Project Smile - January

Count your smiles instead of your tears; count your courage instead of your fears. - Unknown

January was full of ups and downs for us; a new year, a new home, good news, followed by bad, but I'm grateful that I found something to smile about every day:

1st - The first day of a new year full of possibilities.
2nd - Work out routine resumed after three weeks off. Ouch!
3rd - Getting out of the house despite the rain.
4th - Pretty in pink nail polish.
5th - Believing that miracles can happen.
6th - A new path to walk.
7th - There is nothing better than a PB&J to put a smile on my face.
8th - Four loads of laundry, grocery store AND Target, washed and dried my hair, started a new book. It was a VERY productive day.
9th - Lunch and movie with a girlfriend.
10th - Gorgeous walk along Newport Beach strand.
11th - I bought my domain name.
12th - A visit with an old friend and a wonderful compliment.
13th - Today, we have lived in our new house for one month and slowly but surely are making it a home.
14th - Taking time to stop and smell the flowers.
15th - We hung our first picture!
16th - Golden Globes and Thai food with a fellow movie lover.
17th - We rode Becky the elephant!
18th - Today was not a great day, but snuggles with my son always make me feel better.
19th - The wonder of nature.
20th - My sister.
21st - A visit to an old neighborhood I used to once frequent a lot and delicious quiche.
22nd - Champagne brunch with my sister, Aston Kutcher (in the movie No Strings Attached) and shopping for shoes!
23rd - A bowl of cereal makes a great dinner.
24th - Play date at our house.
25th - Covering up the grays, finishing one book and starting another.
26th - Meeting a newborn, visiting our old neighborhood and wine time.
27th - A beautiful walk along the coast and lunch.
28th - A fun day at the Irvine Ranch Park with friends and spend a lot of time thinking of my dad today with love, he would have been 64 today.
29th - Blowing bubbles in the backyard with Lucas.
30th - Dinner with friends and all our kids! Pure comedy.
31st -
The first day of a new round of music class.

I hope every day of January gave you something to smile about and that your 2011 is off to a great start!

Stopping by from Alicia's blog! Lots of reasons for smiles here. I love the way you listed something for each day. I may have to steal that format for next time. :) Mostly as a way to force myself to find the good in each day.

Wow! I love this. I've started picking at least one thing that I'm grateful for every morning. It really makes a difference in my attitude the whole day!

Great smiles, every one! Even on the not-so-interesting days, those kiddos sure give us smiles....

What a great idea! Perfect timing too. Maybe I'll give it a shot in February! Only 28 days, surely I can do it.

Your smiles made me smile :)

I like this! I may try it. See if I can remember to make a note daily.
Of course I can't remember my vitamin daily. But I'll try.

I always love your smiles. My favs might be the pretty in pink nail polish and the productive day. Wonderful reminders to me that smiles can be found in the smallest of things. Thanks so much for linking up and supporting me all these months! You're the best!!

I love this list! I especially love Day #20, Day #21 and Day #22. I really need to start doing this! Maybe this month, it is the shortest month of the year.
