campaign, chimes, and calm

In a week that’s been filled with visits, emails, phone calls, cards, and packages, it was hard to narrow it down to a mere three beautiful things. But I did:

1. Macy’s has new window displays up advertising its wedding registries. When I saw the 12th Street window proclaiming its registries were open to all couples, I was pleased. But when I saw their 13th Street window had two female mannequins together against a backdrop of all permutations of betrothed couples, I was really impressed. Go Macy’s!

2. In at least three of the trees in the park next to the Historical Society, wind chimes dangle in the warm breeze.

3. Sitting in Pete’s Apizza, surrounded by the people here in D.C. I like the best, I feel one of those rare moments of peace. It does not feel dissimilar from slipping into a perfectly warm bath or being embraced by a loved one after a long absence.

Those are just three of my beautiful things during this birthday week. How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

1. We had some warm weather this week. I love being able to open the windows without having to freeze for it.
2. Livia had her 1-month checkup. The doctor said she’s growing perfectly (as if we didn’t already know 🙂
3. I got a homemade valentine from a dear friend. It was probably the nicest thing I’ve ever received in the mail.

@Karen: Hooray for warm weather and perfect babies. And hooray for old friends who like homemade cards.
