feeling mildly inspired

i have been working really hard to study for my math final this semester.
and really evaluating what i am doing in college.


i have been feeling kinda (okay EXTREMELY) overwhelmed. and maybe a little lost.


at work today while browsing some of my favorite blogs that always lift my spirit and make me smile (examples here & here) i found lists of simple, beautiful, little things that make every day great.

i was inspired to take a breath and remember what makes this journey called life even more beautiful.

1#

E: "c. do you love me?"

C:"more than anything in the whole entire wide world."

E: "you promise, promise?"

C: "promise, promise" then he kisses me on the head.

and i smile,because i know he means it.


2# picnics in the park

3# new sexy high heels

4# the smell of fresh laundry

5# ice cold diet coke

6# chicken fingers & fries submerge in ranch & ketchup

7# sunday dinners with my family

8# salt lake valley sunsets (best in the world)

9# warm summer nights staring at the stars

10# kisses from my c.

oh the wonderful simple pleasures in life.
