Thinking happy thoughts

Yesterday I had a case of the blues I just couldn't kick, despite trying all my favorite remedies.  While I was out on a walk I decided I should snap a few photos of things I saw that I count as blessings, that make me happy.  I know I have a good life and need to count my blessings, which is what I'm trying to do here.

The Trinity Church.  Not only is it beautiful, but I also absolutely LOVE hearing the bells.

Wall Street.  I love seeing a piece of history.

Even though I've only tried these nuts once (pretty good!) they smell SO good and sweet.  I love when I get a whiff, especially during the winter, without even seeing the stand.

Not only do I love Billy Joel, but life is pretty good when you get to walk the streets of New York, while listening to this gem.

While walking the Brooklyn Bridge (my favorite place in the City) I saw the bike lane, which made me really excited for my bike to come-hopefully this week!

It always takes my breath away.

It's not the same without the Twin Towers, but I still just love it.

I'm convinced there's absolutely no where in the world with better people watching.

I have a fun week to look forward to as well.  Maria's birthday tomorrow, bowling with coworkers Wednesday, spa day Thursday, Rachel coming down from Boston Friday, and our Pajama Jam on Saturday.  I'm so sad to miss out on camping in the Catskills this weekend, but I guess you can't do it all.

What are your blessings?
