It really is true: happiness, I totally believe, is a question of expectations vs. outcomes. Lately my experiences seem to far surpass my expectations, perhaps because I'm not placing my happiness at any given moment on the outcome making me happy.
Trying to quickly post some of the many shots I took at the Converse press party last.. what day was it? Wednesday? Something I had no particular expectation for - I was honoured and pleased to be invited, of course, but it ran from 5:00-8:00 and it had been a full day and I'd told my husband I'd just show up @ 5:00 sharp and stay a few minutes. That's was my plan.
But as they say: when you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.
Some really good friends were there, some were people I'd met here & there, some I was getting to know.. the waiters were great, one or two we'd even met at other events.. fabulous mini bacon cheeseburgers, and cartons of macaroni & cheese and little grilled NY style reubens with HOME MADE NY style rye bread.. not to mention people were getting smashed on 'Long Island Iced Tea' served in gold rimmed tea cups and saucers.. let's just say, we closed the place down. They literally had to throw us all out. They even gave us little striped paper bags of popcorn: for the road.
Thank you to Amy and Becky and the fabulous Converse UK people: what a great place to work, you lucky ducks.
This is such a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend so far - and it's only half over! And I've got more to say- and to show - about this event but hey, I know most people are somewhere else, away. We're off to see friends at the seaside tomorrow and quite frankly, are having the most wonderful staycation. I'm happy as a clam, swimming every day. Hope you are, too, wherever you are.
