Given that it’s Saturday, it’s time to look back at three beautiful things from the past week.
1. A sunbeam hits my glass of fizzy wine, making all of the bubbles turn into tiny rainbows. (The picture doesn’t really do it justice – there were many more rainbows than the iPhone captured.)
2. My second round of ice skating lessons is going much better than the ones I took back in January. Not only are my skills improving (well, except for the stops), but I woke up Thursday morning with my quads and core hurting, rather than my feet. The pain, of course, is not a beautiful thing, but the fact that it’s in the correct place – and not in my feet, as it has been – means I am actually doing things right.
3. After many weeks of scheduling and re-scheduling, I finally make it out to Virginia to spend an evening with my friend Mary and her family. We drank wine at the pool while the kids swam, and then headed to Falls Church for a fun dinner at a “beach shack” restaurant. It was great to finally connect after far too long.
What’s been beautiful in your world this week?
