Photo Diary: Good Things

When I decided to post every day in May, I carefully planned out a schedule which alternated between beauty, lifestyle, and shoutouts. Today was supposed to be a beauty day, but as the atrocity in Manchester has shown, things don't always go to plan. It didn't feel right to skip past it, pretend it never happened. If it has taught me anything, it is to be more grateful than ever, to look to the good, and encourage others to do the same. Here are some things that have made me smile in the past week or so.

Top to bottom:

--- Important life advice from this jam jar. It's all we can hope to do in dark times.
---  Monkey enjoying the sunshine. It makes me so happy that she didn't have a home, and now rules ours!
--- This beautiful bar won so many brownie points: chewy base, crispy top, loads of chocolate chips, and bought from an independent baker!
--- Dad found a toad in the garden and I nearly wet myself with sheer joy. I called him Perry. He now lives under the shed.

As we heal, it's important to celebrate the small things, to be defiantly happy in the face of fear. If you are struggling please see this advice page, and if you would like to donate to the families you can do so here
