Good morning guys! Can you believe its July 7th? It doesn’t even seem possible that my birthday is 2 weeks from today. TWO WEEKS. that will be here in no time! July is a big celebratory month for me (for many reasons): my mom’s birthday, my birthday, my sister’s birthday, multiple friend’s birthdays, Cassidy Lou’s birthday. Plus we have a friend visiting one weekend and my sister flying out for her birthday weekend!

The last week has been a bit trying for me, so I’m definitely looking forward to all the good things this month 🙂

Anyway, I digress. The whole point of this post was to inspire you to (genuinely) compliment a stranger today. I wore this outfit when I was flying back to Michigan in June, because I feel much better if I’m put together at the airport. While boarding the plane, an older gentleman tapped me with his newspaper and told me “That’s a really great outfit.” His compliment took me by surprise (probably cause he hit me with a newspaper), but it made me smile. It was nice he went out of his way just to tell me that my outfit was cool.

So, your challenge for today – compliment someone you don’t know! Society could use a few extra smiles. 

As always, thanks for reading!

    Great idea! I love it when something like that takes you by surprise, in a good way, and just makes your whole day better. It’s amazing how one little thing like that can be just the “thing” that someone needed to smile and feel better. Love this!
