I keep meaning to hop on this bandwagon of sharing some things each week that are filling my heart up. It’s easy to focus on the things stressing us out and giving us grief. Here are three things making me happy this week.
- Warmer weather! The sun is finally starting to come out for us more and more. That means spending time outside, feeling so swag in our big sunnies and NO JACKET life. I love this season in between hot and cold when we are just comfortable, enjoying a cool breeze without shivering or sweating. Bring. it. on.
- The Handmaid’s Tale just premiered on Hulu and just one episode in I am hooked. I read some of the book in college and loved it but never got around to finishing it because homework and stuff. I’m excited to finally see how it ends and loving seeing the story brought to life. It’s heartbreaking but funny, suspenseful but kind of beautiful? Also Alexis Bledel is in it so really life does not get much better than this.
- Coffee with friends. I spent the morning having coffee with some of my mom friends from the kids’ school and it was so lovely to catch up and frankly get to know each other better. Sometimes I get in my own head and find myself cocooning and home instead of putting myself out there. So I’m a little too proud of myself for putting on real clothes today and being a friendly social person even though I woke up this morning fully intending to hide inside. Bonus points, I got there a little early and got to spend some time with E.E. Cummings, too.
