I have many happy places. One of them is standing in front of my Keurig as it brews a steamy, hot mug of Sumatra coffee... I then procure a chocolate chip fiber bar, pour crème brûlée creamer in this mug and my day is off to a good start. I'm smiling and looking forward to that first, delicious sip of warm, brown, goodness.
After the happiness has all been consumed, I move on to other happy places. This is one of a small pair of white and ocher colored socks on which I'm currently working. Socks are definitely a fun and happy project for me. My favorite part of sock knitting is turning the heel. It's so cool to see it emerge after a series of stitches that don't necessarily make sense when you look at them on paper. But once completed, you have a heel!
As I was sifting through photos on my computer, I found so many other photos of happy places. But when I found this one, I knew it belonged here. This is about 2004 or maybe even 2005. Were they ever that small? They are the cutest, smartest, most wonderful little people I have ever met. Not to even mention...my handsome, loving husband. This really is a happy place and a happy life.
