How to Be Ridiculously Happy


When I ran home at lunch today to walk my sweet little dog, I snapped this picture on the way back to work.

What a gorgeous day, right? It was in the 50s, and I was wearing a dress with a blazer and boots. No coat, no gloves, no tights.

I walked back to work and got a text from my friend Shannon. “Do you want to go ice-skating tonight?

Yes, I was the only person on that rink with bare legs.


We saw a proposal!

Or, you know.


*Edited to fix spelling from being ridiculously tired.*

(Ashley pretty much changed my life with this discovery tonight.)
