for reals, people.
i'm in a good mood. i am going to completely blame it on the sunshine - which inspired me to bring out my new favorite pair of shades from Glasses Shop. their called the salinas with clear and BRIGHT orange frames. they are the perfect pair to grab on the way to the beach or for a sunday afternoon drive. so fun! (can you tell? i'm already so ready for summer!)
and the fact that i'm having one of those weeks where things are clicking on all cylinders. you know what i'm screaming? FEELING GOOD, PEOPLE! and i'm also loving all the red and pink and hearts and lovey-dovey-ness of this week. like i told my class the other day, when they were all bashing on valentine's day. and i told them that i am one of those cliche, cheesy weirdos that actually love valentine's day, so sue me. (#michaelscott)
with how crazy and messy life can be, you got to celebrate every good thing that comes one's way. even the paper hearts and valentines candy and a sweet husband who loves me every single day. (hashtag blessed. hashtag lucky. hashtag i know i got it good.)
and because of my good mood, i think i'm in a list mood, too. you, too?
good. i knew we were good friends.
