Three beautiful things from the past week:

1. Rudi hands me hot apple cider twice this week as I talk on the phone late at night.

2. A curly-haired little girl (who reminds me of Kim’s Katherine when I last saw her two years ago) runs up the sidewalk in front of me. She stops to admire small scarecrows decorating a restaurant’s front step.

3. A haircut and a pedicure had me outside on 18th Street in the early evening. I pause to make a phone call before heading home and notice a sign announcing a free chocolate tasting at a shop I’ve never visited. I met the chocolatier, who lives in town, and sampled four of her truffles — a cream-free butter chocolate, a maple-syrup filled chocolate, a coconut-almond filled chocolate, and an olive oil and pine nut white chocolate. Yum! Seriously, all were terrific!

What’s been beautiful in your life lately?

Mmm, those truffles sounds delish!

Let’s see if thinking of three beautiful things will improve my mood today…

1. The foliage!
2. Saw the lowest gas price I’d seen in a while this morning.
3. My Starbucks chai this morning, a beautiful thing in and of itself, was free.

Perhaps you will have a little child of your own some day(?)
