Things that make me happy

A totally random post of a few things that have made this day of "needing to get my screams out*", into a day of "I am blessed, I am happy, I am normal, I am loved".

All you awesome people and your photo love lately. Thank you for your encouragement, sweet words and props. I do really, really appreciate them- truly. Thank you.

These two little babes and the girl's baby-mama who I am glad to call my best friend.

real food that is full of flavor, I was making this- my go to summer pasta right now (I don't bake it off and actually like it cold better than warm, mmm).

And a funky new hair cut complete with new hair clips and product. A stylist who can take a random set of instructions and turn it into a sweet new look, or in her words, "Shut the front door, this is cute".
Oh, and the (film) photobooth** that is located in the bar behind the salon, purdy much rocks my socks. (my scanner took a poop so even though I have a bunch of stuff to scan including these strips, they will have to wait until we get a replacement scanner or I can find someone who is willing to share theirs).

* "Getting your screams out" is a term I coined when I was little. It is something I made up when I felt like I needed nothing more then to let out all that pent up energy, aggression, or frustration with a good old primal scream or five. Totally fine for a 6 year old, not so socially acceptable in public by a grown woman.

** I got to meet the infamous a-go-gos yesterday. I have instax proof, even though we had planned to get photoboothic proof. It was a tad to early in the day for the bar to be open, thus they will just have to come back thru so we can make it happen. We did jump though and do a few selfies (Jek will have to share when she returns to the internets, my camera was out of batteries). BTW, they are the sweetest two people- easy to talk with and visit just like we had known each other for a long time. I was so happy to get to be part of there vacation plans :)
