Good Things on the Internet

Today was horrific. Lots of things went wrong this morning, the worst being that my car hit a patch of ice while merging on to the interstate. I was able to regain control of the car, only to immediately skid out on a second patch of ice and go careening off the side of the road down an embankment into a very steep ditch. I’m physically ok, and by some stroke of luck the car is, too. But emotionally? Kind of a wreck. I’ll write more about that later.

In the meantime, I was in need of some serious cheering up. So I turned to the internet, and the internet provided. Here’s what made me smile today:

About Kelly

Kelly grew up in the suburbs of Boston, mere minutes from the Atlantic ocean. For several years she lived in New York City where she found the two loves of her life: Publishing and David. She moved to the Twin Cities for her husband, and eventually managed to pick up the pieces of her career as well. Although she’s learning to appreciate lakes, she misses the ocean ferociously.
