April 30, 2012: Words of Wisdom

I have always struggled with the "everything happens for a reason" philosophy. Because really, does it? 
I have uttered those words on occasion, like when I can't find a parking spot and when I find one it just happens to be in front of my favorite coffee shop. See, I was meant to have a latte! "Everything happens for a reason!" 
But normally, I feel like that's just a way to make a less-than-awesome situation make sense. 
Today a fellow blogger spoke some words that rang true.

"Everything happens, it just does." 

So today I am thankful for words of wisdom.

April 18, 2012: April

Today I am thankful for April.

It's practically San Francisco's Summer. Every year around this time, I start spending a lot of time in our backyard weeding, planting, and sun-soaking. And this year is no different.
Every evening after work I head downstairs to revel in the lengthening days and the sunshine, and I nourish my green thumb. It's not all that green yet, but I'm working on it, one little plant at a time.

April 9, 2012: New Additions

I spent the weekend living it up in my old stomping grounds: Chico! Love that little town!
Okay, so maybe I wasn't exactly "living it up" Chico style, but I sure did enjoy myself. 
I got some much needed cuddle time in with my first Nephew and Godson Trenton. He is the cutest!
Easily the best looking member of the Rose family so far.  

Today I am thankful for new additions to the family. 

Meeting for the first time! Auntie Em gets to feed him first!
I can't wait to see him again and cuddle that snuggly little body of his!

Looking kind of cozy with Uncle Nick

Babies are such a nice way to start people...

April 2, 2012: Clean Bathrooms

Today I'm thankful for clean bathrooms.

Some people might judge a restaurant by it's food, it's decor, etc. 
I judge a restaurant by its bathroom. 
Dirty bathrooms are gross. 
I feel like a bathroom that is well-tended and clean and smells nice speaks volumes about what the kitchen must look like. This might be totally untrue as it isn't based on any first-hand knowledge, but it makes sense to me. 
And dirty bathrooms are gross.
