Last few weeks have been a bit trying for me as I have been doing things that are
out of my comfort zone.
Change - whether it's positive or negative - is always stressful to some degree.
These five things in my life have kept me sane these past few weeks and have always put a smile on my face; when I had the pleasure of being in contact with them.
I like buying flowers for myself. My grandmother was a flower arrangement teacher in Japan, and is very knowledgeable about flowers. Over the years I tried to learn, but I have stayed truly ignorant.
I just adore all of them, plain and simple.
Being a regular Trader Joe's customer, it's very easy for me to buy flowers, and I have kept some kind of flower in my room at all times.
I added the lighter pink colored ones to my other one in my previous post.
2. My neighbor's dogs
My love for cats is basically borderline insane, but I love all animals.
These two always looks through the potted flowers whenever I drive up to my house, sometimes taking turns.
They make me smile.
3) Panini and Iced Espresso from Dialog Cafe
This is my newest discovery.
I have been working on my laptop a lot and to avoid sitting in my room all day, I have been venturing out to different coffee places that has free WiFi.
Naturally I have been hitting up the chain stores, but one day, I came across this gem.
Family owned and operated, home made Italian food - mostly under $8.
The best Iced Espresso I have ever had -- and great location.
I have been there for lunch two days in a row this week.
4) My new Tory Burch flats
What more can I say?
5) Natural Peanut Butter and 12 Grain Crackers from Trader Joe's
I've been snacking a lot and this is hands down the best thing I have that doesn't make me cringe when I think about just how much I have consumed -- or am I fooling myself?
What makes you feel good when you're a bit overwhelmed?
