Even though leaving town last week to get some writing done was a great idea, I find myself still a bit inundated with work. So this post is just a quick one -- I thought I'd share what's making me smile lately:
1. This photograph of beautiful women. It proves what I believe deep down in my soul: we were made to be all different shapes, sizes, colours, races, nationalities because it makes the world a more amazing place.
2. Random acts of kindness, including the very sweet compliment a total stranger gave me during a recent run, an unexpected gift mailed to Alex for no reason at all, and a gorgeous print sent to me by a friend and fellow photographer who I've never actually met in person before. These lovely gestures have seriously kept me going and I'm very grateful.
3. My new True Love necklace. I purchased it a few weeks ago, and it arrived this week. The two pieces of Mati's art that I chose for the pendant are meant to inspire me to use my voice in a strong, kind way, and I love how it turned out. I can't wait to wear it.
Life is good. Here's hoping you smile today, too.
