“Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.”

Today was a difficult day.
Not for myself but for someone close to me.
Therefore, in order to restore my good mood, I have decided to pay tribute to Miss Gala Darling (my inspiration for starting a blog), by writing a "TILT" blog or "Things I love Tuesday".

Things I Loved this Tuesday, July 13th include:

  • Wearing my big girl shoes all day with relatively no pain. Yeah for me!
  • Being complimented on my ensemble numerous times in one day. (I was told that I looked "put together".)
  • Afternoon ice cream breaks.
  • Delightful and loving text messages from my best friend while she is en route to Nova Scotia.
  • Feeling more confident about my dating life. (One down, hundreds to go!)
  • Finding the perfect (Walt Disney) quote for a card.
  • People that are SO EXCITED about figuring out that they know my one of parents from high school.
  • Making a covert trip to the garbage chute in order to dispose of something that I know does not belong in the garbage chute (cue the "Mission Impossible" theme music).
  • Having a cute boy hold the door for me as I enter my apartment.
  • My apartment...just in general.
  • Turning on my digital frame and seeing my loved ones (past and present) smile up at me.
  • The woman at the grocery store who fawned over my reusable bag. She LOVED it!
  • Watching my bunny eat bananas. You will never see an animal enjoy something as much as he enjoys bananas.
  • This line from "National Treasure" "Do you know what the preservation room is for?" "Delicious jams and jellies?"
  • Waking up to this text message from my friend Tyler "Pretty sure Michael Eisner is waiting for the same plane as me." Uh, what? AMAZING!
  • My dear Norweigan friend who translated the words to "O Canada" into Norweigan and posted it on my Facebook wall. He also once told me that I was "a cupcake with pink icing and sprinkles."
