Happy list.

Yesterday was kind of a crummy day. I was so tired, crabby, and emotional.
I went to bed at a decent time last night, and decided that today would be better.
Guess what? It is.

Just a few things making me happy today:

+ this photo that Ethan took on Saturday. We were in Midway, UT, sitting in the car during a thunderstorm, waiting for Brandon to finish his race. He was terribly bored. He had just got new green converse high tops, and I let him play with my phone. He snapped this photo, which I found later that night back in the hotel room. It made me so happy, and every time I see it, I feel happy. I think I will have it framed and hang it somewhere in our home. I call it 'Green on Green'.

+ some really awesome posts on my google reader this morning. Like this one, a precious tribute by my friend Lindsay to her beautiful mother. And this one, a fascinating post from Kelly about a quirky thing she discovered while in Denver. I can't wait to visit that city and find those pianos so that I can sit and play Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata.'

+ seriously awesome new music out this month. Like this and this and this. Right now I am listening to this, which makes me so very happy, and which you should totally listen to, because Ryan Tanner is amazing.

+ only 6 days until the Sarah Sample show on a houseboat. This night will be so special, and you don't want to miss it. I saw Sarah along with all The Lower Lighters at a special benefit concert while in Utah, and she is as charming as they come. So I hope you will join us. Listen to Sarah's album and get your tickets!

Friends, what's making you happy today?
