Makes Me Smile

Here are six things that are making me smile this Monday:

Smile #1: We recently had a friend stay with us a few nights while she was in the process of moving. As a way of saying thanks, she left us this cute salt and pepper shaker set.

Smile #2: When I arrived at my mother's house Thursday, I found these little gifts waiting on the nightstand (minus the glasses and keys). The Pike Place cook book is perfect since we just got back from Seattle.

Smile #3: Every time I head up to the Bay Area, I make it a point to visit my favorite sushi restaurant, Shogun. In all honesty, the only sushi that I've had that tops their quality was in Tokyo, at the Tsukiji Fish Market.

Smile #4: Seeing this dog makes me smile like no other. Roz is 15 and the most lovable dog there is.

Smile #5: This is my great grandmother. She's 98 and wonderful, and puts the biggest smile on my face. Did I mention that she's 98?!

Smile #6: This Monday, I'm smiling because I was able to witness my friend from high school marry the man of her dreams in the most beautiful ceremony I have ever seen. Congratulations!

What's making you smile this Monday?

  • Great photos! I actually haven’t tried Shogun before and I live in the bay area, but now I must since I absolutely LOVE Tokyo’s fish market! The salt and pepper set is so adorable! Your blog is lovely =)

    • thanks, Suzie! you’ll have to check out Shogun some time you’re in the north bay. I was so surprised that Santa Rosa had such wonderful sushi.

  • Such wonderful reasons to smile! Friends, family, weddings, good sushi, what more could a girl wish for? =)
