It’s Saturday, and therefore time to look back at three beautiful things from the past week.
1. I took homemade cookies to my friend Jenna for her birthday last Sunday. En route to her dinner, a little boy on the Metro escalator asked me what I had in the box I was carrying. I told him it was cookies. He pointed at the bow on it and said, “No, it’s a present.” I told him that was true — it was a present of cookies, which blew his mind. He was visibly (and adorably) boggled that is was possible to get cookies for a present.
2. The weather on Monday, which I had off from work, was perfect, and I had a chance to read out on the porch in the sunshine — probably for the last time for several months.
3. I finally got my hair cut, which I’ve needed to have done for weeks. I feel like l lost 10 pounds of hair!
