Hi my darling friends, and I hope that you are getting into the full swing of things for June. June is one fantastic month, don’t you think? The days are bright and sunny, the breeze is a treat and adventure is right on the horizon.
This past weekend, we went out for a bit of summer exploring right here in North Wales.
First, we visited Bodnant Gardens which has a seasonal summer bloom theLaburnum arch. You see, each June for just a few weeks this divine arch is in full bloom and it is divine. The blooms suspend from the arch and it is magical. And I strolled from one end of the walk to the other in sheer awe.
Then, from Bodnant Gardens, we headed to the beach where Freddy was able to run and run and run. And while Freddy and Neal played catch, I found myself sitting in the sun taking big deep breaths. And during that 15 minutes in the sun, I found myself wonderfully happy. In that moment, I didn’t want for anything and perfectly content. With the summer sunshine and wind on my face, I took a moment and I took a deep breath. I calibrated myself, and there I was in a place of simple happiness.
Making an effort to step back and search for the ‘good stuff’ and simple moments of happiness always boosts my mood a bit. And, when I am having a ‘not-so-good’ day (yes, those even happen to me) having a memory bank of simple moments of happiness turns my frown upside down. (Yup, I went there.)

So this week, I am wishing that each of us can find a bit of our own ‘good stuff’ that makes us smile and puts a spring in our step. Did you have any moments of sheer happiness over the weekend? As always, I would love to hear from you.
Happy Monday friends!
