"Sorrow comes in great waves...but rolls over us,
and though it may almost smother us, it leaves us.
And we know that if it is strong, we are stronger,
inasmuch as it passes and we remain."
- Henry James
These are the things and people that brightened up the past couple of weeks before last Friday's good news.
|Waffles with vanilla ice cream and salted caramel sauce from Yardstick Coffee|
|Meetings are more productive with my favorite Starbucks Mint Blend Full Leaf Brewed Tea and notebook featuring Tiara's art.|
|Red, white, and blue, stripes over you|
Around two weeks ago my officemates and I had a mid-year Kris Kringle just because and I got this pair from Far. These are my current favorite heels.
|My friend Mike's pasalubong to me from Hong Kong: an ultra-girly and glittery iPhone case and cute socks|
|My pretty officemates and I|
|My oldest friend Niel. We've been friends since we were four!|
|Sleepover at Marsha's house with Mich last weekend|
|Steady Sunday with my cousins|
|Spontaneous kansi-and-cupcake date with my dearest Anne, Alex, and Kira|
Not included in the photos are my carpool-mates, but they also deserve to be mentioned. Thanks for bearing with me on my sad state. :)
So there. I guess my simple takeaway from this post is that sad days are inevitable, but there are always ways to turn them around. With friends, preferably.
