The Perfect Date

I had not thought once about the perfection of today's date until I wrote it at church this morning.

"Oh look! It's 10-10-10!"  I said to Charlie. 

I felt I must do something in recognition of this perfect date so I'm doing what I always do when I'm drawing a blank. 

I'm making a list....


10 Things That Made Me Smile Today

1. Seeing the kids conduct the service at church this morning 

2. The bike ride we all took around the neighborhood even though that was the first time I've been on a bike in years and there are A LOT of HILLS in our neighborhood!
 I may not be able to perform my normal daily functions tomorrow but that's beside the point today.

3. The weather.  It's 81 degrees, sunny and low humidity!

4. That Pepperidge Farm double chocolate cookie I ate. 

5.  The fact that number 2 made number 4 feel almost guiltless.

6. Realizing it was indeed NOT Monday like I first thought when I heard my alarm this morning.

7. Overhearing one of my children (not naming any names here) singing from the toilet.

8. Having Charlie ask me if those were my "wedding day" pearls I was wearing, as if I would be wearing my old faux ones now that I have the REAL ones he was so sweet and thoughtful to give me on our wedding day.

9. The debate I had with the Dracenator as to whether the dashes
should contain 3 or 4 acorns.  I won with 3.

10.  And finally, THIS PHOTO!

Happy 10-10-10!


  1. Aww, I love your 10 things! Happy 101010!
