Five Things That Made Me Smile

Inspired by Amy's challenge to scrap something about the everyday, last Sunday I grabbed my camera and took photos of five things that made me smile that day. I had every intention of creating a scrapbook page with those photos, but the week is nearly gone and I haven't done so. However, today Amy issued a new challenge to "grab your camera and take five photos ... of things that you know won't be around in another five years time." Yeah me - I'm ready this time - I'll simply share my photos from last Sunday here on my blog. You see, I believe this blog is just like one of my scrapbooks, a place to record the events and memories of our lives (especially the everyday things). So, without further ado, here are five things that made me smile on Sunday, May 22.

1. A new light pink shirt - Mama always said this was my best color, although I'm not sure this quick photo does it justice.

2. Yellow roses - the fact that Robbie still brings/sends me flowers every week going on ten years still makes me smile! (See the story behind this tradition here.)

3. Good reading/browsing material - perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

4. An Un-Birthday Gift from my secret sister at church - since we choose secret sisters for five months at a time, we are encourage to give our sister an un-birthday gift if her birthday falls outside of that five months. Isn't this a wonderful summer time gift?


5. Supper lovingly prepared and served by the Love of my Life!

There now, I've recorded five little bits of my life right NOW! What's happening in your life this week that you need to record?

Wonderful post! I've been feeling kinda' glum today (hormones), but I'm trying hard to keep busy with what I need to be doing! Right now I'm working on my things in bloom/things growing pictures and that certainly making me smile!

Now that's a fortuitous challenge by Amy - and great happy, smiley, cheering photos. Off to read about the flowers now ...

Great photos. I love taking these random photos of every day life. Lucky you - getting the pretty flowers. That would put a smile on my face too! :)

Ginger said...

Happy photos indeed Melissa! It's wonderful to see that even small things like reading our favorite magazines and having a nice dinner made for us can bring such happiness! I am thankful and happy that Marvin enjoys cooking as much as he does, and it looks like your hubby enjoys it too.

These are all excellent Melissa! You have very similar colouring to one of my sisters and she always looks great in pastel colours - your Mama is right!
I agree with you about using the blog as one great big scrap page - that's my view too :-)

I'm catching up on the 5 things posts...wow! Those roses! I've always loved yellow with a tinge of pink! That's the color of the first roses my honey ever brought me. Looks like you have a lovely, thoughtful honey too!

Melissa, I love your take on the challenge and what wonderful things in your life, you have great cause to smile. And although the color doesn't show well I can imagine the exact shade with your coloring that your Mama knows looks awesome on you :)
