Life is Good

Today I choose to be happy.
There are too many things to smile about and be thankful for, than to let the little things get the best of me. I can't get this big grin off my face and I love this feeling... life is so sweet!

.:: Smile Worthy ::.


1) Hello Spring Weather!

Today is absolutely gorgeous. This weather reminds me of when I lived on my own in lovely San Francisco back in the day. My sweet home away from home. Missing the sea lions barking on the pier, the Mission, beautiful people who taught me how to truly love life, and all the many lessons I learned during those 4 amazing months.

2) Many Blessings

So very thankful for all the beautiful souls in my life. I feel very blessed to have the world's best parents, have my brother moving to KC next month, and a sassy sister to keep me young and hip! ;)

I'm very grateful to have friends who make me laugh 'til my sides ache and share life with. And couldn't be more thankful for my sweet Adam, who shares my laughter and dries my tears. I couldn't possibly have asked for a more respectable and amazing man to love!

3) A Job That I Love

I am constantly reminded about the difference I am able to make in the lives of cancer patients and their families. Even on the most difficult days, they remind me to live fully and love whole heartedly.

I love that I am challenged by my relationship building and business partnership with the healthcare systems I take care of - I'm learning such valuable things! I also have the world's nicest and best co-workers/friends ever! I feel very humbled and lucky to look forward to work.

4) Spontaneous Fun

BF and I got invited to go see the hit musical, Rock of Ages, with our couple friends as the tour hits KC tonight! I had mentioned several weeks ago that I wish we would've bought tickets, but now they are offered to us for free (thanks Erin love!). I cannot even begin to express how excited I am for our little double date tonight! Eeee!!

5) My Bloggy Buddies

I seriously adore you guys. From encouraging comments to recommending the perfect mascara (my lashes now look great BTW - thanks to Maybelline Lash Stilleto and YOU!).

Thanks for making me love this creative outlet even more than I already do! I hope to get to know you newbies too! xo

  7. It makes me happy to see other bloggerinas happy! So thanks for the smile today!

  8. Love love love this post! You're right, there's so much to be happy about :)


    I pride myself on trying to visit everyone I follow as often as possible. I enjoy all of you so much and have deliberately surrounded myself with the type of up-beat, happy bloggers as possible.

    However, recently I have taken in my 32 year old granddaughter and her two children. It has been such a monumental change for me I am finding it hard to keep up my blogging, and my visiting.

    I hate to admit it but there have been some difficulties with adjustments (on both sides) and I find that I just don't have the time to do the things I want to do. I also seem to be letting it get me down.

    Just give me some time and I will be back on my game soon....I'm sure......kt

  10. Come back to San Francisco, or at least visit me in the Bay!! Glad this was a wonderful week for you darling, hope the trend continues!
