A blissful friday morning

This morning started out with a surprising cup of espresso in a cup that I had purchased a while ago (picture 1) and love but hardly use. I usually have my coffee in the same mug but because our coffee maker broke this morning (not so blissful), Will surprised me with an alternative. Thank you!

I had plans to just kind of chill out at home and maybe do some laundry this morning since there was no library but, our cranky Lily (also not so blissful) had other plans in mind. (picture 2)

Since being outside always makes her feel better, I got us both ready and we headed out.

Am I ever so thankful to Lily for making us go out for a walk! Lincoln Rd looks so beautiful right now. There are flowers EVERYWHERE!!!!

We checked out some art (pictures 7 and 8. I like to call my self portrait Mona Claudia ;)), the water fountains (pictures 17 and 18) but our favorites were ALL (and I do mean ALL, look at all the pictures below) the amazing different kinds of orchids in all different colors that decorate the trees. If you are on Lincoln Rd, please look up and check them out, they are breathtaking!

It truly was a blissful friday morning.
