Isn’t that the Hershey slogan?
I’m borrowing it today.
Today was a very upsetting day for me, for reasons that I’m not at liberty to share, but even in spite of heartache, there were plenty of things that made me smile.
This morning, I realized that this little beauty that I found under the deck on Friday:
Turned into this:
How it is managing to grow new blooms when it’s no longer in soil….? I don’t know, but it makes me smile.
Another treat was meeting a new blog reader, Jennifer, and her daughter Evie, for lunch at Panera Bread, and finding that the soup schedule had changed to provide me with Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice soup on a Monday.
In addition, I wandered into the local Pottery Barn to check out their fall pillow covers that had me all atwitter a few weeks ago when my catalog arrived.
I thought that I was going to cave to the temptation of this pillow:
…for the vision of fall-ing up our master bedroom in a few weeks.
Instead, I discovered that in person, I much prefer this pillow:
It’s got the same tone of the aqua/robin egg blue that I needed, with the perfect shade of red/rust that I wanted….and it is $10 cheaper than the first one! Score!
Then, our final stop of the day was this great bookstore at the mall that has a wonderful children’s area. Rumor has it that this bookstore is the place to be for story hour. We’ll have to check that out.
But while Seth did this:
I read these:
If you’re willing to spend $14 (which, sadly, I wasn’t), I’d recommend either of these books by Peter H. Reynolds. They are darling….and sure to make you unwrap a smile, too.
