Happy Friday!  Is everyone excited for the weekend?  I don't have too much going on, so I am going to try my best to focus my attention on relaxing, and doing a few things around the house.  Which to me is always fun! photo 4I came across this great Maya Angelou quote, and thought I would share it.  What a beautiful reminder, especially during times that may seem challenging or upsetting.  We all have a shining light within, and while it is always a choice (and sometimes a truly difficult one), we each have an opportunity to shine that light.  How awesome is that?!  Will you be shining your light today?

photo 3It's the little things in life that make me smile, and bring me so much joy.  Yesterday, I was having a rather crappy day, and while my day was getting so much better, I still wasn't 100% shining my light.  Ha!  I spoke with a friend earlier in the day, and later on she surprised me by stopping by my work and dropping off a latte.  How sweet, right?  I have so many wonderful people in my life, and while I don't get to see all of them all of the time, and I am so grateful for the times I do.  Thanks, Em!  Love you!

photo 2These flowers were given to me by two of my wonderful cousins that visited us almost two weeks ago.  YES, these flowers are two weeks old, and going so strong.  Gorgeous and vibrant, huh? Again, so grateful for the little things in life.

I wish you all a magical and light filled weekend!
