hello there, friend,

i am a huge fan of taking advantage of the moment... yesterday was sunny and inching it's way toward warm. i left work a bit early, texted my sister, and we made plans to talk while walking. we talked for more than an hour... all the while i was meandering through our little town, past blooming dogwood and redbud, whose bright red heart-shaped leaves are just beginning to develop.  the sun was bright and the sky so clear.

when i got home, i grabbed a blanket and laid down outside with my book, the sun warm on my back, the words fresh on the page. the cat came and went, the kids did the same, and after a while i closed my eyes for just a few minutes. it was heavenly.
