Happy Bonus Day


I get weirdly excited about a few random things. Leap Day just happens to be one of them. It seems silly, but I just love the idea that there is a whole bonus day once every 4 years. Normally, this morning would be a giant bummer. Our coffee machine is broken, it's a Monday and our kitchen needs a deep clean. I'm not mad about any of it.

Some other things I get ridiculously excited about:

Coffee mugs. Whether they are colorful, funny, souvenirs. I love coffee mugs.

The email from the library telling me one of the books I requested is there.

Take off on a plane. It's my favorite part.

Getting anything in the mail that isn't a bill or advertisement.

Stumbling upon restaurants that end up being the most amazing.

A glass of champagne.

Hitting 10,000 steps before noon.

Lists. The act of making them and the act of checking things off. I love it.

Finishing a project at work or even one small task that makes someone else's job easier.

When a book makes me laugh really hard or cry a little bit.

I'm sure I could go on for a while, but I'm off to get myself a donut and coffee to start this magical Monday. What are you doing to celebrate your bonus day?

  2. Library emails and special mail make me happy too, also books that make me laugh out loud are some of the best.

  4. I might need to borrow this post idea!

    I also get excited about Leap Day - it feels like a holiday, doesn't it? I wish I was off today.

    COFFEE MUGS. They spark joy in me for sure.

  6. yes to all of these. when a book makes me feel anything, it makes my heart so happy, even if i'm mad or crying because it is just amazing to me that a book can do that. take off is kind of my favourite part, but it gets old real quick when i feel like we're gonna crash haha. i quite like when we land :)

    I love discovering great restaurants too. It's like an adventure.

  8. I will come back to this place, its huge and open, and have really tall ceilings. Wait staff at Chicago venues was also pretty good. Bartender was awesome and personable. I was really pleased with my party here. Ha! I highly recommend these guys.
