When life gives you lemons

Make lemonade. Or lemon blueberry muffins. Or cut them open, enjoy the smell and pretend it's summertime.

The point is, everyone has days or weeks or months that don't go well. Years even sometimes. But usually, dwelling on the sadness and frustration never does any good. And sometimes you need to remember you do things that seem tough now but only make your life better in the long run. So instead I want to share a few things that always seem to bring a smile to my face lately...

E-mails from my stepdad. All the way from Afghanistan.

The fact I've started drinking bottled rootbeer almost regularly.

Catching up with my friends from across the country. Thank goodness for internet.

Live music. (and the Thursday night crew I attend those shows with)

And remembering Spring is right around the corner. Bring on the grill outs, beer out of mason jars, ballet flats, and dresses everyday.

Next time you're feeling blue, think about the things that make you smile. Trust me, it helps.
