{this moment} - and the weekly Smile-Up!

. . . . . . . . . . 
"There are no ordinary moments." ~Way of the Peaceful Warrior

{this moment} - a Friday ritual. A photo (few) capturing moments from the week. Simple, special, extraordinary moments. Moments I want to pause, savor and remember. 

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Still soooo busy! But here are my moments from the past two weeks! :) 

[Thanks to my friend Tam for the awesome photos above!]

Weekly "Smile Up":

I was doing these "weekly smile-ups" a couple years ago and they were a lot of fun to do and I'd like to start them up again. I figure doing them along with the weekly "this moment" posts is fitting and quite perfect--since "this moment" is all about appreciating your life and everything around you and that's exactly what the "weekly smile-up" posts are about too! Sooooo, getting back into this lovely routine! :)

Celebrated Cory's birthday last weekend at the Kaslo Skatepark with amazing friends! 
Bonfires on the lake!! 
Getting lots of work done so I can feel better heading into market season!  
Getting back in touch with both my Grandmas in Europe. It's been much too long! 
Wishing my little brother a happy birthday (he shares the same birthday as Cory, it's really sweet).  
Tea dates with my bestie!
Sitting on the kitchen counter talking and hanging out with my hubby (random beautiful moment). 
Finally getting a bookshelf for my work room!  
Watching the sun go down from our big bright windows in our sunroom. 
Writing and Drawing up the good copy of the first chapter of my book!!

Loving: My job • Drawing • Creating • Working more on the Happiness Guide and Bootcamp Zines • Our home • My workroom that looks like a child's room (harhar) •  Smiling • Gigling • Sunshine • Trees • New Earrings and Rings for ReLove store • Kootenay Love shirts • Dancing in your undies • Remember the bliss I felt a couple years ago! • Writing and Drawing again •

Interests for the week:
Reading "Neverwhere" by Neil Gaiman! Such an amazing whimsical book!  
Watched Iron Man 3 in the theatre--been so long since I've been to the movie theatre!! 
✯  Watching Anime shows again! Woot! Currently: D.Gray Man, Say I love You. 
✯  Watching Game of Thrones!! On the 3rd season, but only on episode 3--so no spoiling it for me!! ;) 
Music Playlist: Florence and the Machine, Breaking Benjamin, Hurt, Red, Within Temptation, MachineHead, Flyleaf. 
Food Faves: Quinoa Cookies Smoothies Peanut Butter Kale New Tofu Nugget recipe  

Lessons of the week: 
Look at yourself when you were your happiest and remember how good you felt; then strive for it again!! It's okay not to be okay all the time! Be yourself and never be ashamed of any part of you! Embrace who you are!! Put yourself in a good mood the moment you wake up! It's good to spend time on yourself, just for yourself--and it's not selfish so don't feel guilty for it!   People will always try to take credit for things you do--do them anyway and don't bother with silly people. PMA PMA PMA!!  

Hope you're all having a beautiful wonderful blissful week! Tell me about your lovely weeks! Tell me about your "Weekly Smile Up" and "This Moment"! Pretty please? :)
