Happy Pictures

My mind has been feeling a bit mucky as of late. Truth be told, I am stressed about this weekend. Every year, for about 15 years now, my family has gone on this 3 day rafting trip. I went for many years until witnessing a horrible accident 4 years ago and have not been back since. I just can't do it. However, my sister, brother and Dad still go and every year I have a pit in my stomach for about a week until I know that they are all home safely. Everyone tells me to not feel this way, but sometimes you just cannot help those darn feelings!

I am trying very hard to not let myself get too carried away with "what ifs" but it is easier said than done. In an effort to calm my nerves, I like to look at things that make me happy. This has been a coping mechanism I have had since I was a little girl and it still works well today. I think, when I look at lovely images, I put myself in the photo - like I am there in that beautiful setting, and it calms me down. Here are the photos that are helping me today:

Apparently I have an thing for chairs, eh?

What are some things you do to relax when feeling a bit on edge?


  1. I feel your pain! My boyfriend flew out of province for work, and I got no text message when he landed. I know the flight got there, because I checked online. But because I never heard from him specifically, I did the whole "what if" thing....

  2. Lovely pictures.
    I hope you get to set your mind at ease soon.

    I listen to music.

  3. Oh I hope you can relax and enjoy yourself but I totally understand where your coming from. I loved all these pics, I am seriously chair crazy too!


  4. Those pictures are so pretty. Love the chairs.

    A 60 min (or longer) massage.

    And wine. And chocolate. ;)
