Cooler, Similarities, and Saved

It’s Saturday once again (how did my vacation week go so quickly?) so it’s time to look back on three beautiful things from the past week:

1. I never miss my hometown in winter, but when I leave 100-degree DC and arrive in 75-degree Binghamton, like I did on Sunday, I’m reminded how lovely it can be in the summer. (And the weather has remained stunningly beautiful – clear, warm, and sunny days, cool-but-not-cold nights – for most of my week in New York. Yippee!)

2. Seeing/meeting so many of my mom’s cousins at the family reunion was great fun – and it was so interesting to see how alike we all are. (I was, however, a little jealous to learn that pretty much every branch of the family got the gene for dimples except for mine.)

3. I got a huge fix of preservation geekery while visiting The Porches Inn and Mass MoCa in North Adams, Mass. Seeing excellently – and creatively – rehabbed buildings makes me so happy.

Honorable mention: Though I’m posting this before heading off to Linc & Michele’s annual 4th of July party, I’m so excited to see all my college friends that the anticipation alone counts as a beautiful thing – and I’m pretty sure the event itself will make next week’s list.

What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

    1. Being home!!!!
    2. Finding family photos I never knew existed.
    3. Too many good things to mention from our travels – but it was all of the family that met us along the way, supported us, joined and laughed with us…we are truly blessed beyond belief. It has been overwhelming. I still think of a particular wave taking out a particluar kid on a beach and the look on his face and I start laughing (OK, cackling) all over again. Thank you!
