A List.

Lately life has been a rollercoaster and I haven't been feeling very positive. I'm really trying to make an effort to be positive about everything in my life, no matter how bad it is. Feeling shitty and getting upset do me NO good at all. So...here are the things that make me happy, things that make me smile, things I adore : )

  • Long bubble baths
  • Pedicures
  • Watching the sunset (cheesy, I know!!)
  • Intellectual conversation
  • Reading a good book
  • Crying happy tears
  • Painting Katelyn's nails

  • The way Cole says "mama"
  • Watching Allen paint
  • Hearing Katelyn sing
