoyable week as well! Try to stay cool in the crazy East Coast heat waves. It's been over 100 degrees for more than 5 days. Take it easy this weekend!
