We are smack dab in the middle of a kitchen renovation. Like, all the cabinet doors off, pots and pans all over the floor, random sink in the middle of the kitchen while we hunt for a new counter top kind of renovation. All while this is happening I've been trying to get rid of this nasty cold. So I've been a little cranky. (ok a lot) One thing I think Justin learned a long time ago is that when you marry a strawberry blonde you get the best of both worlds. Sometimes he gets a good wife who is the sweetest blondie around, and other times he gets a fiercely feisty redhead. The good news is, he is the best man for the job when it comes to handling the latter. :p Just the other day I was being a big crank, throwing a fit about being out and about when I just wanted to drug up on cold meds and go to bed. I mean it was pretty pathetic. If I were him I would have pushed me out of the driver seat and drove off to start a new life. :p Instead he parked the car, ran into the grocery store and came back out with sunflowers, Sprite and Pumpkin Delights (guilty fall pleasure). He came around to the passenger door and I wrapped my sickie arms around him and hugged him like crazy. My bad mood was instantly gone. The guy just gets me. The point of this crazy story is that sunflowers fix everything. And I mean everything. Is it even possible to be sad/upset/mad/depressed while holding a bright yellow sunflower? I think not. I think doctors should just start handing them out at their offices. It would be a less expensive way to fix everyone's problems. I really think I've got a good thing going here. :p
Labor Day weekend was coming to an end and we weren't getting far into the renovation so I suggested we visit this sunflower farm I've had my eye on for awhile. And that is exactly what we did. It was a scorcher out, but I never complained once. Like I said, sunflowers = happiness. We ended the day with some Chick-Fil-A and it was about the closest thing to a perfect day I have had in a long time.
|I mean, Hudson's smile says it all. I can't take it.|
So beautiful right? I'm so glad we got to see this before the end of the season. These sunflowers make me smile. The kitchen renovation could wait. ;) Happy Tuesday! Xo
