Saturday Smiles

This morning, I attended a memorial service for a friend who died way too young of cancer. She was a strong, beautiful, funny, intelligent woman and even though I was more of a casual acquaintance than a close friend, she blessed my life and I feel lucky to have known her. Death is so difficult but it helps pop life into perspective like nothing else. This poem was shared at the service--it paints a beautiful picture and provides a helpful perspective on death.

In case you need some pick-me-ups today, below are some things from around the web that made me smile this week.

Why you should travel young.

A disturbingly accurate portrayal of what happens every time that Gotye song comes on the radio (skip to 0:20).

Great idea for what to do with old holiday cards.

16 party bar ideas.

These look awesome.

Pretty shoes.
