Brighten up


It’s Thursday. I don’t know about you but I’ve been relying on food lately to brighten up my day cause Mother Nature sure ain’t doin’ it.

Hello sweet potatoes, lots of fresh, bright greens and shenanigans. Can I have some sunshine back? My garden isn’t gonna grow with all of this craziness. I know I shouldn’t complain – as I sit here and type this my Dad is ooh-ing and ahh-ing at all of the devistating pictures from the tornadoes over the past few days – my thoughts and prayers go out to all of the victims. How awful. It’s so sad.

I have a lot to be thankful for.

So much goodness! Who needs sunshine when you’ve got bright orange carrots! HA just kidding. I’ll take the sunshine anyday. I was lucky enough to get a few days in this week and some frisbee (!!) action with some pals. I did have to go bush diving a few times for runaway frisbees and I may have permanetly stained my feet a shade of grass slash dirt brown – cute, I know!

The best part about springtime is for sure the time I manage to scoop up to be outside with friends, the sunshine and pollen. Pollen is totally not necessary but if it means I have to deal with a few extra noseblows to be out and about, that’s alright. They make tissues for a reason, right? Between classes and stressing out like mad about the last few weeks of school, I need some leisure and exercise in non-exercise form. You got me? Good.

My friends and I skipped our usual exercise classes this week in favor of frisbee, grass stains and getting sunburnt.

And loved every second of it.

I’m off to finish munching on my egg pizza with extra cheese and hoping the sun stays around town this weekend.

Gimme some mo’ sunshine!

What’s your favorite springtime activity?

What brightened your week?

Peace and love!

    The sunshine’s been MIA over here too, not digging it so much!
    I was just watching some news on that tornado mess a couple hours ago, unbelievable. So sad, and so scary!

    I love spring WALKS. I’m so excited to be able to start up long walks in the sunshine (or the NIGHT!) again after a very looooong winter. As for week brightening… finishing up the last of my exams certainly helped! As did a bit of retail therapy ;)
