in the midst of an emotionally/spiritually draining and painfully arduous week, i have been pathetically attempting to focus my thoughts on simple joys that make me happy. it actually does help to see the hope, beauty, and promises in everyday!
so, these are a few of life's pleasures that will never fail to put a smile on my face - a brianna'esque version of "favorite things", but without the biting dogs and stinging bees.
