hello monday

I got the idea for "hello Monday" from Lisa Leonard's blog ~ not my original idea! I've always enjoyed reading her hello Monday posts, so thought I'd do one of my own today. It's just being aware of and being grateful for some of the little things in your life.

Hello dreary, raw, rainy Monday morning... 

Hello to a gathering of family and friends at a cousin's birthday party yesterday...

 Hello to a wonderful yoga practice this morning ~ and extra grateful that my hubby was able to come with me this morning and enjoy the practice as well...

 Hello to looking through a couple of cookbooks to gather some new recipe ideas...

Hello to a cup of herbal tea this afternoon and pink nail polish ~

Hello to getting a new-to-me book in the mail from paperbackswap ...

 What are you saying hello to on this first day of the week?



  1. Enjoyed this! Thanks for introducing me to her site/blog.

  2. Great post, Melanie! I like this way of looking for the positives and blessings in our lives at the beginning of the week.

  3. Great idea! I love your party photo. It looks like the men would just love to pounce on all the food! Made me laugh!

  4. Great post! I am so far behind that my hello Monday should be - get busy and do a post. Will try tomorrow. LOL


  5. Monday lovelies, all of them, Melanie. How wonderful that your hubby accompanied you and took part in you yoga class!


  6. Hello Monday and now Tuesday-such a lovley way to begin the week, Melanie!
    I began my week by adding a fresh coat of my new favorite nail polish to nails that needed some color.

  7. What a great idea for a post. I really enjoyed it. I hope you're having a good day, Melanie.

  8. That IS a nice post idea ....:) If it wasn't raining I was probably mowing grass on Monday. I've lost count. It's raining again this morning :)

  9. I love this idea for a post. This Monday I'm coming down from having a house full of people and too many late nights, because of a birthday and visiting my blogging friends :)


  10. I enjoyed this post. I also read Getting Over Tom a couple of years ago. Some stories I liked more than others, but I won't give anything away because I don't know how far you are in the story... :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a kind comment - I read and appreciate each one!
