    Great photos, like a “grateful” list in pictures instead of words. Good idea 🙂

    All good things! Love it. I was always jealous of my blonde friends using lemon juice in their hair! It seemed so fun and cool.

    This was such a wonderful post. I do this mentally in my head every day on my way to work. It helps me feel not so depressed about having to spend the day in an office. Makes me think I should start doing picture versions.

    Also I used to ask my friends all the time, “what’s the best thing about today/your life/this week/etc” until they all started getting annoyed at me. I’m kinda mental sometimes…

    Love the lemon in hair…used to do that all the time…maybe will try it again this summer!

    The Dove Bar wrapper makes me happy {I’m a total chocoholic}…there would probably be like 3-4 of them in my picture though : )
