What's Making Me Happy - 10/21

It's been a minute (or months) since I've taken the time to write this regular post. Excited to get back in the swing and share some happy things with the world.

First of all, I think writing this post about how I've been and how I am now was a really great part of the week. It meant sharing some things that I've typically not, but putting that honesty and authentic "stuff" out there was a better feeling than I anticipated. Then, hearing from amazing family and friends with words of support just reinforced that I'm fortunate to be where I'm at.

I've read some really awesome books this year, but this one has been one of the best. It was particularly well-timed as far as when I got it from the library. I read it an evening, and it was just magnificent. The next day, I even went out and bought a copy, so I could have it to mark down all the best passages (and/or the whole book). And then, a group of women I regularly meet with at work decided to read it together. I'm excited to delve into again and to discuss it with some really great people.

And with October having no Royals baseball, I've been feeling especially nostalgic. I finally had the chance to check out the film about the World Series this week. Last night, as I watched, I was a happy teary, ugly crying mess of emotions. Sometimes I can't even believe the last two years happened. I even watch the games and worry they might turn out differently. But they don't, and we were really, really there. I'm bummed we don't have this same fun in 2016, but the memories and joy from the last two postseasons are guaranteed to keep me happy for awhile.
