Five Reasons To Be Happy This Friday

I'm reviving my blog! Today is as good a day as any to do it, and because it's Friday, I'll also post my latest five reasons:

1. My new necklace!
It think this is the cutest thing ever! A little camera with a clock! I LOVE it! 

2. My family - they always make me happy (not only on Fridays)

I was in Germany in July and it was great to spend time with my family and friends! My nieces from Ireland were there because they are on summer break right now. I got to spend time with my little sister who is now engaged!! So we're planning her wedding (and I will be back in Germany next year)! My cousin, who's also my wedding photographer, was back from Canada and I enjoyed spending time with her! My grandma, who turned 85 during my visit, was so happy to have me there. And, of course, my parents were really excited! My mom and and cried when saying hello and goodbye - we're just emotional :) The eight days went by too fast, but I enjoyed every moment. It also made me realize that even though I miss my family, it doesn't seem like they are that far away! I know I can always reach them when I need them and they are always there for me! It is a great feeling. THANK YOU to my family.

3. My promotion. This is a great opportunity, and I have learned so much in the last year! I am now the associate director of communications, and I enjoy my job and the new position a lot. I have a great team, and it's fun to work with them. Plus, I get to travel more, which I'm pretty excited about.

4. That it is Friday! Yes, I love my job, but I also enjoy my time off! I'm looking forward to reading my book. If the weather is nice, I might go to the pool or beach and enjoy the sun, work on my tan. Tomorrow, after my workout, I'm meeting a friend to get a pedicure. I might even go shopping... 

5. And last but not least, my friends make me happy - the old ones and the new ones! I don't know what I would do without my friends. I was so excited to see so many of my friends while I was in Germany, and I was really touched that so many took time out of their busy schedule to spend time with me. Some even traveled for hours and hours! 

I also made some new friends here in Jax. I met a few Germans who moved here, and some of my coworkers have become friends. 

This is it for today! I will try to not make you wait that long for my next blog post. Maybe I will even find some time to blog about my Germany trip... but no promises!

What is making you happy today?
