Making Me Smile

Things that are making me smile today.
My new Journey Girl necklace from Becky
I love this girl.
I love her stories.
I love her heart.
And yes, I love her Etsy Shop.

My new delicious smelling candle
that Kris, Genn and Erika got me
that I may or may not have tried to lick.
And this wonderful pillow mist.
Says it will help me to relax and think clearly.
Well, I'm very relaxed.

This beautiful painting of a Chickadee
that I found in my mailbox when I got back
from California.
Laurie told me that Chickadees need to be in pairs.
I had only bought one.
She was so right!

A jar full of peanut M&M's because my husband
knows me and keeps them comin'.
Sharing a birthday weekend with this kid.
Happy Birthday Katie!
