What are you up to this weekend? I think husband and I are going to check out this movie (doesn't it look great?) and maybe get sushi, and we're having dinner with some good friends. It's supposed to be around 70 degrees tomorrow, so get out and enjoy it!
Whatever you're doing, I hope you have fun! xo

Husband and I start childbirth classes tonight. I have this mental image of lots of he, he, he, hoo, hoo, hoos. It's probably nothing like that, but hopefully I don't laugh out loud and illicit those "what's with this lady?" looks.
And, how about that win last night? It's so refreshing to see the country still hopeful for positive change. Obama's speech was on the mark. Congratulations, Mr. President. Now, make us proud!
p.s. Way to go Maine and Maryland!!! And, to Minnesota for refusing to perpetuate hate.

““Do I love you this much?” she’d ask us, holding her hands six inches apart. “No,” we’d say, with sly smiles. “Do I love you this much?” she’d ask again, and on and on and on, each time moving her hands farther apart. But she would never get there, no matter how wide she stretched her arms. The amount that she loved us was beyond her reach. It could not be quantified or contained. It was the ten thousand named things in the Tao Te Ching’s universe and then ten thousand more. Her love was full-throated and all-encompassing and unadorned. Every day she blew through her entire reserve.”

Just wanted to share a little essay that I really enjoyed reading today. Friends are one of life's great joys.
