Happy Friday

Happy Katie

When you are really happy and really busy shoving your own fingers into your mouth to chew and suck on them, and your mother is right there in front of you smiling at you, sometimes you have to smile with such force that your eyes crinkle up more than they ever have before in your young life.

Fridays are nicer than ever, because they mean I get to spend the next few days with my Katie girl. Happy Friday, from Happy Katie and happy me.

Sunlit & Shaded

Sunlit & Shaded

Yesterday morning I kept walking through and past places where the sunlight fell down through the branches and leaves in actual, visible streams of light. It reminded me of those pictures where a stream of light represents God, coming down to earth to touch us.

In a very literal way, it felt like a blessed morning.

Clouds & Bricks

Yesterday morning it thundered and stormed and the rain came down hard. Yesterday afternoon there were still puddles in the alleys I passed on my way home from the train.

The bricks and the top of the reflected building are there every day. The clouds, the reflection, and the water are not.

New entries up in the journal. One about weddings (specifically about my wedding), and another about babies (specifically about that baby pictured right up there). Both from emails to friends.
