28 Things That Brighten My Day

Today is my 28th Birthday!!


My super-great husband gave me a brand new camera (and even allowed me to pick-it out, so I was sure to be happy with it). I can’t wait to play and learn more about my new “Canon PowerShot SD890IS 10MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom” – sweet!

In celebration, I thought I would share 28 things that are always sure to brighten my day!
