HAPPY Friday dears!!  I hope y’all have great weeks!  I feel like my week has been full of lessons and realizations, which while not always delightful in the moment, have definitely been necessary.  So, I’m looking froward to a weekend of being at peace with things I’ve realized about myself this week and some time with my friends!  What are you doing this weekend?  Every week I share pictures (via Instagram, or my regular iPhone camera) of things that made me smile.

These are some things that made me smile this week:

  • DIY coasters spotted on DIYRaven.  They are totally going on my to-do list!


  • Grabbing a quick lunch from one of my favorite mom and pop stores.


  • This photo of beautiful brown girl ballerinas, spotted on Dr. Blay’s Instagram feed :-).


  • Speaking on a panel about social media to high school students.


  • A quick outfit change for an impromptu dinner.


  • Girl Scout cookies!!!!  (Eating several boxes of these, nullifies all of my exercise for the year, lol)


  • Watching my design ideas come together for a project at work :-).


  • A midday mani touchup break.


Your turn to share!!!  What are some things that made you smile this week?
