Day 181: 6/30/2014

For being fortunate enough to afford to buy whatever I need for groceries (and then some). Sometimes I take for granted that I am able to just throw anything I want in the cart and not think twice about how it would affect the budget for the month. I need to remind myself of this fact so I don't take it all for granted

Day 180: 6/29/2014

For a sunny and beautiful Sunday that gives me the chance to really break in my new bike. Nothing like finding out you can cycle for 12 miles and actually want to keep going forever

Saturday, June 28, 2014

Day 179: 6/28/2014

For an amazing birthday gift (way ahead of time) that makes you feel free. I still remember my first bike, and now as an adult, that feeling is still the same - total excitement!

Day 178: 6/27/2014

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Day 177: 6/26/2014

For a frozen lunch that actually looks (and tastes) like an actual home cooked meal. Small victories are the little things that makes your day, and it is sometimes as simple as a midday meal

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Day 176: 6/25/2014

Day 174: 6/23/2014

Sunday, June 22, 2014

Day 173: 6/22/2014

For celebrations with friends for a special person's birthday. When people come together and have an amazing time with each other all in the name of celebrating another person, it's the best feeling there is

Saturday, June 21, 2014

Day 172: 6/21/2014

For reminders of past vacations that let you experience one of your many "firsts". I can still remember my first sea plane flights, hands at the controls and the feeling of lift off the lake. It took my heart and made me soar 

Friday, June 20, 2014

Day 171: 6/20/2014

Day 170: 6/19/2014

For stormy, rainy days, so you are able to sit back, grab a book and listen to the rain as you read. Who said a rainy day isn't enjoyable?

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Day 169: 6/18/2014

For the gentleness of soft paws and the knowledge that it belongs to the sweetest cat you know. Animals can just make you day just by being in it and that's extremely comforting to me

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Day 168: 6/17/2014

For a brief moment of sunshine amidst the barrage of thunder and rainstorms. Laying on my back and not caring if the wet grass is on my skin. Watching the planes fly above me onto their different adventures

Monday, June 16, 2014

Day 167: 6/16/2014

For a quiet house and a perfect time to indulge in some quality football matches. A house to oneself can be extremely calming and the solitude is oddly soothing

Sunday, June 15, 2014

Day 166: 6/15/2014

For sunny breaks during bouts of thunderstorms and torrential rain so that I may sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. It's always great to be able to share these moments with Mochi as well and watch her enjoy her surrroundings

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Day 165: 6/14/2014

For loyalty to a team that spans decades. I love that I stay true to the Azzuris after all these years and that loyalty is what fuels me with the butterflies in the pit of my stomach every time I watch them play. It makes me feel alive!

Friday, June 13, 2014

Day 164: 6/13/2014

For the ability and freedom to watch the World Cup matches at work while working. What's  even better is the fact that I have a fellow co-worker to be a total fanatic when watching these matches unfold before me. It makes my day 100% better when I get to partake in my passion on a daily basis

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Day 163: 6/12/2014

For burns that heal up just beautifully. I try not to post gore, but I am really thankful my 2nd-degree burns didn't progress further or had gotten infected. I am just happy everything is right on track and doing what it needs to do

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Day 162: 6/11/2014

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Day 161: 6/10/2014

For hearty bowls of noodles that warms not only your belly but your soul. Something as simple as a spicy broth can cure all ails, even on a 60 degree day in June

Monday, June 9, 2014

Day 160: 6/9/2014

For Monday evenings spent relaxing sipping coffee as I watch the world fly by outside. It's amazing how quiet the world can be when you just sit back, take a sip of freshly brewed coffee and just let your mind empty

Sunday, June 8, 2014

Day 159: 6/8/2014

For views like these while on your first solo cross-country adventure. Actually just for the views alone am I already grateful. Couple an amazing experience with perfect landings and great navigation just made this journey perfect for me. No one can take this experience away from me, no one at all

Saturday, June 7, 2014

Day 158: 6/7/2014

For getting the approval to take off on your first ever solo cross-country flight (that will take about 3 hours). Makes me feel fantastic knowing that I have everything in check and the trust from my instructor to take off on my adventure tomorrow

Friday, June 6, 2014

Day 157: 6/6/2014

For living close to the airport so you may visit on a whim. There is nothing better than heading off to the airport to watch a few planes take-off and land on a nice and warm summer evening

Thursday, June 5, 2014

Day 156: 6/5/2014

For friends that will pick you up on their bikes to take you to a once monthly motorcycle event. Motorcycles, friends and pizza - a fantastic combination for a week night

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

Day 155: 6/4/2014

For the reminder that I have the patience and persistence of a tree stump. This stack of ID cards is a reminder of all the employees that have left in the last 3 years. Call it what you want but I am apparently able to withstand a lot that gets thrown at my general direction

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

Day 154: 6/3/2014

For loaves of bread by the garbage bags just sitting at work for the taking. Sometimes the types and amounts of free food in the break room at work amazes me. I am thankful for being able to feed myself on the cheap while being paid to work

Monday, June 2, 2014

Day 153: 6/2/2014

For coming home to sights as such after a long day at work. To watch these two babies (the 3rd is off somewhere else) cuddle up to take a nap is one of the most peaceful things in the world

Sunday, June 1, 2014

Day 152: 6/1/2014

For rainy Sundays, to give me an excellent excuse to complete a few
Lego sets. As much as I love being outdoors all the time, I do enjoy my time indoors working on Lego projects. Brings me back to my childhood and warms my heart on this cold rainy day
