Happy thoughts.

(from the last week alone)
  • a friend who gifts plane tickets for a (very) early birthday present.
  • direct West to East Coast flights.
  • DC in the fall.
  • the best bed.
  • the best sleeping imaginable in said bed.
  • little East Coast houses.
  • late night talks with Nate including the phrase, "... will help cultivate your Russian soul."
  • banana oatmeal cookies.
  • ordering exactly the right thing at dinner.
  • five year friendship reunions.
  • eating pie in bookshop cafes.
  • a red tree that was green the day before.
  • dresses with pockets.
  • hugging Lauren Richey in church parking lots.
  • long drives through fall foliage.
  • passing the Potomac.
  • picnics in parks.
  • watching planes fly overhead with Daniel and Brei.
  • (everything concerning Daniel and Brei.)
  • reading children's books out loud.
  • Sunday dinner with Chris and Becca.
  • hearing their three year old speak French.
  • late night talks with Kristina.
  • H picking me up from LAX.  
  • being welcomed West with a Persian feast at P's grandma.
  • kisses from that grandma.
  • a lovely, surprise package from one K.W.
  • and so forth.

Lauren, it was genuinely so nice to see you, and talk in church parking lots with you. Next time I will plan better, and our chat will be much longer. Thank you for you!

Cumo, that is a happy thought. I suspect you will be the cool mom for a long time to come. That is just your style.
