things that make me happy


These purple irises are simply beautiful! As my dear boyfriend cooked a delicious dinner of orange chicken, asian noodles, and various peppers stir-fried to perfection, two of my best girlfriends arrived. These lovely flowers were a gift from one of them...a heartfelt gesture to brighten my days and lift my spirits. After dinner, we indulged in a succulent strawberry shortcake for dessert and settled into the plush couches to finish watching American Idol and House. This seemingly simple night was just what I needed...delicious food, wonderful company, and these stunning purple irises!

Those flowers are beautiful, a perfect background to your lovely evening. I adore flowers and just looking at them has me aching to grab my camera, jump on my bike, and spend the morning soaking up all those beautiful spring flowers!

Things can only get better from here :)

I suffered (suffer) from anxiety too. You just want it to go away and I know there are always some deep down reasons, but sometimes it is difficult and a long process to figure it out.

I am glad you are feeling better.
