It's amazing how many things you notice that make you smile, when you're actually on the lookout for them...it's easy to see how seeking out joy and gratitude can turn a day or a life around.
There were so many wonderful things about today. A half day of work only, followed by a staff party complete with an ICE CREAM TRUCK for dessert. Some days I complain about my job, but I sure would stop that pretty quick if an ice cream truck came by every day. Just sayin'.
Then on a "find the happy" whim on the way home (at 1pm!), I made a spontaneous u turn to check out a little pub that we keep hearing wonderful things about but have yet to find the time to go. So today, we went. Sat on the patio, had a beer, and more food (that I so didn't need.) But all terribly happy-making.
Home to can 7 quarts of peaches that are going to taste SO good in the dead of winter. A night of porch time and campfires. All in all, a pretty perfect day.
I'm excited to hear that there are a few others joining in in this Month of Happy! No worries in joining late, we're just getting started!
Have a beauty of a day - enjoy finding your own happy.
