stuff for smiling:
Well-behaved boys and fast-moving traffic on the way to Tennessee Friday night.
My niece playing games on her iPod with her cousin.
My husband snuggling up with our 3 month old niece.
A delicious food truck lunch with my nephew at the Dogwood Arts Festival.
My mama and her gorgeous grandbaby, Penelope Quinn.
Kids playing at the park.
Grown-ups playing at the park (my sister).
A child’s curiosity.
This. THIS THIS THIS.
Donuts at dusk while their cousin practices baseball.
A bed full of the three cutest guys I know.
A family day at Dollywood with my hubby and our boys.
Boys drivin’ cars.
Boys drivin’ ducks.
Boys splashin’ and laughin’.
His hand on mine.
Train ride in the mountains.
Finally getting home and seeing these two snuggling on the couch.
And the things that did not make me smile during that same time frame? Tears. Or at least some negative feelings.
1. Only having 2 days to spend in TN.
2. Traffic jams that meant an 8 hr drive home.
3. Theo’s eyes swelling up from seasonal allergies. Hello, Zyrtec. We remember you from March – June 2012.
5. Boston Marathon.
6. My very, very good friend moving far, far away. Good, good friends are hard to find and keep in the same state apparently.
7. Other stuff. Blah.
How was your weekend?
