Compliment, Winner, and Sweep

Bonus beautiful thing: I ate gelato in the sunshine this afternoon.

It’s Saturday, and time once again to look back at three beautiful things from the past week. Which I am doing earlier than five minutes before I want to go to sleep, for once. Go me!

1. A couple of colleagues and I met up for lunch in Dupont Circle with an artist pitching a project to us. After we’d been chatting a while, she suddenly stopped mid-thought and said, “Oh, wow. I just noticed how awesome your boots are,” which tickled me immensely. (Also, the thing she wants to work on with us is fab and I really hope it works out.)

2. I won a gift card to a chocolate-themed restaurant (I know, right? Could there be a more perfect place for me?) at a social media networking event on Wednesday.

3. While I totally understand that it’s not a beautiful thing to my friends/family who are Yankees fans, seeing the Evil Empire get swept by the Tigers was a step towards repairing my faith in the baseball gods. Now, if the Giants can just continue their rally and defeat the Nats-killing Cardinals, I will be able to watch the World Series in an entirely non-pained state.

What’s been beautiful in your life this week?

    1. After a VERY rough week, our middle won 4 sparring matches to clinch first place in the 5- state regional tournament. He did it with kicks to the head (a beautiful thing to see, actually), and in a big way in the last bout. The bonus: some kids asked for his autograph afterwards!!!
    2. Had a blast riding a waterslide with the kids. In fact, I was just another kid. Couldn’t get out and up the steps quick enough to do it over and over. It was a hoot.
    3. Impromptu football game in the front yard…and I got no kidding tackled by our flag football player. Took my feet out completely. Seems like only yesterday the parents could hold their own, but no more. The kids are quick, and strong, and strategic.
