Looking Back

At the end of a very trying day yesterday at work, I was closing all of my open windows on my computer, getting ready to shut down to head home, and I stopped for a second.

I have a few pictures as the background on my computer at work that cycle through. This one was the one that was up when everything was closed, before I shut down:


I stopped for a minute and just looked at it, smiling, remembering that day, and those crazy intense happy feelings.

And somehow the stupidity and stresses of the day were a little less.

It's crazy to think that 2 years ago this weekend (Memorial Day weekend), this happened. The man I'd been looking for and thinking about all my life asked me to marry him. 
Sometimes you just need to take a second to smell the roses....or stare at a picture to realize the important stuff in life and let the other stuff go.

  4. Amen and amen! It's so easy to get caught up in the day to day stressers. But life is short and we need to take more time to enjoy the moments...and good times. ;)
