oh happy day

Wednesday, March 7

Skirt: Gap, Belt: Thrifted, Blazer: Nordstrom, Tshirt: F21, Necklace: c/o Windsor {slightly different}, collar: cut from an old vest, sunglasses: c/o Windsor, Lipstick: NARS heatwave
Maybe it's the fact that Everett slept all the way from 10:30pm - 5:00am last night or maybe it's the fact that James Taylor is on and I have a bowl of blackberries in front of me, but I happen to be feeling particularly cheery and in love with the world today. Kisses all around! You hear me? You are getting kissed today world! To daylight savings, thanks for coming this Sunday. Me and Everett's next round of "you are my sunshine" is just for you pal. To my heating pad, my husband would like to thank you for keeping me a happy lady during this special week in our lives. To my delicious baby boy, your eyebrows are basically the light of my life. To the pancakes I will be eating in a few minutes, you were the best I ever had. To the weather that will be 70 degrees today, I will truly enjoy soaking you up on a walk with a friend. To the yellow flowers in my front yard, DANG you are ridiculously good looking. To my air drying hair, dude you can frizz up all you want. Show the world that magnificent frizz. My baby loves touching and eating you better that way. And to the book that I've been trying to finish for a long time, thanks for letting me read you a few interrupted sentences at a time. We'll get there.

:)beautiful Sydney. You contributed to a cheery start to my morning as well. Love that the backdrop to your photo is looking springy also, no snow! I love when bloggers start sharing bits of spring in their area, reminds me it is on its way to the upper Midwest.

Dani said...

Love moments like that! It's so easy to get caught up in the stresses of everyday life, that it's a breath of fresh air when you get a moment, and you're like, "Uhm, actually, my life is really awesome!"

Hope your day continues to be sunny and happy!

You can reach so many people with your blog! :)

You know that I love your style. But I mostly read your blog for your detectible writing. I love this post so much! Yay for sunshine and good days! Oh and sleep! I remember those newborn days! I hate to tell you this, but my five year old still gets up at the crack of dawn. The difference, though, is that she can get herself what she needs. Enjoy Everett while he is little the best you can (especially the eyebrows)!

It's a skirt! I was looking at these pictures for a full minute trying to figure out why you didn't show off those cool pant legs... but it's because they in fact are not pants at all! I truly love this outfit but I wish you hadn't posted about voting in it.

Hey Sydney! Sorry if this seems like a weird request, but would you consider watching this and sharing it with others on your blog?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc

or the website here:

http://s3.amazonaws.com/kony2012/kony-4.html

I am not at all affiliated with the organization, but I saw this video and would love to help their efforts in spreading the word. I thought popular blogs with a high following would be the perfect place to share it. I think if you were to watch it, you would also be moved and inspired to share.

And no worries if you'd rather pass. Just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. Thanks!

I love you and how happy you are! Thanks for reminding me to celebrate the little things today!
