It’s Monday again and, as I ride to work in a slightly belated and severely under-caffeinated state, it’s time to look back on three beautiful things from the past week:
1. On Friday, I spent more time laughing than any time in recent memory, both at work and at a housewarming in the evening. And not in a lame “haha, that’s funny” way, but actual side-splitting, laugh-’til-you-cry laughter. I want more days like that.
2. I bought and decorated my Christmas tree this weekend. The majority of my ornaments are from my childhood, and each comes with a memory of when I made it of the person who gave it to me. I love taking a moment to think about holidays past in the midst of the here-and-now rush.
3. Last night, I attended, for the third or fourth year in a row, sprite & Rudi’s tree trimming party. It’s always a fun evening, and it makes me very happy to be part of my friends’ holiday traditions.
