1. This quote. As much as this political climate and administration has drained me, I still live within this hope. Love love love.
The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof. What I want is so simple I almost can’t say it: elementary kindness. Enough to eat, enough to go around. The possibility that kids might one day grow up to be neither the destroyers nor the destroyed. That’s about it. Right now I’m living in that hope, running down its hallway and touching the walls on both sides.
– Barbara Kingsolver
2. The cutest office supply ever. Of course, it reminds me of the movie, Up. And of course, it would get lost under stacks of paper on my desk, but still… ADORABLE.
3. People who are nice, even when they don’t need to be. I had a funny, silly exchange with the voice at the Starbucks drive thru last week. As I drove away, I noticed he had written me a message on my iced latte. I never met him, I never saw him, I only heard his voice, but his small gesture made my day.
4. My mom!!! Happy birthday, Mom! I love you, and your grandies do, too!
