Moonrise

If it’s Thursday, it’s time for three beautiful things from my past week:

1. Sarah and I spent Sunday afternoon out in the Virginia countryside. We picked apples, ate cider doughnuts, and explored a cute, historic downtown.

Mmmm… Doughnuts…

2. Julia and I spent Saturday afternoon at Union Market. We checked out an artisan fair, and while the Hawaiian doughnut shop was closed (must get there earlier next time), we did get to try faloodas, a type of Burmese dessert drink. It’s made with flavored jellies (kind of like mini jello squares; she went with coffee, I with pomegranate), rose water, basil seeds, rice balls, milk, and ice cream — and is very rich and very tasty.

3. Rudi has a new job working for one of the dockless bikeshare systems (shareable bicycles that can be left pretty much anywhere around the city, rather than needing to be returned to a specific place) that launched in D.C. in September. It’s a move into a field that he’s really excited about exploring, and I really couldn’t be happier for him.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world recently?

Yay for Rudi’s new job! And, cider donuts! Quintessential fall!

@Kat: Thanks! We’re really excited about it. And I agree about the cider doughnuts. So much so I bought another dozen last weekend!
