After a painstaking eight-and-a-half-hour drive (!) from home sweet Orange County back to California’s northern half, I picked up this greeting card from Trader Joe’s on a whim at the check-out counter for no sensible reason other than the sheer fact that it made me immensely happy.
My huge take-away? Warm, fuzzy feelings coupled with post-rush hour traffic delirium are the perfect recipe for impulse purchases.
This morning, though, I’m grateful for tedious, drawn-out car rides and hurried trips to the grocery store. I’ve tucked my greeting card in a nook of my closet where I can always see it and stored my feel-good sentiments for some future rainy day.
