August Happiness Challenge -- Day 31

Look at my happy kitty
Wednesday's happiness: Michigan Avenue. This summer has been really humid and uncomfortable, so I haven't spent much time outdoors. Wednesday, though, was sunny and clear and comfortable and green and gorgeous. 

I walked up Michigan Avenue and took it all in. Millennium Park was verdant and bustling. I stopped at a restaurant I haven't been at since before Christmas and had a lovely solo lunch, finishing both my mystery and a drink before returning to the office ... refreshed and happy.

Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.

If you want to play along, just come back here (meaning to this blog, not this individual post) each day in August, looking for the happy cat. Every day I will try to have a post with the headline: August Happiness Challenge: Day [X]. Leave a comment and then post your own daily happiness, with August Happiness Challenge in the title to make it easy to find.
