Inspired by Gretchen Rubin's book, The Happiness Project, I know there is pleasure to be found in writing what makes one happy - even if it's just one sentence (or photo) a day. Thus, starts a Friday ritual of mine - to document the good in every day, through words and pictures.
"5 years. 365 days. 1825 happy moments captured."
Saturday: an impromptu, much-needed visit from Mom, who came bearing gifts of books for Cruz and chocolate shakes for all. Because sometimes, Moms really do make everything better.
Sunday: Cruz was a mommy’s boy today. The minute he reaches out and nuzzles his head on my shoulder, all of the cares of the world just drift away.
Monday: Eating the most delicious brownies at Gabe and Gina’s, topped with ice cream, fresh raspberries, and whipped cream. Clutching our bowls and being comforted by food and occasional laughter--- the only thing better would be sweatpants and a cozy bed (and The Bachelor, right Jill!?)
Tuesday: the three of us crammed in our 'cozy' bathroom during Cruz’s bath night - the smell of lavendar-scented bath bubbles, Mumford and Sons in the background, and a happy boy in the suds.
Wednesday: A Leap Day blizzard, resulting in a welcomed night of sweats, queso dip and chips, and a Scratch cupcake for dessert.
Thursday: I stroll through Target for some retail therapy. A few things to fill Cruz's Easter basket, some sidewalk chalk, and a cute paper pinwheel. Spring is upon us.
