Yay! Friday!

Oh, thank goodness this week is over.  It was a long one.  Amiright?  But it's pretty much over and I feel like shouting from the rooftops, "It's almost over! Happy Friday!!"*  And I thought I'd share with you a few of the things that made me happy this week. 

I should have known then it was going to be a long week, but I still had high hopes! 

Alivia's blog.  When I open her blog, I get the same feelings as when I walk into the homes/rooms/cars of my best friends: warm, welcoming, happy, and the "oh thankgoodness you get it/go through it/love it, too" sigh of relief.  Thankyouverymuch internet - although, I think we'd make great friends in real life, too. 

Speaking of "in real life" - Nicole rocks.  I get to see her soon.  I may or may not be counting down the hours. 

Bee is posting a new design in her etsy shop, and I just love it.  I pretty much love everything Bee does.  In art & in life.
The Stratejoy blog.  If you're looking for honest writing about the important topics in the quarterlife period, you should definitely check it out. (Nikki's posts always resonate with me.)  

Kind of along the same theme, this quote pretty much made my week (which I shared earlier, but I'm sharing again):
“And at the end of the day (my life), I will not be devoid, even if my results are nominal. I will have put energy out there. I will have tried to instill the same values in possible children to continue the fight. People won’t read my name on a tombstone and laugh and point and shout out FOOL’S ERRAND because goddammit I am enjoying myself through the hard work and the failures and the tough nature of the WAY THINGS ARE and at the very least I can count myself as someone who stood on his own feet and cared about people and believed in things and wasn’t some lemming stooge who bought the party line on How Things Work.”
Also, there's a puppy in my house, and puppy kisses are, hands down, the best thing ever.

Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!

*If your week isn't a M-F type of week, then I'll shout "You're gonna make it! Your Friday will arrive!" too. =)
