amsterdam, happiness

A Perfect Monday Morning

I’m feeling a bit burnt out this week, but trying to keep positive and be thankful for all the amazing little things around me. In fact, on Monday I happened to experience one of the best mornings I’ve had in quite a while. It made me extra happy to be living in Amsterdam and has kept me smiling all week. Here are a few things that made that morning super special:

+my first cappuccino from our new Nespresso machine. Holy heaven!
+ Watching the Today Show on my iPad as I got ready for the day. I almost forgot I was in Europe!
+Husband biking with me to the train station. Even though he does this every morning, Monday it felt even nicer since we hadn’t done it in a while.
+The dry, chilly weather. My hands and face were freezing but I couldn’t help but smile and laugh as I rode to the station. Sometimes I look around and just can’t believe I live here!
+Catching the sunrise as I biked into work. The light was so beautiful it made my heart jump out of my chest (and made me super bummed I didn’t have my camera on me!)
+And this didn’t happen Monday morning, but it’s still making me especially happy. Corey officially accepted an offer for a job in Europe last week! Yippee! Such a relief and so proud of him 🙂

    love the puffy coat. im debating where to get one from. where did u get yours? and does it actually do its job?

  2. Still a lovely sunrise with the water and all. Hope your week gets better than today! Happy for Corey's new job! I just accepted a new job myself and will be moving to Houston with my husband!

  3. When I get a chance to watch the Today Show in the morning I feel so much better! And, so glad you had a wonderful morning to jump start your week.

  4. You look so cute, love the ears on your hat! It's so true, the little things in the life (and in morning haha) make all the difference. Is the Nespresso machine as amazing as everyone says it is? My parents have offered to give my fiancee and I one as a house warming present, and I'm intrigued!

  5. I love the positive thoughts. How are you liking Amsterdam? I am moving to Paris in February and have no idea what I am getting myself into. Any advice???

  6. You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation however I to find this topic to be actually one thing
    which I believe I might never understand. It seems
    too complicated and extremely wide for me.
    I am looking ahead on your subsequent submit, I'll try to get the hold of it!
