"What day is it?" asked Winnie the Pooh.
"It's today," squeaked Piglet.
"My favorite day," said Pooh

I have no regrets about discontinuing my photography business this summer. None at all.
Instead, I have so many happy memories, many which would not have happened if I was focusing on clients.
Like biking to Collins Creamery with Annie.
Tranforming Annie's bedroom to a more adult look.
Spending time with friends.
Watching girls who have been friends since childhood say good-bye as they each embark to distant states for their dream jobs.
Spending a beautiful day at the beach with Adam and Annie.
"Be present in all things and thankful for all things." ~Maya Angelou
Tending my garden.
Taking care of my pets.
Halle is looking and acting like a puppy again
after 3 weeks on medication for hypothyroidism.
Momo, who was stressed from all the activity in the household (culminating in peeing in the middle of my bed)
is now much calmer thanks to a daily dose of anti-anxiety meds.
"Write it in your heart that every day is the best day of the year"

Clothes shopping with Kerry.
Taking Adam's picture for his Columbia photo ID.
(new glasses or not?)
Feeling sad that it will be quite a long time before the driveway will be this full again.
Watching Vance make pancakes for the kids the morning we moved Adam into Columbia.
Moving into the dorm.
"Happiness is not in another place, but this place...not for another hour, but now." ~Walt Whitman
Selfie with my birthday present from Kerry.
Bringing a very nervous daughter to a far-away state,
worrying about her after we left,
and relieved to see her Instagram post after her first day at work!
I'm happy to say
I've had so many "favorite days"
