Yesterday my friend Denise and I went to visit her daughter who is a sophomore at one of the local state colleges.
We visited the farmers’ market, which is the biggest I have ever been to. It was a beautiful fall day, and the colors just exploded everywhere.
After we were done wandering around the market and that area of town, we had lunch at a Turkish restaurant, visited the local yarn shop, and waited in line for ice cream.
After driving home I spent the evening with my sister, who was in town for a grand total of 29 hours. All in all, it was one of the most perfect Saturdays in a long, long time.
I was taking the 11-year-old daughter of a friend of mine home tonight from a cookout. We were driving through the town square of our small-town county seat. “There’s a shooting star!” she said. It went right over the courthouse dome.
It’s the first one I can remember seeing. Ever.
Thanks Taylor. I’m glad I got to share it with you.
How do you find your smile? Forget about too much to do. Go out to dinner with your best friend and favorite four-year-old.
Make sure it’s a place where you can eat good food outside. And one that lets the four-year-old play with pizza dough.
Watch her make smiley faces. They’ll be pretty contagious.
She’ll share mustaches with mom.
Don’t forget the goatee.
Let the laughter ensue.
It will be a good evening.
