3 Things that made me smile this weekend...
Upon a friend's recommendation we started Orange is the New Black, a new Netflix series, and I'm so glad we did. It's getting a ton of buzz around the internet, and for good reason- it's fabulous. It's also Patton Oswalt approved, so that should tell you something. In a nutshell it's about a woman being sent to prison for a crime she committed years back when she lived a totally different life. It's fascinating, funny, and incredibly addicting. I've been binge-watching it every chance I get, and I highly, highly recommend it. And on a related note, if you're into reading the book first, be sure to check out the memoir! I just ordered it myself.
2. My "Baby Sprinkle"
This past week I had a mini version of a baby shower (just a sprinkle) and it was the perfect end to a sad couple of weeks. Being around my closest friends and family was medicine for my soul and I left Veronica's house that afternoon feeling so happy, and so, so grateful. I'll have a whole post dedicated to it later this week but it was definitely the high point of my weekend, and I'm still smiling.
3. This baby
I am so in love with my niece Lucy. She is seriously THE happiest baby I have ever met in my life- so smiley and so sweet- and she never fails to brighten up any room she's in. I really believe she is going to be one of those very special people who has a gift for making others happy, and I feel very lucky that I get to be her Aunt. This weekend she came up for a visit and it was so fun holding her and making her smile that big, gummy smile. I mean seriously. Look at that face! I love her.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend too- what made you smile?
