Three Things

Life has its ups and downs. That is certain. Sigh... One can easily lose perspective.
 I have found a simple little method for keeping my spirits aloft. Every day I seek out Three Things that make me feel ESPECIALLY content ~ Three Things that give me a little kick in the pants to remind me that life is good ~ my little bits of "snow in the air" if you will.
These Three Things can be as simple as a curtain fluttering in the breeze...or a perfectly ripe banana...or an off-color joke that makes you laugh so hard that your ribs hurt. Anything.

So these are my latest Three Things:

Bill Cunningham via The Sartorialist
While reading the Sunday Style section of the New York Times, I was reminded of how much I ADORE Bill Cunningham. Did you see this film? It made me cry.

I spotted these on my way to the library. I think tangerine is the color of the year.

And I found this cool video of The Syndicate of Sound while attempting to load " Little Girl" onto my ipod. Suits by the sea in 1966. Awesome.

What are your THREE THINGS??????


  1. Oh, I haven't watched the film yet, but this is the second time I see it mentioned online. I must hurry hurry and watch it!
    Also, beautiful flowers, such vibrant colours!

    1. I think you will LOVE this film. And, yeah, so many gorgeous flowers here in San Diego...lots of sun...sometimes maybe a little too much!

  2. I meant today, the second time I see it mentioned today!

  3. Bill Cunningham's New York has been in my Netflix queue for a long time, and I CLEARLY need to watch it ASAP!

  4. I'm the same. Even if I've had a bad day, I try to see the silver lining & pick out the moments that were wonderful. I think that's why I love instagram so much because I can capture the beautiful little moments in each day & gmo back to them whenever I want.

    My 3 things for this week would be:
    1.Sharing cocktails, too much food & plenty of laughs with my family by the beach over the Easter weekend.

    2. Seeing a wonderful version of Macbeth at the Sydney Opera House the other night by Bell Shakespeare. Lots of inspiration there!

    3.Sharing burgers & fries and some giggles last night with my girlfriends while getting our hair done.

  5. That's what life is all about finding little things that makes as happy especially in this not so happy days ;)
