What Inspires Me

Note: I wrote this post a few weeks ago for Laura over at Along for the Ride.  She is featuring posts from bloggers about what inspires them during these dreary winter months (although this past weekend was bea-utiful!).  I figured it was time for me to share with you what I wrote and she featured.  Thanks, Laura!

     Hi, everybody!  I totally echo Laura about the dreary-ness of this time of year.  I always find myself working towards Spring Break and the sunshine it promises.  :]  Here are a few of the things that keep me going towards that goal:

Sitting down for a chat with a good friend and a yummy Peppermint Mocha at Starbucks.  Delicious!

 Listening to music by my favorite band (The Beatles!), like Magical Mystery Tour (click for YouTube video).

Taken by my lovely friend Sarah.
Belonging to an awesome small group.  Fellowship (and food!) with other like-minded women is such a huge encouragement.  

And last but not least, remembering that flip flop season is only a few months away!  :]

     Well, those are just a few of the things that inspire me during these gloomy winter months.  Feel free to come visit my blog over at graduate "extraordinaire"!  Thanks for letting me share, Laura!  :]


  1. And with flip flops comes my summer jeans and a "start of the season" pedicure! (then I save money and do it by myself for the rest of the summer!)

  2. That's a fun tradition! I might try that myself. :]
