good morning and happy monday!  today i am choosing to not be consumed by things i can't control (read previous post). i'm choosing happiness.  the sun is shining and i have so much to be grateful for.  this week will be full of time spent with friends, finishing up some planning for this (are you coming? don't forget to RSVP in the comment section!) and time with my family this weekend! is it friday yet? ;)
