In an effort to help us with that last one, I actually bought Mr. K and I tear-off calendars for our work desks. They are "The Calendar of Awesome". Each day is a new "awesome little thing". For example, January 1 was "the first scoop out of a brand new jar of peanut better". Awesome! It's fun to tear off each day and think about all of those little things that make life great. Today, we will feature my own list of awesome little things:
The smell of coffee in the morning
Putting on comfy shoes (in my case, Ugg slippers) after being in heels all day
Finally getting into your seat on the plane after a long travel day.
Bonus if it's a window seat!
The satisfying "pop" of opening up a champagne bottle
Waking up in the middle of the night thinking it's time to get up. Checking your clock and seeing you still have 3 hours to sleep
The first day Starbucks brings back the Pumpkin Spice Latte in the fall
Cuddles with sweet puppies
Getting mail. The good kind, like a card or note from a friend. None of that bill or jury duty notice crap!
The first night in bed after you have washed your sheets
When Olivia Pope says:
Perfectly twisting apart an Oreo
Getting your nails done
Laughing until your sides hurt
This clip never fails to make me laugh
When a deadline is extended
When a restaurant serves Coke, not Pepsi
Seeing old friends and catching up like no time has passed
That first feeling of relief after you have been dreading something
The smell of gasoline
Ok, whatever, some people like fresh cut grass, I like gasoline, ok!? Get off me!
