Tonight we ate dinner outside. Although it was a little chilly, we gathered around a patio table with some of our closest friends. The kids ate on a blanket in the grass. The breeze carried their giggles to us.
Perhaps it was because of the sunshine . . .
Perhaps it was because I spent a day-off carefree with a best friend . . .
Perhaps it was because of juicy strawberries . . .
Or maybe it was because of freshness of Spring . . .
But I felt renewed. The stress floated away today.
I felt like we were celebrating the joy of sunshine, the hope of Spring, and friendship simply by eating dinner outside.
(Now if only I can keep these feelings in spite of the snow being called for this weekend . . .)
Unhurried. Finding the magic in the middle of living. Capturing a life of ridiculous grace + raw stories.
