thursday perspective

today was a breath of fresh air kind of thursday. where encouragement and gratitude meet up in agreement with the weather and decide to make even the most normal of everydays seem that much shinier. and it got me thinking about how much of the day falls back on perspective. how our lives, our jobs, our relationships, are what we make them. and how much we miss when we let others or circumstances or even our own negativity dictate our outlook.
anyways, today could have been a regular thursday...and in a lot of ways it was. but it was also messy bedhead hair with a new dress. finding a 2 year old piece of gum still stuck on the wall and deciding it's sentimental enough to leave and work into the vignette.
 it was extra puppy scratches despite extra puppy messes.
 mixing work with 20 minute coffee date pleasure for the 2nd time this week.
 it was skipping town (or grocery shopping) to go after-school exploring with my guy. and you can bet your bottom dollar when we happened upon the empty theater stage in the park that i twirled and pirouetted and curtsied while max lay face down stage left in embarrassment.
regardless, today was a lot of things. most importantly, it was a wave a hello, thank you kindly, to your shadow kind of day.
but only because that's the way we choose to see it.

  1. I agree that life is what you make of it. Usually those "ordinary days" that aren't really so ordinary because you just look at them with such a thirst for life are even better than days when extraordinary things happen. You know what I mean?

  5. Yes, this. I usually let my day get ruined way to easily, and for what? You're always there for me with a reminder about the gifts in life, Katie- thanks!

    ALSO, can we talk about that amazing needlepoint or whatever it is in the first picture!!?? I've seen it poking in the corner of a couple photos now and it is takin' my breath away!
