Some things, no matter how many times I see or experience them, never fail to bring a smile to my face. Like this video MeMe recorded of Lilly acting as piano teacher while I played the song I composed.

It's been watched over and over and over at our house, but still brings giggles and snorts of laughter each time. And it's moments like these that make me thankful for a video camera to record these candid moments, moments that are hard to capture with a photograph. 


When I spied telltale brown truck with the letters UPS emblazoned in gold, I giddily ran out to meet it. I fairly snatched the package out of the poor man's hands, eagerly ripped it open, and immediately fell in love. New shoes, especially oxfords, make me dreadfully happy.

Classes are done for the year. Finished. Over with. An impromptu dance to Rolling in the Deep ensued, me ecstatically waving my hands in the air. Y'all, summer is becoming a reality. The summer that I am beyond excited for, as I have lots of traveling planned  my favorite. Visiting new places, seeing different things and photographing along the way thrills me.
Now to deal with finals. It's safe to say the weekend will be spent cramming. Eek.

This illustration makes me wish I could draw. Perfection. It's technically a drawing of a magazine editor, but I'm going to say it's a blogger instead ;) Pinterest, how I love you for introducing me to so many gorgeous things.

Fresh flowers brighten any room. All the new life that's blooming makes me so happy, as it translates into sweet smelling blossoms scattered in vases throughout the house.

Thunderstorms late at night  the booming and crashing paired with the drumming of rain on the roof makes me feel so cozy and complacent in my bed. Add a good book to get lost in and it's one of the best things in the world.

I like to write silly things on my hand  if nothing else, it makes others laugh ;)

What has been making you happy this week?
