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

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

{this moment} - a Friday ritual. A photo (or few) capturing moments from the week. Simple, special, extraordinary moments. Moments I want to pause, savor and remember.
Served up with the weekly {Smile-Up} - gratitude practices to love and appreciate your life. 

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

{this moment}

[reunited with two of our best friends after almost 3 years! Missed them!]

{Smile Up}:

Two of our best friends visiting us for the week! 
Midnight swims--and our "macho" friend being the slowest to get into the water (ha!) 
Beach fun! 
Amazing girl talks! 
Barbecues with friends! 
Playing sociables; all the very silly things that happen in that game!
Laughing until your stomach hurts!  
Silly youtube videos
Wednesday market with my Dana :) 
Jumping into the lake in my underwear after sweating at the market--couldn't make it home to the beach house ;)   
Girl time!   
Planning a trip to the tattoo convention in Calgary to get tattooed by Dana! Super excited! 
Campfires and exploring with friends
Kitty belly rubs! And how much our cats love us (now if only they'd stop being sketchy around strangers ;p) 
Feeling like you're taking a step back in time--craziness! 
When friends bring you cookies when you're working :)  
Hugs! Always Hugs! ^_^

Loving: Learning • Reminiscing • Playing • Creating • Girl talks •  Beach Days • Cooling off in the Lake • Relaxing • Campfires • Sleeping in (which I rarely do) • My job • Exploring  • Tea Dates •

Lessons of the week: 
Sticking up for yourself is always best, even when people try to turn it around back at you. Stick up for yourself anyway! Talk! So you can feel better and reach some resolve Listen to your heart--not the excuses you make up in your head. Choose wisely the friends you want to tell your deepest secrets--and be grateful for the amazing friends in your life that you can trust. I say this one again: sometimes people are meant to leave your life, move on and accept that you're on different paths. Be grateful for the good times and release the rest Accept yourself as you are and remember that you Are a Good Person.

Hope you're all having a beautiful wonderful blissful week! 
What are you grateful for this week? :)
