Sarah and Dolma are in a long-distance friendship and despite phone calls, Skype, Facebook, Twitter and E-Mail, being on different continents mostly sucks.

Sarah and Dolma both recently moved away from old, much loved friends and are finding making new friends is harder and more awkward than they remember.

Sarah and Dolma are at the beginning of exciting careers, but this often means lots of hard work and frequent disappointment.

Sarah and Dolma spend a lot of time commiserating.

BUT — Sarah and Dolma are determined to do what they can to focus on the positive and share the things they love.

Because no matter how hard things get or how sad and lonely you feel there are still things that make you smile, things that make you happy.

This blog is about sharing these things.

(P.S. The two main inspirations for this blog are the, “What’s Making Us Happy This week” segment on NPR’s Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast, and this wonderful blogging/photography project that two other long distance friends are working on.)
