a dream is a wish your heart makes...

when it comes to today, that phrase says it best. today has quite simply been a dream of a day. met with the "new earth" book club girls this morning. when we get together, it's magic. pure and simple. and today we've begun a collective project, the nature of which i'll keep under wraps for now. but i can guarantee you, in the days and months ahead i'll share more. what i can say though is that if one holds fast to her passion, the universe will find a way for said passions to manifest. i feel like a balloon fated to pop, that's just how excited i am.

following book club we attended our daughter lindsey's second annual frogmore stew dinner. frogmore stew is a silly name for an all out shrimp boil and i doubt anyone does it better than lindsey. the photos i've attached to this post say it all. what fun i had delighting in the company of our kids, the grandbeans and my daughters fantastic friends. i feel so lucky that our kids include us in celebrations with their friends. i just sat back and took it all in...babies, kids running around, the laughter of these beautiful young people, the bliss of the day. simply perfect.

life is good, i say it all the time. my life isn't perfect, i have my stresses, but damn...i just can't discount or take for granted a single heartbeat. in life we have the opportunity to laugh or cry. we have a choice. i choose to laugh, at all the silly, wonderful, scary, intense, uncertain issues in life. i can't help it...everywhere i look, all around me, there's a million reasons to smile. and after book club today, let's just say there's now a million and ONE reasons:)
