Walking through the woods without a coat on. 🙌
Remembering how to ride a bicycle (“to keep your balance, you must keep moving”). 🚲
Washing dishes in the laundry sink, learning about countertop installs, building a breakfast nook(!).
Moving the orchid to a new sunny window.
Flying above the earth: watching ripples across the blue surface, a sky that melts into the sea, and a string of headlights strung across the curving highway.
Planning a gallery wall, organizing frames (practicing patience).
Traveling to new places, going on adventures, learning a new family game. 🃏
Seeing the cherry blossoms in Vancouver and Highland Park. 🌸
Hosting an end-of-year piano recital for my students (celebrating a year of learning).
Eating apple slices with speculoos (a healthy dessert?).
Researching pedestal tables and French doors, flights, and almond biscotti recipes.
Listening to Renaissance music in a beautiful space.
Planting the garden: tomatoes and basil, of course. Lettuce, kale, cilantro, mint, and flowers for cutting. Eggplant, peppers, oregano, chives, and perhaps a petite lemon tree? 🍋
Making travel plans (practicing our Italian). 🇮🇹
Reading Everybody, Always (Bob Goff), Building a Story Brand (Donald Miller), The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows), and The Most Famous Illegal Goose Creek Parade (Virginia Smith).
Rearranging the china cabinet.
Enjoying our first cup of Pistachio-Pineapple custard from Abbott’s on a sunny spring day (an annual tradition).
Practicing the piano after dinner (reacquainting myself with F-sharp major). 🎹
Wandering around a sleepy lake town one afternoon (discovering a few dog-friendly wineries on the way home).
What about you? What does your life look like lately?
