What's a Good Day?


A good day is stepping outside and discovering a few of these little white flowers blooming and remembering how they filled the yard of your childhood home.


A good day is looking up and realizing spring is here and I’m on schedule with my line edits.


A good day is when Reagan sits on the porch because she’s decided it’s time to go in rather than making me round her up.



A good day is sharing the most amazing mini pulled pork sandwiches with  a friend, and she lets me have the last one for tomorrow.



A good day is discovering that you love a spicy mayo dipping sauce on handmade onion rings more than you love ketchup on them.

It’s diving into a 1/4 rack of baby back and spare ribs and watching the meat fall right off the bone. Having that sweet smoked taste fill my mouth and swearing my tastebuds are shivering in delight.

It’s savoring the tangy and tart of the cucumber salad.

A good day is listening to a local band sing their hearts out.

What’s your good day look like?

  1. Looks like a very good day, Kourtney. Yesterday, I spent the day writing outside on the patio. The weather was absolutely perfect…it was a very good day. 🙂

    I’m glad you had a good day. You’ve earned it! My kind of good day would be similar. Maybe throw in a movie with the family and some time for leisurely reading. 🙂

  3. I notice food features several times in your idea of a good day. Mine would too! 🙂 Good food interspersed with some fun and relax time, and also ticking some things off my to do list. That would be a good day for me. So actually very similar to you!

    • I love eating a really truly delicious meal. I don’t get to eat out what I like very often so when I do, it’s a very good day. 🙂 I got everything off my to do list that day too! 🙂

  4. A good day would be one that’s not raining! (and with low humidity and mild temps)
    Dog willing to come inside, onion rings, extra sandwich, and cupcake – that’s all good!

    That DOES sound like a good day. I had a good Friday. Got to the halfway point of editing my manuscript from my editor. And, if we’re talking food, Saturday I had won ton nachos topped with a prosciutto cream sauce, Asiago, mozzarella and banana peppers. OMG. Finger lickin’ good.

    Here’s to more good days ahead for all of us.

    • LOL. My good day was also on Friday! Well done! Food is definitely part of a good day. 🙂 Those nachos sound amazing! *Clinking imaginary glasses* To many more good days for all of us.

    I think I’d like to have your good day, please. Would it be ok if I stole it for my answer to your question?! 😉

    What a great day, Kourtney! You felt good about being on schedule with your work, and that always feels great to me too. May you have many more great days this summer!

    • It’s funny, I had a burst of spring optimism. And I realized how many little good things can happen and add up to a good day. Being on schedule is definitely one of them. Hope you do too!

    Your good day makes me hungry ☺I love hearing about simple ways people find enjoyment in their lives. Nothing fancy, but authentic. Wonderful.

    • LOL. It is the most amazing BBQ ever.I love that place. I try to see what’s good in the day to day. Otherwise, you end up waiting for the good when it’s really all around you.

  9. Now that WAS a VERY GOOD Day Kourtney 🙂 so many things to be thankful for.. 🙂 and I so enjoy those simple things in life..
