… taking a break when you need it and not beating yourself up for doing so. Even if it’s a break from something you usually enjoy. And the break lasts for two months. And it means not meeting some goals you had set for yourself.
… having time to take in sights before seeing a dear friend get married.
… live performance that incorporates two of your favorite things. Ballet and vampires? It’s like the creators live inside my mind!
… enjoying pretty leaves while wearing a tank top (hello, best of both worlds!).
… seeing a favorite book brought to life perfectly.
… the comfort of traditions that remain despite our nontraditional way of celebrating Thanksgiving 2010
(which included shopping and eating our way through Charleston).
… relaxing with a glass of champagne and a good book in the middle of the afternoon on what would normally be a workday.
… going out on the town with Hubby.
… enjoying eight nights of candlelight to honor rededication and freedom of religion.
… salted caramel hot chocolate.
… finding and becoming part of a welcoming community where people have important things in common but are also so beautifully diverse.
… finding the perfect holiday present. For yourself.
… returning to the blogosphere rested, refreshed, re-inspired, and ready to reconnect.
