I was looking for a new link up to join, and saw that a lot of my close blogger friends were joining in this link-up, so you know I'm jumping on the train too.

HIGH FIVE FOR FRIDAY. Where we list 5 things that made us happy throughout the week...and let me tell you, this week was so full of so much hate in this world, I am ecstatic to look back at 5 blessings (even the insignificant ones) that made my week so fantastic.

1. Sushi. Caleb and I had to do some grocery shopping for him the other night, and I don't think I've ever loved him more than when he agreed to eat sushi for dinner.

2. This man at my usual park. No, I'm not a total creep... it was a beautiful day, I needed out of the office, so I went to my usual park and ate my lunch.
This old man decided to sit on the park bench just relaxing. It made me wonder, "where is his wife?" "is he alone?" and I so badly wanted to just go over and talk to him about life. Don't ask me why, but something about older people makes me want to know their life stories. Life is so precious.

3. My church photography. Let me tell you, this has been a challenge. My photography style is very much "lifestyle", you know? Shooting families, couples, weddings, etc...
Back story -- Josh (my bridesmaid Marie's husband), is the Creative Communications guy at our church...and he has asked me to do the photography for the church. I can't say how thankful I am for his patience, this is a new style for me and its making me a bit discouraged, but knowing that it will further God's kingdom makes me incredibly happy and I trust that I'll get the hang of this quickly. This is a shot from my computer screen as I was editing last night.

4. My "Bride" tumbler! Caleb and I went running again last night (I'm officially 25.21 miles into my 40 mile challenge for April!), and I'm freaking sore. However, I'm thankful for this makes me realize my body is changing! Hot wedding dress bod here I commeee!

5. This guy. Honestly... not to make you totally throw up in your mouth...but the other day we were watching South Park together, South Park! & he grabbed my face, looked me in the eyes and said I am the one thing he can never stop thinking about.

I mean, what a MAN!

Enjoy your weekend, folks.
