happy things from today.

the past few days have been kind of rough.  

after planning a visit with one of my friends for months, she finally came down this last weekend and...spent most of her time in bed with symptoms from an ulcer.  Ethan's car got towed.  i had another ovarian cyst episode.  and that's only a small fraction of what happened over the weekend.

but despite all that, i've had peace and joy and felt love surround my being.  and today?  i got quite a few little blessings.


two pairs of adorable, summery wedges.

a pretty, bright purple pedicure.

being able to finish enrolling in the two paralegal courses i'm taking this semester.

having my friend, yesenia, (also a co-worker) saying she wants to spend time together, even after she leaves our job. (tomorrow's her last day.)  the past couple months, i have grown to consider her such a good friend and i feel blessed that she wants to continue our friendship in the future.

spending some quiet time on Pinterest, looking at pictures and seeing beauty and feeling inspired.

feeling God's quite, rejuvenating peace.

and after i finish posting this, i'm going to bed early.  and it's going to be amazing:)


i hope you all are having a lovely Wednesday night, dear friends.  two more days until the weekend! :)





  1. Hey Charla! I haven't been able to comment forever and didn't see you on Facebook anymore. I just wanted to let you know I think about you a lot and hope you're doing well. <3

  2. yay for the little things when life's craziness takes over c: it's amazing how during the times that we consider 'defeat' God is still working in the same exact beautiful way.

  3. Kudos to you for staying so positive through it all! Things will get better, they always do with the coming of spring then summer! Hope you are feeling well.
