Smile.

I did a bit of this today... for the little things. I smiled because I loved the color shirt I was wearing.. smiled at my iced coffee, smiled when I talked with my husband, smiled at the baby snails outside my office door, smiled at my accomplishments today, smiled after I cleaned the office, smiled at the beautiful raspberries I bought, smiled at my puppy when she snuggled up to me on the couch, smiled at the thought of dinner, smiled because my babe should be home in about an hour or less.. there's a lot more I smiled about today and I am going to keep smiling because it is almost certainly better than the alternative..

I'm learning to really be a positive person.. not some of the time, not when things are going well, not when it suits me but as much as I possibly can and in the face of embarrassment, sadness, anger,disappointment... doesn't mean I don't experience or won't accept and embrace those emotions, just making a point to be an uplifting and optimistic individual.

I also smiled when I made these...

I apologize for the not so great photo but it was after dark and I was just working with kitchen lighting. (...been too lazy to put my light box back up after the shoot)

This is me trying my hand at homemade veggie burgers and I learned something huge: they are STUPIDLY easy to make at home. Not that we have ever really bought tons of packaged veggie burgers but this........ this was good. The perfect crunch texture in the middle... Mmm...Mmm.......Mmmmmm. I liked them if you couldn't tell.
