Hooray For Sunshine

I am happy for sunny days and views like this.

Growing up in Southern California, I took sunny days for granted. Now that I am living in London I really appreciate them. It's amazing how much better you feel when the sun is out. Sunshine is nature's antidepressant. When the sun is out I feel energetic and happy. I feel like getting out into the world and participating in life. This is a photo I took this morning on my walk through a lovely park near my flat. It's from my mobile phone so the quality isn't the best. But you get the idea.

  3. Sunshine is definitely one of my favorite things...probably because summer is my favorite season....I too love to open all blinds and windows on nice weather but even when its not because I crave natural light. I love the picture, who cares if it came from a mobile phone...its great. :)
    You and I have yet another thing in common...the sun and its rays.

  8. Happy List Saturdays is such a wonderful idea, there is always something in a day that can bring a sparkle to the eyes. Your picture looks like you caught a gorgeous day and caught a little vitamin D. Have a brilliant rest of your weekend.

  10. I couldn't agree more. Here in Alaska we have had numerous days of sunshine and clear skies and it makes me so happy each morning I wake up and see it and even more when I can get out and enjoy it. It's amazing how sunshine does that to you! Glad you got to enjoy some of it

  16. How beautiful! I think I recognise that view from my own time in London. You are right that sunshine is fully appreciated when living the British lifestyle. I love it how the merest hint of a ray sees office works sprawled on any grassy verge with their tops off. Makes me laff... x
