while going through my pictures from 2008 and reading back in my journal, i started to think about this day last february that could go down in my history book as one of the greatest days ever. nothing huge happened that day, and maybe that's why it was so wonderful. josh recently changed his facebook picture to this one, and breanna commented that it looked like "pure happiness" and it was.
we had gone out the night before, i think to creekside, and woke up feeling surprisingly good considering the amount of drinks consumed the previous night. we met up with dana and ian at z tejas for brunch. brunch wasn't awesome because my order got messed up twice, but it was still fun. after brunch, dana, josh and i went to target. i can't remember why we went there in the first place. maybe josh needed socks? i don't know. but i decided to buy a bubble machine and dana bought a 2 foot frisbee. we went back to josh's, got some cds and the laptop, and headed to the courtyard at his apartment complex. the following pictures depict that afternoon.
maybe some people experience fun like that all the time. i don't think we do. but i think that we should. why should "pure happiness" depend on what you're wearing or where you're going or what you're going to do once you get there? if you're in good company, why can't every day be this great? i recently resolved to be more fun in 2009. it sounds simple, and i hope that it will be. this resolution isn't just for myself, but for those around me. i don't want to be the downer, complainer anymore. lately i've found myself being dissatisfied with events that should be fun. i don't know why that is but i'm going to make an effort to have a good time rather than sitting around thinking, "i should be having more fun than this." i'm never going to be happy if i am constantly thinking something should be more than it is.
so now i'll leave you with a question. do you have a favorite day? it can be your favorite day for any reason. it can be huge or small. or whatever it is that made it your favorite.
