Weekly Pictures of Happiness?

So I have clearly been slacking, but regularly scheduled DPH will return tomorrow. My brain has been all mushy the last couple weeks, but has started to gel again. Things are good. Here are some WPH instead.

Last year, our landlord tore down ALL the ivy that was growing on the front of the house. This made me really sad for awhile, but I noticed it is growning back as strong as ever! (Insert metaphor here)

Peaches at the Chicago Farmstand. It is like an indoor farmer's market on Randolph street. It isn't as great as the real farmer's market, but it is always there and pretty nifty, neat, and swell.

The vintage tartan bag made me swoon. Makes me want crispy fall weather. I might even haul out the breadmaker.

    Megan, in keeping with your DPH theme — and to help you get jump started on “blechhhh days” you might enjoy perusing the WorkHappyNow blog. Here’s a sample:

    http://www.workhappynow.com/2009/06/what-do-i-do-if-im-unhappy-at-work/

    Just everyday, practical, good advice, and bound to help us all get back on the right track when we feel “derailed”…

    Love,
    Dad

  2. Hey Megan,
    Although you don’t know me I wanted to start by assuring you that I am not a cyber stalker. I just came across your blog and loved your pictures. Ok, with that out of the way, I wanted to let you know that the ivy picture is great! It really embodies everything that Chicago is to me (used to reside there) and is one of the best I have seen in quite some time. Keep up the good work!
    On a related note, I am new to the blogosphere and just started my own. It relatively new but I would love to have you stop by and give me your thoughts.
    Again, I hope this wasn’t too random or creepy. I am not solid yet of blogging protocol. Thanks!
    Cameron
