Day 90: 3/31/2014

For pets that miss you when you have been away from them. She has been sticking to me like glue and as annoying as that sound, it is very flattering to be so missed and wanted

Sunday, March 30, 2014

Day 89: 3/30/2014

For the hilarity of old world charm decoration and the absurdity of the very same decor. As much authenticity as this place exudes, there is something very disturbing about stuffed animals staring down at you while you read 

Saturday, March 29, 2014

Day 88: 3/29/2014

For the simple joy of watching a dog play in the snow. There's something very innocent and childlike about how they play and commune with nature. Makes my heart smile just watching her romp around

Friday, March 28, 2014

Day 87: 3/28/2014

For a silence that is unmistakable during a heavy snowfall with big fluffy flakes. The silence was never once deafening but instead comforting. It's the same comfort of being enveloped under a warm blanket on a cold day or sipping on a warm cup of coffee by the fire

Thursday, March 27, 2014

Day 86: 3/27/2014

For working to find firewood and kindling out in the yard so we can have heat for the cold winter (spring) night. Nothing feels better than knowing you had to trudge through knee high snow to collect firewood and get thoroughly exhausted for the simple pleasure of enjoying the view above

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Day 85: 3/26/2014

For a mini getaway to a cabin in the woods by the lake. Reading, hiking, and doing whatever I want for the next 6 days will be priceless. Throw in abadon and wild eating escapades and you have a near perfect week ahead

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Day 84: 3/25/2014

For a full window view from my desk at work. As much as it is overwhelming at work, nothing beats a full view of what is waiting for me after a long hard day of work - Freedom!

Monday, March 24, 2014

Day 83: 3/24/2014

For getting your team members to work with you to "steal" the comfy chairs from another team on the other side of the office. Nothing builds comradarie more than some shared mischief

Sunday, March 23, 2014

Day 82: 3/23/2014

For study Sundays instead of sleeping in and relaxing. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to study and know that I have nothing else to do except just that

Saturday, March 22, 2014

Day 81: 3/22/2014

For ridiculous cat antics so early in the morning. Nothing beats watching an animal trying to sit like a human being while chowing down on breakfast. She stayed in this position for about 10 minutes and just stared me down the entire time 

Friday, March 21, 2014

Day 80: 3/21/2014

For weak coffee and a banana, as it is what gets me through the mornings. I sometimes take for granted the fact that I am able to eat whatever I want, whenever I want. As simple and sad as this breakfast may be, it is still something that I have to fill my belly

Thursday, March 20, 2014

Day 79: 3/20/2014

For a gift to myself that is capable of making the worst days all better. Who would have thought this would make a grown woman squeal and skip around like a 5-year old

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Day 78: 3/19/2014

For small hands that are deft at applying the ridiculously small stickers on even more ridiculously smaller Lego blocks. It takes mostly patience and a steady hand, but mostly the ability not to exhale when applying the sticker

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Day 77: 3/18/2014

For Lego nights while it snows outside on an almost Spring night. One never really outgrows putting together an artwork as beautiful as a Lego set. This is especially true of their Technics line and I know I can't wait for this creation to come to life

Monday, March 17, 2014

Day 76: 3/17/2014

For mid-day lunch excursions while working from home. Nothing like a relaxing lunch with very much welcomed company to break up a crazy work day. Stress relief comes in all shapes and forms

Sunday, March 16, 2014

Day 75: 3/16/2014

For buffet brunches with close friends. I love these brunches with these particular group of people. They are as wacky and as eccentric as they come and I wouldn't trade any of them in for anything

Saturday, March 15, 2014

Day 74: 3/15/2014

For food from my childhood, my hometown, my memories. There is something about triggering your senses that brings you right back to a particular time in your life. I love being able to transport myself to when I was a kid, surrounded by family

Friday, March 14, 2014

Day 73: 3/14/2014

For a day that allows me to celebrate with a slice of pie. Happy Pi Day! (in North America) Any excuse to demolish some pie is perfectly fine by me

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Day 72: 3/13/2014

For sunny warm calm days in the middle of Winter. Being able to enjoy and bask in the sunshine and take advantage of the ability to fly is something I will always be thankful for. Impromptu cross country flights with great company is more than I could ever hope for. Afterall, today was my first day as an "airport rat" and I actually enjoy all the company

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Day 71: 3/12/2014

For throwback photos of your cousins sent by my mom. With the advent of technology, I have been able to revisit my past a lot easier than before. I am thankful I grew up with a close knit family and we were actually friends. Afterall, cousins are your first best friends right?

Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Day 70: 3/11/2014

For a surprise warm breakfast when you walk into work. A friend that remembers you talking about craving a certain breakfast item and bringing it in for you is priceless. Thank you Ben for making my day

Monday, March 10, 2014

Day 69: 3/10/2014

For Mondays where you are able to find an hour to squirrel yourself away in a quiet room to study. I never thought I would be thankful to be able to study for an hour. My, how times have changed and now I am actually excited for my journey towards being a pilot

Sunday, March 9, 2014

Day 68: 3/9/2014

For another fantastic day of flying and learning personal limits and experiencing sheer joy. Crosswinds are not what a pilot craves when they plan a day of flying. However, for me, a day of intense crosswinds that tests the limits of the plane is what makes me feel alive. Not to mention it is amazing when you ace Mother Nature. Achievement unlocked!

Saturday, March 8, 2014

Day 67: 3/8/2014

For the chance to enjoy the multitude of amazing and beautiful vehicles, all gathered in one location. The chance to be able to sit in the cars and for a brief moment, enjoy the smile spread across my face that only a car could make 

Friday, March 7, 2014

Day 66: 3/7/2014

For modern applications that allow for you to stay up to date on the latest breaking news. It's not something to be grateful about really as this will forever be the day I remember as the day that lives can be changed in an instant

Thursday, March 6, 2014

Day 65: 3/6/2014

For life moments as such to remind myself to laugh. This pamphlet made me laugh non-stop for a full 2 minutes. I really didn't know I was capable of being so easily amused

Wednesday, March 5, 2014

Day 64: 3/5/2014

For the ability to perform all tests thrown at me at 110% of my being. Getting a two thumbs up after a grueling day of mental tests is worth knowing that I am one more step closer to my dream of being an aviator 

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

Day 63: 3/4/2014

For apt quotes the eve before a battery of tests that will leave me mentally exhausted. It reminds me that life is always an accumulation of small moments that make it a hell of a fun ride

Monday, March 3, 2014

Day 62: 3/3/2014

For headphones that allow me to escape from the distracting noises and chatter around me when I am trying to get an insurmountable amount of work done

Sunday, March 2, 2014

Day 61: 3/2/2014

For these casts that allowed me to be as mobile as I could bear for 8 long weeks (last summer). Walking with a cast (or rather hopping) made my coordination a whole lot better and I have them to thank for it. I finally threw them out with the trash after I took some photos to remind me of where I was and where I am now

Saturday, March 1, 2014

Day 60: 3/1/2014

For coffee shared with a friend, brings about stories otherwise untold. Being able to cross the generations and become friends that are close enough to share stories about our pasts. There's just something magical about watching two lives intersect where they normally wouldn't
