lightning, soccer, and practically perfect in every way

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. The fireflies have made their first appearances of the season!

2. It was a really good week at volunteering this week. We brought snacks to celebrate one of the other coaches’ 25th birthday, which both she and the kids loved; the kids had a fun time trying to score on me in the goal (with our bitsy nets, I am a pretty good goalie); and some of the kids who usually sit on the sideline actually played in the game at the end (and seemed to have fun).

3. My friend Chris got married last weekend and invited us to his and Julie’s wedding. And it was delightful. All of it. From the ceremony to the reception, from the venue to the food, and from the raucous joy of both their families to easy camaraderie of the volleyball folks in attendance (we even got a shoutout in their vows), I can’t point to a single thing I’d change. Except maybe that we were having too much fun conversing to do much dancing, and that doesn’t really seem like a negative at all.

What about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?
