I've needed a jolt of happiness lately. We're at the busiest part of our year at work so the stress level is high, and on top of that I've been dealing with some personal disappointments and family issues lately. I just needed a little something to cheer me up.
Enter August 1st. I subscribe to Geninne's Art Blog, not because I'm either artsy or craftsy (I'm definitely not), but because everything Geninne posts is just so. damn. pretty. My favorite posts of hers arrive on the first of each month, when she shares a free desktop calendar. The calendars are always bright and cheerful and filled with birds and flowers. This one was exactly what I needed today.
Imagine looking at that every day when you start up your computer. It makes me feel better about having to be at work already.
