10 things making me smile

by Kaylah Stroup

▴ This sleepy plant that goes to bed every evening and wakes up refreshed in the mornings.

Rattlesnake Plant

Fun socks!

▴ Combining bike rides + geocaching!
(Also, my pretty bike + hanging out with my brother!)

▴ Pressing plants.

▴ Cats in bags!
(My babies are almost always hanging out in or on a paper bag but I still always point it out to Jeff.)

 ▴ Matching my lipstick to my earrings!
(And just wearing fun earrings, in general!)

▴ Doing even the tiniest bit of gardening outside.

▴ This guy + those flowers he showed up at my bridal shower with.

▴ Getting a perfume named ‘Arizona’ in this month’s Glossybox.
(We’re getting married in Arizona, in case you missed that! Little coincidences like this are the best.)

▴ This wild little beast.

Other good things on my mind:
▴ weather warm enough for cook outs and sitting by the fire ▴ the smell of camp fire ▴ seeing Klaus play in puddles ▴ talks of building a zipline at my parent’s house before our wedding reception ▴ bike rides – forever + always ▴  rainy mornings that turn into sunshine filled afternoons ▴  getting a cat cafe IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD! ▴ booking plane tickets for the wedding! ▴ building a fun collection of earrings ▴ homemade chili (even if it means having to turn on the air conditioning to eat it) ▴ holding my new squishy baby niece ▴ finding my first four leaf clover!

What’s making you smile today?

PS. Can’t recommend this gratitude journal enough!

Do you know the band A R I Z O N A? Their song “Oceans Away” is literally the most calming thing I’ve ever heard!

When I was a teenager and young adult I loved to find and press wildflowers, and something you might try that I really liked was just using that clear shipping/packing tape that comes in those little red dispensers, it almost preserves the flower so the color stays even years after. Just a quick little trick I thought I’d share. 🙂
