Simple Things

The simplest of things can often give me the greatest joy.

Take today, for example - I only did a few light chores around my apartment, put on an easy but favorite outfit with a new satchel I majorly scored on clearance yesterday (yeah!), and ran some errands which included a brief stop at Starbucks for a grande, two-pump vanilla iced latte (what a mouthful).

Yet I feel like today was near perfection! It's overcast with hints of sunshine, I hear sweet little birds chirping in the tree outside my door, and all my dishes are clean (which, if you don't know me, is a real feat!). On top of all that, one of my best friends is throwing a bash tonight which combines a million different things that deserves celebrating - it's crazy title is..

Gradubirthaversarymentorial Day Celebration.

Try saying that five times fast! Or even just once, which I still can't quite get the hang of..

I think I'm able to appreciate all of these simple things because this week was such a whirlwind of running around, going from here to there, not having a chance to stop and just breathe. So here I am, finally breathing regularly again. And add the fact that I get to see my fiancé in less than a week tops everything else going on right now. I can't even tell you how giddy I feel!

The pictures below document a similarly simple yet fantastic day (notice my giddy face) that I spent with my fiancé a few days before he left for boot camp...

Enjoy your three-day weekend everyone! Any special plans out there that have outrageously long titles like the party I'm going to?
