Pick Me Ups

A couple of weeks ago I was in a bit of a funk. The kind I was having a hard time shaking, but couldn't pinpoint exactly what was causing it. I started to try to do a few more of the things I love each day and was surprised how quickly that brightened my mood. So, sweet friends, here are a few of my favorite pick me ups...

Walks outside - if it is sunny, bonus points.

Fresh flowers (preferably peonies, ranunculus or tulips)

Hot water with lemon and a mint leave (this is new, but I'm hooked)

Being around sweet little ones. We've been blessed with 4 kids next door who are always so eager to play and help us with anything. You cannot be around them and have a bad day, it just isn't possible. Also, Facetiming with my niece and nephew - especially when my sweet niece requested to speak with Preston only so she could tell him to make me a 'paper heart with hands on it' for Mother's Day. Melt!

Watching this. Over and over and over.

Reading this great article on making an effort to build a community (Yes, I did immediately sign up for a ton of meet ups and community groups after reading this!)
