things that make me happy
I think I desperately need a dump of things that make me happy. In no particular order...
When you know that you are going to be hoarse after a ride because you spend three hours chatting without taking a breath (this is one of my favorite ride pictures ever).
When all of your pups fall asleep in a giant pile.
When you get a couple of race pictures that don't make you want to go on the air diet and quit running forever (note: I am not saying these are "good.").
When you make eggplant pizza with balsamic glaze and it is BALLER.
When you buy a new pink hoodie, just for fall.
When you start cooking up a little surprise from a lot of people for your husband's 40th birthday that you know is going to make him really, REALLY happy.
When your swim gear is extra lame, as is your attempt to show off your guns (note: impossible to flex and self-photograph).
When all your puppy wants is to snuggle up in your lap and sleep peacefully.
When you look at the pieces of your life laying around you, and you don't know how to turn them into something that is complete and makes sense. But then one day you get off the phone and leap into the air because you firmly know which direction you'd like your journey to take you next.
And with a lot of luck, it will.
