reflection of the week

You may ask yourself what in the world is “living in blithe and bliss??”

Well, it’s my little lingo for deciding to approach each day with an attitude and way of being that promotes a bit of blithe and bliss; or in other words happiness!

I know – its sounds cheesy..

But as some of you know.. I am a big cheese fan! Cheese platters, cheesy romantic movies, cheesy thematic parties, cheesy jokes are always my go to in nervous situations…. Cheesy inspirational quotes are always my mantra because they are the easiest to remember….And best of all, my favorite cheese are other cheesy people!

You know- its so great when you can just relax with a refreshing glass of ginger ale with a slice of lemon and a plate of cheeses and just cheese it up with the best of cheese balls laughing and goofing the night away…  not taking things too seriously and just embracing the moment at hand is probably about the cheesiest thing I could say.. But I mean it!

I say today lets cheese it up.

Lets be the best we can be, lets smile and acknowledge strangers, lets love our jobs, lets hold the door open for others, lets chat with our neighbors, lets believe in love, lets say yes to the extraordinary and the simple, lets look both ways AND up and down, lets jump in the pool and run in the sprinklers.

Today you are the BIG cheese. All you have to do is make the platter.

wonderful cheesy-ness; what's on my cheese platter this week:

"Letter's to Juliet" is about the cheesiest romantic comedy movie you can get... but the story is so sweet and i do love to day dream that there really might be a possiblity of a fantasic story of love that could come true... one day.. LOVE IT!

i will leave you today with one last cheesy quote:

Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.  ~Judy Garland
