Making me smile

I’ve been smiling a lot lately. Here are a few reasons why…

-Spring weather.
-Having a coffee date with a good friend.
-Receiving a really encouraging card from my mom.
-Baking an order of Hearty Handfuls granola.
-Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.
-Enjoying my environmental science class.
-Funny memes from my brother.
-Jimmy’s dad sending me pictures of how he used the bread I baked for him.
-My sister. She makes me laugh and is just all around amazing.
-Celebrating 5.5 years with Jimmy!

Some pictures of all of these awesome things…


Spring weather = rain boots!


My sister is one cool cat. Check out those cute freckles! Love ’em.


Dunkin’ Donuts is the stuff.


Flowers make me happy.


Jimmy’s dad made french toast from a loaf of challah I baked for him.


A custom order of Hearty Handfuls granola! Peanut butter, almond, and chocolate peanut butter flavors. Yum. I always taste test every batch to ensure maximum deliciousness ;-).


I’m currently learning about how pressurized water nuclear reactors work in my environmental science class. I actually find it really interesting!

What’s making you smile lately?


  1. I had an iced mocha at Dunkin the other day and it was delicious :). We have a lot of Dunkins around here and I love coffee anyway! Glad things are going well for you lately.

  2. Aww, just reading this makes me smile! I’ve never had Dunkin Donuts so I can’t vouch for that making me happy. I don’t like coffee at all! I feel so weird in the blogging world because everyone drinks it. Congrats on 5.5 years with Jimmy! That’s amazing! Here’s to many more years together πŸ™‚

    1. I’m glad it made you smile! Dunkin is great! I bet you would like some of their sweeter flavored drinks or even food, if you ever get a chance to visit a Dunkin. Thank you for the congrats! I love him so much πŸ™‚

  3. I am def smiling about the weather finally warming up! I have already gone for 3 runs! Only 2-3 miles each but getting back into it. Also smiling about all the weddings this spring/summer!! Yours is just one of 4 I will be attending πŸ™‚ And big time smiling about the puppy the family I work for is getting this weekend! My job just got a whole lot more fun!

    1. Yay for you getting back into running! You’re so speedy! And I am totally smiling about weddings lately, too πŸ™‚ I am super excited! You have to text me a picture of the puppy when they have it!

  4. Hahaha, “I always taste each batch to ensure maximum deliciousness”

    You crack me up. I’m loving the spring weather in Pittsburgh. Seriously, no more -1 degree days! I think we’re in the clear! I’m loving country music, coffee, candles, reading…EVERYTHING! πŸ™‚

    1. It’s true! I have to make sure it’s not poisonous hahaha. I am loving this weather, too!! I haven’t seen any snow in the forecast, so that makes me one happy gal!!

  5. My sister is a sweet blonde headed, blue eyed, freckled faced lady. I have a few freckles, but not as many as she does. I think they are super sweet! Seeing the picture of your sister made me think of mine! πŸ™‚
