Welcome to June! Feels good to start a new month and kick off the summer. I’ve been busy the past few weeks with my sister in town and a few work deadlines so it wasn’t until today that I got a chance to sit down and really started to think about the next few months. Turns out, there’s a lot to look forward to!
This month my calendar is already geared up for hosting barbecues, attending horse races, and helping with baby showers for two of my dearest friends. In July, I’ll be celebrating Independence Day in the US (yay!) and watching England play Argentina in polo. And we’re still planning on booking a vacation before the summer’s out too. Don’t worry, you won’t be left out. I will be writing all about it.
To catch you up on the last few weeks, though, here are the things that made me happy each day. I bet you can guess the weather most days just by looking at my pictures. I’m so transparent.

I’ve been continuing on with the 100 Happy Days challenge and taking a photo every day of something that makes me happy. There’s nothing like looking back on a few week’s worth of daily photos to make you realize how much you’ve done!
Since my last post, we’ve went to Barcelona for a long weekend, I ran the Nike ‘We Own the Night’ women’s 10K race (in less than an hour!), we had a friend over for a Sunday roast, and my sister came to visit. Here’s a glimpse of the action.

Back to the grind and boy did that 10 hour workday hit like a brick.
Last night I was cleaning up some papers and found a birthday card my dad wrote me in 2011. He starts off “Dearest Holly, the rush of the times is upon us and you’re in there with the best.” Couldn’t help thinking of those words throughout the day and smiling. The phrase just captures the frenzy of my day (and my attempts to control it!) so well.
This evening, a friend of mine shared the website 100 Happy Days on Facebook. Basically, you take a picture each day for the next 100 days of something that made you happy. I decided to have a little fun and sign up.
My inaugural “happy” moment is my dad’s card. Here’s to you Dad and to finding happiness in the rush of the times!
