After a weekend of perfect summer weather (sorry, Colorado friends!), there is some rain forecasted this week.  While I’m not super excited about that, I’d much rather the rain come when I have to go to work than when I want to be at the pool/lake/not work.

So, I’m choosing to focus on the positives, and what better way to do that than with this cheery yellow?  Honestly, is there any happier color than a bright, sunny yellow?  Wearing it reminds me of my Clinique Happy days in middle school.  I used to say I could not NOT be happy while wearing that perfume.  And then one day I woke up and my body chemistry had changed, and I’ve not liked it since.  I’m still a little sad about it.

1 - yellow blouse, green shoesIn the spirit of chasing away the Monday morning/rainy day/whatever-the-reason blues, I thought it would be fun to do as Julie Andrews taught us (you know, raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens) and list a few things that always make us happy – no matter the circumstances.  I’ve found that thinking about happy things genuinely does improve my mood, so why not spend a few moments right now, doing just that?  I’ll start:

  • My “special occasion” perfume, Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme Intense – even if it’s not a special occasion
  • Fancy cupcakes
  • A margarita after a day in the sun
  • Clean sheets (even better if I didn’t have to put them on)
  • A full Hulu queue of my favorite shows
  • Psalm 37

Those are a few of mine – what about you?  I can’t wait to hear your favorite things!



  1. I am so loving all the bright colored tennis shoes lately 🙂 That outfit is so adorable!

      Thanks, Rebecca Jo! I love them, too – and was glad to find knock-offs, since Keds now run about $40!! (Thanks for making them popular, and therefore expensive, T.Swift!)
