Yesterday I didn’t have too great of a day.
I worked too much, and didn’t eat enough.
What I did eat was absolute garbage, and mostly just consisted of one thing: doughnuts.
I arrived home way past my usual ETA – deflated, rain-splattered, and exhausted.
Holed up on the couch, I ate some carrots, and watched a few episodes of Arrested Development, before schlepping my rickety bones up to bed.
By 9 o’clock I was out like a light.
And oh how I slept.
Today, thank goodness, was different.
The rain was good enough to stay away, and my workload was manageable.
I even only ate one doughnut. ONE!
(Seriously, any day where I stick to one dessert per meal is a win in my books.)
It’s also my big sister’s birthday.
I miss this beauty cat more than you could possibly know, and it makes my little heart sad knowing that I cannot be with her to help her celebrate. However, I take solace in knowing that in but a few short weeks I will be there in New York PARTYING IT DOWN, feting her wedding like my life depends on it.
So happy birthday Kate! You are the most magnificent big sis a gal could ever hope for.
In other wonderful news, today I met up with Ms. Laura Beth of Perched on a Whim AND IT WAS AWESOME.
And just plain old fabulous.
She is in town visiting with her husband, and I was lucky enough to catch her before they took off for the wild, bewildering beauty of Whistler village.
I couldn’t have asked for a better lunch hour.
Sometimes you meet people and everything just clicks. It’s easy – the conversation, the rhythm, the energy.
Our time together, although brief, left me energized and enthused.
What an amazing thing that we could connect through our writing, and have the chance to meet each other in person.
The world truly is a magical place!
AND YOU GUYS.
My first blogger meet up!
This just means I will get to meet more of you, right?
Because goodness knows you all do light up my life.
So happy Wednesday folks.
I couldn’t do it without you.
