Marvelous Monday

It’s always hard returning to the week after a fun weekend, so I’m jumping on board with Katie for Marvelous Monday.

Marvelous is having awesome bloggers and readers who teach me so much.


Marvelous is nostalgia because growing up and entering the real world is hard. Nostalgia is a beautiful emotion; one in which is only felt when we’ve truly lived. Nostalgia shouldn’t be a sad feeling, but instead one that let’s us know we’ve done things in life that we’ve loved. Accomplishments. There will be even more accomplishments and great times ahead.


Have a Marvelous Monday my friends!

  1. Mimosas and pizza and good company = the best things!

  2. it is so weird hearing about graduations. I am still in disbelief I graduated one year ago. where has time gone?

  3. I am also on board with the longer days. I looked outside yesterday at 8:30 and even though it was a rainy and gloomy day, there was still some sunlight! It was definitely a good thing 🙂 And mimosas are always marvelous 😉

  4. Anne @ says:

    Ahhh congrats! I had no idea you were graduating!

    That is so exciting, good luck with everything!!

    A weekend that involves mimosas is always a great one (:

  6. Good food and better company – I find myself saying that all the time 🙂 And I couldn’t agree more with you about the longer days. I was out at around 9:30 the other night and found myself marvelling at the fact that it was still bright out. Definitely a welcome change from the times where it would get dark at 4:30.

  8. Oh that pizza looks so wonderful! Graduations always make me nostalgic 🙂
