At home, I'm loving the little things that add beauty to my surroundings...candles, flowers, and order. I had a case of house envy after taking Trent to a playdate the other day. The friend's house looked like something out of a magazine- so stylish, and immaculatey clean. I felt better though, after re-focusing my thoughts on things in my house that I could control.
Out and about, I'm loving city life, playing tourist with my family (those are my parents, above), and the feeling of hope I felt when I saw these crowds downtown, peacefully standing up for justice.
It was a festive atmosphere, almost like a party. There were also hundreds of police officers, which simultaneously felt weird but safe. They were just watching. I respect what the crowds were protesting, but I also remember when a few troublemakers managed to turn this area of the city into a very dangerous place.
Here is my daughter and my cousin. It was so fun to get to see family yesterday.
