In case you some how missed Mike Griffin’s blog post on cool things that happened today then you really should check it out and all the other posts that it inspired afterwards. The idea of trying to notice the good little moments in your day really appealed to me so I tried to keep a note throughout the day of all the great moments that happened. Unfortunately I was a little busy so I didn’t really have time to record the best moments of the day. Instead I thought I’d show you the amazing moments that happened this week.
