It was an emotional week, to be sure, but it wouldn’t be fair to say that it was all bad.
Here are some of my favorite things lately…
Spending last Saturday playing detectives and being coffee house and bookstore bums
Heading back downtown this blissfully warm weekend (38°!) and partaking in the North of Normal Frostival kickoff. We took our maiden voyage to the No Bull Country Club (where I had my first ever chicken and waffles), took a horse drawn carriage ride down Broadway, jammed out to the Front Fenders with some other locals in an outdoor heated tent, and ate cake pops by the fire.
Watching this old girl get tickled pink over a brand new toy
Getting in some of the silliest conversations with this guy
A Sunday evening soundtrack of Old Crow Medicine Show, Trampled by Turtles, and Brandi Carlile and whipping up these holey moley delicious Berry Shortbread cookies (calories don’t count on Sundays, right?…..Right??)
And hopefully things are starting to look up for a little while at least…D will be starting at a new job in a few weeks! We’re hoping that three pack box of Kleenex we just invested in will be cleaning up tears of joy in the coming months, and not sorrow.
Let’s be optimists, folks.
