grateful for you - always, always – love you so much it hurts. grateful for the ability to change my mind – okay, maybe I would like a dog at some point – an XL dog, in fact. grateful that life evolves, situations change, and ideologies expand. for intelligent conversations. for neighbors who drop by – and stay. for summer in a bottle from wolffer estates – both white and rose are just sooo pretty. for an A+ (no unusual spots) at my annual skin cancer screening. for lazy boat days. for living only 5 minutes from my office – one hell of a commute, let me tell you. for jump roping, farmers marketing and food prepping and the other routine, monotonous moments that keep me healthy. for the way a song can totally transport you back in time. for cali friends in town this week – TWO dinner dates and overdue catching up. for summer sun showers. for the smell of fresh cut grass. for all the giggles. for a life that is this good - real good.
