"Lovely Day".

There are good days.
There are bad days.
There are also days when we think it would have been better never to have gotten out of bed in the first place.

But then there are days we want to hold onto tight, days we never ever want to end.
Today is such a day for me.

I am getting a visit from Ireland; thus I will be taking a short break.

I am leaving you with a version of one of my old time favorites from Bill Withers. Every time I hear it, I can not help smiling. Sharing it today seems to be so very appropriate.

Wishing you all a truly lovely day.
See you in a week.

Perfect song...hope it is a perfect day. Make that "hope it'll be a few perfect days."

Claus said...

I heard that song in a movie once, in a YouTube video from a dance performance, but never knew the singer. Great song indeed! I hope you have perfect and lovely days ahead!

Enjoy your time with the handsome man! A perfect way to spend a lovely day. I love "Overjoyed" by Stevie Wonder, guaranteed to give me goose-bumps! x

I love this song! And your new blog background and photo. The new top part made me really look again at the quote about life not being a problem to be solved. I sure like that, and today it's a good reminder for me. I've been looking at it kind of negatively.

Hope you have a wonderful week.

Holly said...
