"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."

Oh, what a day is today.

"Cherish all your happy moments; they make a fine cushion for old age."

On that note, here are a few things that make for happy moments in my life:
  • Maine sunshine...always accompanied by a breeze
  • my "sleep!" playlist that literally lulls me to sleep every single night
  • mimosas, or just plain ol' champagne with raspberries!
  • comfy, well worn minnetonka loafers that I can wear all summer
  • scouring the flea markets
  • old hardcover books
  • my obnoxious, loud, snuggling, overwhelming, crazy, singing, sarcastic, curious, large, protective family.
  • delicious grilled food
  • french braids
  • crazy dogs with unbelievable personalities
  • crab cakes with cilantro mayo, or salmon cakes with homemade cucumber dill sauce!
  • summer adventures; movie nights with fifteen siblings & cousins, bowling, beach days and nights, make-your-own-pizza and kebab creation evenings, bonfires, night time Hide-n-Seek, jewelry making with the girls, TIE DYE DAY!, grocery store adventures, mini golfing, and strolling the streets of Bath in general. 
  • creating the perfect summer playlist
  • coconut shampoo & conditioner

C 'est une belle vie!!
