The Daily Grind Video

Other than his close family, it seems as though no one took Cory Monteith‘s death harder than his girlfriend of the time Lea Michele.

The two Glee stars were so in love at the time that Cory was found dead in his hotel after overdosing, and it seemed like it would really take a huge toll on her.

Fortunately, it looks like Lea is doing a little bit better every day, since she was spotted arriving in NYC yesterday and she actually flashed a smile!

Wearing a casual denim jacket with some grey sweatpants, Lea showed some of her pearly whites as she came out of the airport.

It’s been a little over a month since Cory’s death, but it looks like Lea is going to be able to grieve and recover just fine.

Check out the photos of Lea’s first smile above.
