things that have made me smile this week

- my sweet friend Arielle saying yes to this question:

- the two huge boxes of silk flowers awaiting me at my grandparents' house, and how beautiful and richly colored and perfect they were.

- my cousin Hannah and her shennanigans.

- teenagers walking into the Starbucks I'm sitting at and fanning themselves desperately, exclaiming "I'm hot!" in this 70-degree Enumclaw weather. Hot!? (though I have to admit, I'm not used to being outside in warm weather. But coming from 118 this is very, very nice.)

- the find of an exquisite thrifted 50's dress.

- that this the wedding day of a dear friend! (2 months and 2 days for us)

- surprises for Joel =)

- American coffee shops, atmosphere included.

- shopping for pretty things I've never had to go shopping for before.

- seeing Mount Rainier from my window :)

what does not make me smile today:

being halfway around the world from Joel and having to settle for Skype (but I am very thankful for Skype).

I'm going to go join my grandpa outside now. What has made you smile/laugh/cry this week?

much love;

Oh, I'm so glad you're having a great time! Even though, missing your man is never fun! Thanks for the e-mail, I will get one out to you shortly. Having you state side is ALMOST like being your neighbor, now, if you happen to pass through Oklahoma... ;)

And yes, shopping for pretty things you've never had to shop for before. That made me grin. Hopefully you'll have some sweet friends throw you a personal shower. Those are always a blast, especially when it involves wise, Godly women. ;)

Have a great weekend!

the weekend with my family made me smile...and the road trip back with my cousin, my sister and a friend...

they tried to argue that one cannot be a hundred percent happy, I argues back. I am content and I am happy- it was such a great realization!!

PS I am excited for you!
