Happy Friday!! Finally!! I am so happy the weekend is here. This week has just been a little stressful for me, which is rare (praise God), but I am exhausted. I have a few fun plans for the weekend but I am mostly looking forward to resting. My big news is that I got an iPhone last weekend (I was way past due, I know), so I am having lots of fun figuring out how to use it. Here were the things I captured with it this week and other things that are making me smile:
First picture I took with my iPhone. I don't think I'll ever get sick of my view.
The Emoji Free app for iPhones. The amount of symbols you can use is endless. Painting nails and high heels are you kidding me??? Best thing ever! Thanks Molls.
The interior of a unit at the Encore (one of my company's buildings). I get to work on a project right now where I go to owners' units and see how they've decorated and designed them while our photographer takes pictures. I am in heaven. Getting to talk to people who love the Pearl and our building and who have amazing style. It is so much fun! So I've snapped a few pictures for myself.
Cute chalk drawing on a sunny beautiful day. The cool part was that this was in Tanner Springs Park and that is literally what the view looks like from that picture. Water, fence, bushes, and then Fremont Bridge in the background! So neat and an unexpected smile in my day :)
"cannot alter one thing.
if I am a princess in rags and tatters,
i can be a princess inside.
it would be easy to be a princess
if I were dressed in cloth of gold,
but it is a great deal more of a triumph
to be one all the time
when no one knows it. "
frances hodgson burnett, a little princess
That quote that I came across in this blog.
5 weeks from today I will be here. In the hot desert sun. I can make it that long. I think.
Today is my parent's 33rd anniversary. I feel so grateful to have such an amazing mom and dad and for the wonderful family God has blessed me with. So proud of you two and can't thank you enough for who you are and the example you've set for me. Also, everything about this picture kind of makes me want to cry right now - I miss our house, I miss CA, I miss my brother, I miss the sunshine, I wish we could all be together. But mostly I want to cry out of happiness for the incredible life I've been able to live. It has been filled with so much joy.
One more fave family photo while I'm at it...Love you Mom and Dad.
I hope you had lots to smile about this week and I wish you a weekend of warmth and whimsy (I love that word) xoxo
P.S. Your "best, can't-live-without iPhone app" suggestions would be much appreciated! :)
