It’s time once again to look back at three beautiful things from the past week. And given that I’ve spent the last three hours glued to CNN watching the horrible news from Arizona, I really, really need to focus on the good.
1. One of my favorite moments of my Winter Classic experience took place before we ever left for Pennsylvania. Everyone in my family – mom, uncle, siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews – all donned a piece of Caps gear for our annual self-timer photo. Everyone was so enthusiastic about sharing our fun, which just made me so happy.
2. One of the newest additions to the office is a disco ball, purchased as part of our holiday decorating scheme. It hasn’t been turned on since the competition ended, but we all discovered last week that for about 10 minutes each afternoon when the light is just right, it covers the ceiling and walls with charming sparkles.
3. By a stroke of (very fattening) luck, two food trucks – one a favorite, and the other one I’d been wanting to try – made their way to my neighborhood at lunchtime today, so instead of leftovers, I had a lobster roll and a slice of Baltimore Bomb pie.
