3 Things That Made Me Smile Today

I had a rough day yesterday, couldn’t sleep last night, had to make some scary phone calls TODAY, and I fully expected to wake up in a funk. Despite all that, today was pretty great. Here are three things that made me smile:

1. Shortly after I woke up this morning, Josh asked, “Do you wanna go on a date to First Watch for lunch?” um, YES! First Watch is breakfast/brunch/lunch place that I LOVE so I wasn’t going to say no to that for any reason ever. I was so excited to go on a date that I even did my hair & make up and felt really pretty 🙂 We had a great time. I don’t know why just leaving the house to spend time together make such a difference, but it really lifted my spirits.

2. The weather! It’s cool and crisp and the comforting smell of leaves decaying is in the air.. I love Fall, even if we only get a few weeks of this mild weather before it gets too cold. Sweaters, boots, colorful leaves, and all that “basic girl” stuff.. It totally makes me smile.

What are three things that made you smile today?

  1. 1. Closing with a coworker at my new job who is super encouraging.
    2. Hugging my dad before he goes on his big hunting trip with my uncles every year.
    3. Taking a quick nap and watching Over the Garden Wall, my favorite show, before work tonight.

    After a rough night, I really appreciated this post to encourage me to keep my chin up. Thanks Kelli, it’s the little things that God gives us. 🙂


  2. Spur-of-the-moment married dates are the best! I’ve been wanting to go to First Watch for awhile but haven’t got the chance. Glad to know it is good!

    Three things:
    1. When I came out of the bathroom this morning, my dog was laying on my bed with her head right between her paws, staring intently at me. It was pretty clear she’d been sitting that way for a few minutes just waiting for me to come out after my shower. It was pretty hilarious and endearing.
    2. Sharing an inside joke with my mom via text on the way to work (I was riding, not driving).
    3. The gorgeous morning fog on my commute.


  3. Your hair looks so pretty and curly! I am also so happy it’s fall. I’m a bit late to the party, but three things that made me smile today are:

    1) doing Christmas shopping on Etsy and finding the perfect gift for a good friend (yes, I’m that person who shops in September…)

    2) realizing that a scary math test isn’t this week, it’s next week–yay!!

    3) tonight I’m going to see two of my favorite littles play baseball!


  4. Your hair and make up look beautiful! I am glad you had a great date!
    That magnet is so cute. I am glad you’re enjoying the weather so much!

    Today we got to go on a horse-drawn carriage ride today as a family as we got a tour and it was really awesome. That made me smile! We also got to go to the Fair Trade cafe nearby that we’ve been going to and I drink their cocoa. I smiled by drinking its deliciousness. Also, seeing the cute little piggies run around on the farm we visited today made me smile. Their cute little curly-cue tails are so sweet. Piggies are one of my favorite animals (and no, I don’t eat them).
