Here we are—back to Monday! Hope the weekend was a good one. It’s pretty chilly here in Chicago today so getting out of bed was a challenge.
I know a lot of people are still suffering from the storm. For those of us who aren’t close enough to lend a helping hand we can at least donate in some way. As many of you know the Red Cross can use donations. <— click to help out.
Now to move onto something that seems so unimportant in comparison– here are a few of my favorite finds around the web that I hope can brighten your Monday.
Remember to count your blessings each day and with that I segway into this fun DIY Project that will help you do just that!
