what’s making me happy right now

February 7th, 2018


I’m taking Bear to Disneyland tomorrow!  He’s extremely excited to see Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and (of course) Lightening McQueen.  We live about 90 minutes away but he’s only been twice, so this is a *big* deal in his little toddler brain.

I went to Japan almost two years ago and the experience was life-changing (and I don’t use that word lightly).  Afterwards, all I wanted to do was go back — and in less than two months, I finally am!  It’s been longer than I hoped, and I’ve gone other places in the meantime, but I can’t wait to revisit a place that was so magical for me the first time.

Writing This Post
I know, I know — it’s been a while.  Over the past year, I’ve struggled a lot with what I want from this blog and where it fits into my life.  For as long as I didn’t have any answer, this site stayed on the back burner.  But… I miss it.  I miss having an outlet to share my thoughts, I miss the people who used to read this site, I miss the community that I spent years developing here.  So I’m happy that I’m writing again.  Hopefully there are still a few of you guys around to read it.

Surprise Roses
I kid you not, as I sat here typing up this post, my doorbell rang and a florist showed up with a bouquet of red roses for me.  That actually happened.  So that’s both pretty wild timing and something that’s making me exceptionally happy at this very moment. 🙂

More soon!

    I’m delighted by your post! We all grow as life goes on.  Without having to write a long, one-topic blog, a paragraph or two about what’s been going on or what’s on your mind is perfect. Glad you like our California sunshine.  Have a magical time at D-land tomorrow I have a little Buzz Lightyear myself.
