My beloved twins came over the very day after I got home. That was serendipitous and lucky and blessed and all the other happy adjectives. They are some of the people who make me glad to live in Maryland. We rode scooters and climbed trees and I felt loved and trusted by people as precious to me as the family I just left. It made such a difference.
And the weather was lovely. For a minute.
I spent a lovely day in DC while Eric went to a tournament basketball game during the day. His teams lost, but I explored the Smithsonian Castle, the Tidal Basin (the cherry blossoms were just starting to think about blooming), and then met up with Alysa at the Botanical Gardens. That was a total treat to see her for a few minutes. Love that girl. This whole day made me happy to be back in my own familiar places.

brought to my mind.

And just like that, I'm home, settled in, and ready for the next adventure...Sara's WEDDING!!
