Of course I’m smiling. After three+ hours of running, I am ecstatic to see the finish line! Haha. Actually, I am thrilled of my accomplishment. Never ever did I think I could or would run this much. And the wave of emotion that came over me as I came down the final stretch was the neatest feeling.
I’d say its a pretty good race pic. I’m mean, after all it could be worse.
We headed to one of our favorite dinner spots – Islands. Look up to see the gorgeous cloud formation. A couple of us were both snapping shots of it in unison. I had to share the the awesomeness with you all!
I’m on an Indian Pale Ale kick. Brewsky! Island’s Pale Ale is not very hoppy, but it is tasty.
I wanted a salad, but they were all chicken on the menu! I was craving fish. So I ordered the Mahi Mahi tacos. And at the taco filling with a fork. Even though I didn’t eat the corn tortillas, I made up on carbs with the fries (kryptonite).
And upon leaving, am adorned with a Beautiful sunset. Score on the little things that make me happy!
This makes me happy, too.
There was some baking going on in my house. This baking brillance is called a BROOKIE – a brownie topped with a cookie. It’s freaking delicious and I owe all the thanks to my beautiful friend and my child whipping this delectable batch of brookies today.
Its the little things that count
I often believe it’s the little things are the most important in life. I try every day to enjoy such little things, even if I only have 5 minutes to spare. To help recenter and make my even the most stressful days meaningful in a good way. Some of the daily things I relish in:
- A strong, hot cup of coffee early in the morning.
- Reading before bedtime
- Walking barefoot in the grass
- When my feet hit the dirt during a run
- Taking an early morning swim when all is quiet
- Watering my plants
- Writing in my journal
- Tuesday’s dinner and drinks with my friends
- Talking with my kids
- Beautiful scenery and hiking
My little moments of bliss.
My Question to You: What are some of the little things in life that make you happy?
