Life As I See It

#100HappyDays 31-40

July 30, 2014

Since I dropped the ball on posting days 21-30 on time, this one will be. All my annual posts have gotten a little hard to keep track of but it’s a nice challenge for me. I feel like my pictures are starting to look repetitive: the tennis courts, cups of tea or my family. I guess it’s because I am very family-centered in the summer and playing a lot of tennis but it’s okay. I’m happy with it. That is the goal of the challenge!

Day 31: Tea cup. Yogi tea has been a staple for me at night. I am always a fan of the messages on the tea bags. This one is basically the tag line for my life: experience is wisdom.

Day 32: Play time and tubing. I love playing with my niece. It is so cool watching her grow and get better at playing with toys she had no clue what to do with a few weeks ago. Tubing is a summer favorite. Watching my fearless four year old niece tube was insane.

Day 33: Books from Amazon. I ordered a bunch of education books to read this summer and I am very excited to start them. I might be an education nerd but I love it. It was a happy coincidence that one of the books is actually a textbook.

Day 34: Tennis lessons. My family is bit by the tennis bug. My sister borrowed one of my lessons when my neck was still hurting and I got to watch. It’s also a nice bonus that the picture was a very cool shot.

Day 35: Tennis court. My neck was feeling better and I did my lesson the next day. Sunny days on the court are my absolute favorite. There is something very photogenic about the stadium court.

Day 36: Telestrations. This is one of my favorite games for large groups. This has been a routine this summer when we have a lot of guests and it is the best thing ever. The glass of wine was a nice addition for my saturday night.

Day 37: Poolside. A friend came to visit and after a rainy and cloudy morning, the weather cleared so we could go in the water. Swimming in the pool and chilling in the hot tub was wonderful.

Day 38: Willowbend. In case it isn’t already obvious, this place is my second home. This view was really cool. Between a morning of very strange weather, the sunlight was a pleasant surprise.

Day 39: Shades and a lounge chair. My summer has been wonderfully relaxing. Getting to sit by the pool is a great luxury and I was feeling particularly artsy at this moment. These are my new favorite shades.  I have not gone anywhere without them since I got them in Israel. IMG_1547

Day 40: Niece and nephew. They are both attending the day camp where I play tennis and I occasionally get to do drop-off. I love it because I get to spend quality time with them in the morning and they are both pretty adorable when they arrive at camp. They were totally intrigued by the cup game.

    I’ve seen a ton of people doing this on Instagram. I feel like it’s such a great way to realize how blessed you are & to be grateful for the little things.

    I love that you’re keeping up with the 100 happy days – I started it and wish I would have followed through with it. I have been looking for a new tea to try so I’m definitely going to look into the one you are drinking, I love the little words of wisdom. And Amazon is my “go to” for books! I want to look into handling your finances, ones.
