4th of july vanilla blueberry cupcakes, with lingonberry topping. yuuuuum.
i recently finished "the happiness project" by gretchen rubin, and i'm determined to try out my own year-long project. my year starts in august, and i plan on documenting every step of the way. i don't read too many self help books, but this one was so much more. gretchen's experiences showed me that i need to start focusing on the positives in life and that i'm the only person that can make myself happy. so with all this enlightenment, i'm determined to get out and do more of the things that i enjoy.
to kick my project off early, this past weekend i took in the glorious washington sun at the rose garden in point defiance park. i'm so blessed to live here! when the weather is nice (and even when it's not) the pacific northwest is one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
