The Brightside

Happy Monday after an exhausting weekend! We spent more than 10 hours driving on Saturday and Sunday, but on the bright side:

Spring is here! I’m learning that that doesn’t mean much here in sunny California, but it’s a pleasant thought nonetheless. Hello spring! 

The Brightside

Yes, it was very difficult to lose that hour of sleep, but here’s the bright side we always forget about:

The sun will be out later! No more driving home from work in the dark. And for that I say thank you, daylight savings time.

Happy (gloomy) Monday! It was a rainy yet productive weekend, and while it was a little difficult to get up this morning, here’s my bright side:

I get to come home to a fully furnished home and my husband! Sometimes the little things make the biggest difference.

The Brightside

Well, hello there new week. We had an exhausting weekend mini road tripping to Cleveland (more to come on that!) so this morning was a rough one, but here’s the bright side:

No snow and above freezing temps! That’s really all you can ask for from a Midwest January. Hoping everyone on the east coast stayed safe and warm during Jonas!

The Brightside

Oops it’s already Monday evening, but here’s my bright side for today:

It’s the first Monday of the year! Some people may be depressed by this fact, but I see it as a day full of hope, potential, and productivity to come. Let’s start off the year right.

Happy Monday after the long Christmas weekend! It is an icy, winter storm morning here in the Midwest, but on the bright side:

I’m working from home today. Working remotely has got to be one of the greatest things about this day and age, am I right? 

The Brightside

It is a rainy, gloomy Monday, which is especially hard to handle after a long weekend in Southern Cali. But here’s my bright side for today:

This is the last full work week in 2015! Woo hoo! Gotta love the holidays.

The Brightside

It’s an extra foggy, extra-hard-to-get-out-of-bed Monday morning but here’s my bright side:

This Chicago winter weather! It was in the 60’s over the weekend, and we’ve barely had any snowfall so far this year. I’m constantly reminding myself that it could be worse and appreciating every moment of this mild winter. It’s so easy to love living here with December weather like this.

The Brightside

Mondays are rough. Mondays after a long a weekend are extra rough. So here’s my bright side on this extra rough Cyber Monday:

Christmas decorations are up! Everywhere I go — my apartment, the park I drive past on my way to work, the office — I am surrounded by the holiday spirit. Can’t help but smile with all the good cheer!
