perennials, from the heart, and lunchtime scenery

I haven’t looked forward to a weekend this much in a while, so I’m really glad it’s Thursday today.

Here are three beautiful things from the last week:

1. I left work early on Friday, which meant I walked home from the Metro during daylight. Along the way I passed blooming snowdrops and croci (crocuses?). It absolutely brightened my foul mood to see the yellow and purple and white flowers.

2. My parents made me handcrafted gifts for my birthday. Mum sewed me a cheery apron based on one of hers that I always use and framed a trio of old photos of us, and Dad made me a mix cd that I’ve listened to every day this week.

3. The start of the work week was warm and sunny, so I ate lunch outside. On Monday I sat in front of the White House and on Tuesday I parked myself outside the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. I forget sometimes exactly how cool it is to live and work in D.C.

What’s been beautiful in your world?

As the week was gone in a flash, it’s hard to pinpoint one specific beautiful moment, but I can tell you that there have been a lot of them lately. Marshall is almost walking, almost talking. I’m so proud of him and amazed by his progress. He has the best laugh and he shares it freely. He’s a joy.

Thank you again for the awesome baby gifts. He really loves his stroller cards.
