Reasons to Smile

Last week, I wrote that one of my resolutions for 2013 is to make this a beautiful year; whether it be by making myself healthier, by taking more photos, or by spending more time with friends - there are a million ways to make 2013 an incredible year.
And because this little space on the internet is such a big part of my life, some of that spills over into my blog.  So starting today, I'd like to take time every Saturday to talk about some of the things that give me a reason to smile throughout the week.

Over the last couple of weeks, I've found a lot more time to spend with friends. I head back to school in a couple weeks, and it's been great to see the people I don't get to for months at a time.
I had my first news article published today in a local paper.  It felt awesome to see my name in the paper.
The weather has been beautiful so far this weekend!  It feels like it's in the 50s at least right now, and tomorrow is supposed to reach into the 60s!
Good books.  It sounds like such a small thing, but a good book sticks with me.

So what about you?  What's happened this week that gave you a reason to smile?
