Warm Hearted Thursday

Things that made me happy this week

My Mom is in town, and if I could kidnap her and keep her all year long, I would. Yesterday, I took the whole day off, and we went to breakfast, to the zoo, and to dinner. Some of the highlights were pancakes, sea lions, and lorikeets. And there was the majestic hornbill that flew to a perch above my head...so close that my heart may have skipped a beat. And miniature antelope, and laughter, and margaritas, and more laughter, and Mexican food, and heartfelt conversation. I haven't had that wonderful of a day in a long, long time.

Little things that brought me joy

Sunshine and barbecue ♥ registering for classes ♥ fresh tomato and basil pizza ♥ the scent of lilacs ♥ reassuring words from friends
