more simple (and small) things that make me happy:

  • discovering that when my 2-year-old niece B plays wii and sees my mii, she repeats my name: ‘amy, amy’
  • waking up smiling
  • long meandering conversations with a friend
  • my nieces wearing the hats and scarves i made them for christmas (in july)
  • walking into my favorite thai restaurant on a busy saturday night and being greeted as a friend by all the servers i know
  • knowing that saturday will bring family for a week-long thanksgiving visit–yay!
  • ‘lively discussions’ and ‘fun exchanges’
  • fall in california–it feels a lot like summer, but it’s different in little subtle ways
  • the anticipation of pumpkin pie and homemade rolls
  • having B tell me all about her snack and playing wii and her halloween costume on the phone; hearing her say ‘i love you’
  • dates that involve wandering through bookstores
  • squeezing snapdragons so they snap

to be continued…

    I’m glad to see my little family is involved in at least three of those things! I too love squeezing snap dragons!

    …I wandered through Sam Weller’s bookstore two days ago…..didn’t buy anything but thought of you as I wandered around. THE best part, it was a blustery day and the air was crisp and as I jay-walked across the street my hair blew around in every direction…..I love blustery days…..can’t wait to spend a week at home…..can’t wait for you to meet your new neice too! We are all excited!!!
