{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.

Ordering my Cintiq!! (can't wait for it to arrive!!)   
Getting excited over geeky things ;)
Kitty cuddles (can never have too much)
Drawing a photo a day! ^_^ 
 Hugging Trees! 
 Being a big kid! ^_^

Loving: Lots of Drawing, planning out my book • Simplicity of pencil and paper • Adventures • Summer Markets • Lazy evenings •  Self Work • Happy Diary Entries • Dancing • 

Interests for the week:
Reading: On the last chapter (finally) of "Neverwhere" by Neil Gaiman. I don't want to finish it haha. Time for a new book!
✯  Current Anime shows: Finished "D. Gray Man" (onto the Manga now! ^_^). Started "Guilty Crown" (soooo good!!). Episodes of "Say I Love You" (such an adorable story, love it so much).
✯  True Blood is over, I'm sad. :( New Dexter and Ray Donovan episodes. Stand-up Comedy! 
Music Playlist: Hollywood Undead (looooove them--although not all their songs), Chevelle "SciFi Crimes", Florence and the Machine, Breaking Benjamin, Dub FX, The Sounds. 
Food Faves: Chocolate Vega Smoothies with Spinach Vegan Pizza Cake (Petunia's in Portland) Sundaes (Back to Eden Bakery in Portland) Daiya and cream cheese grilled sandwiches ♥ 

Lessons of the week: 
Think Positive, Think Positive, Think Positive! Happy Diary entries every day are a Must when feeling insecure and/or down! Dancing and prancing are the best medicine . Realizing who in your life makes you feel good or badly about yourself and dealing with such appropriately. Don't over think, and go with the flow! Things happen much smoother this way. You control your mood = you control your life.

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

Tell me about your lovely weeks! Tell me about your 'Smile Up' and 'this moment!' :)
