1. I looked at a baby. As in, I visited my good friend Jaclyn, who has just had her little babe. Seeing little Miguel instantly put a smile on my face--there's something about babies that reminds you of the goodness of life.
2. Drank some homemade juice. Jaclyn owns a deli, so through visiting her, I was treated to some fresh veggie juice: beets, broccoli, spinach, kale, parsley. I'm on an energy high right about now!
3. Drove in the sunshine. I had some time to drive around a little before heading to work, which always eases the wanderer's soul. Not to mention a little John Mayer in the mix. How could I not smile over the perfect combination of a slight breeze coinciding with some "City Love?" Sigh. Only John brings out the swoon in an otherwise unromantic girl.
4. Made a countdown. This is based off of the paper chains I used to make as a kid (to countdown to Christmas). Too lazy to cut up construction paper, a whiteboard will suffice:
Basically, I'm smiling today: Juice, babies, countdowns, John Mayer? My life is pretty sweet.
How do you make Mondays better?
