A Blog-worthy Day

Last night, (when Giovanni woke me up at 2:30 and I couldn't go back to sleep), I determined that today would be a good day.  A blog-worthy day.  Not because anything special was happening, but because I would choose to find the beauty and happiness around me.

However, today started out kind of bad.

Nothing really bad happened, I just was in a grouchy mood and couldn't seem to get out of it.  All I could focus on was the negative.....messy house (although it isn't that bad), kids not doing chores, etc.

Well, thankfully somewhere along the way things got better.

Here are a few things this afternoon that made me smile...
This gerber daisy plant that I bought at the grocery store for 5 reias (around 3 dollars).  It has 3 blooms on it and 3 more waiting to come up.  I love how it looks in our dining room.
Funny puppies who wouldn't let Ansley do her sit-ups.
A sweet husband who washed the car and then took me out on a date.
A neighborhood park, and kids who evidently actually DO know how to play together without fighting.
He was having fun watching his brothers and sister play soccer.

But, then decided he would get in on some action, too.

Hope you found a lot to be happy about today, too!


  1. Thanks for allowing yourself to look for the positive elements in your day. That encouraged me! BTW - I miss my car!

  2. Your table is beautiful! That would make me happy too. I want to see some video of Giovanni's conversation skills!
