There's Always a Bright Side (Right??)

How I've felt this week. (via)

This week. Oy, this week.... has been the MOTHER of all weeks. (No, seriously... And just when I thought that nothing else could possibly go wrong, I just got a speeding ticket... My first ticket since my teens! And yes, I cried... but only as the officer left.) The purpose of this post is mostly for me to remember that there always IS a bright side. (Even during THE. worst. week. of all of graduate school. EVER. I wish that were hyperbolic...) So, yes... Here are some good things that happened this week along with all the other crap:

I got to sit on a lot of babies (which = $$), including this little cutie (and her twin brother!) who let me braid her hair!

Clearly, I'm new to this braiding thing. But isn't she still adorable??

I got to play with this sweet dog. His name is Jack.

I found out James Franco is going to be in Season 2 of The Mindy Project! This show just keeps getting better and better!

Photo from here (But I first saw this one on Mindy's instagram.)
Kate and Wills had their baby!!!

In case you've been living under a rock, this is Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge. :) (This photo and many other good ones from Buzzfeed.)
Also, these look-alikes are HILARIOUS!

And this was my favorite meme:

Google Maps now has a BIKE FEATURE!!

This is the address to the old Georgetown J.Crew (which is thankfully just up the road from the new one),
where I resisted temptation and didn't spend a dime! How's that for a triumph??

The weather this week was PERFECT, and the world continued to be beautiful, despite the dreariness in my soul...

Canal Road and I have a love/hate relationship. But this beauty at least made the hassle a little more bearable.
Riding my bike across the bridge in Woodley Park.

I'm going to a National Symphony Orchestra concert tomorrow night at Wolf Trap. 

My scripture study this week has been very powerful, meaningful, and personal. (Nothing like trials to bring us closer to our God, eh?)

And my conversations today with April and Caitlin meant the world to me. (Love you both so much!)

See? It hasn't ALL been bad. YZ over and out...
