Happy Notes

I struggle with retaining good memories. In an effort to remind myself of the small and big things that made me smile throughout the day, I created this digital library of good things where I post my happy moments. Hope it brightens your day too!

Got me a Pothos friend!

I made a Bingo costume for Elli for Halloween and when he saw it, he said “cat”. 😂

I found about 20 of these pictures of Clark’s feet on my phone. Always a new adventure in my photo albums.

I decided to put all my produce on my door so it stops going to waste. It made me so happy to reorganize my fridge so it works for me.

Clark said “goodbye mama, I love you mama” when he saw I was leaving to go to the doctor.

These strawberries were in my fridge for a week and they still look like this!! I kept them in a jar and the trick worked so well. I was pumped when I saw them still alive.

Getting this orchid and ZZ plant was the highlight of my week!

May 15, 2021

I spent half an hour deciding and simultaneously terrified people thought I was trying to steal a set of fake nails at CVS but I got through it, scheduled time to put these on the SAME day I bought them, and did it! This is a big feat for me because I usually get stuck in a “I need this before I do this” loop and end up buying a bunch of things to make whatever I’m doing “perfect”. These weren’t perfect and that made me so happy to be comfortable with just doing something for myself even if it wasn’t exactly how I thought it should be.
