what today is

Today is my 5th wedding anniversary, and my mother's birthday.

What I'm going to do is celebrate two people who have meant a lot to me, and who won't be around in the way they used to be.

To kick off my party, here is a list of other things I love:
  • fabric stores that cut a generous yard
  • early afternoon mail delivery
  • baby feet
  • light'nin bugs
  • dahlias
  • laughing with my aunts and grandmother
  • trees and images of them
  • watching Schmin cook
  • eating what Schmin cooks
  • talks with friends
  • sewing for Gracie
  • sun roofs
  • cotton
  • peanut butter anything
  • little girls' dresses
  • warm summer nights
  • bike riding
  • traveling with my father
  • the smell of rain
  • the moment in writing a play or a story when everything else falls away
  • grace

Awww! That made me smile? Know what I had the other night (since official start to fabulousness isn't 'til tomorrow)? A brownie smeared with peanut butter! OMG, I wanted to DIE! Happy SEVEN TWELVE!
