Happy Friday! Once again, High Five for Friday features five highlights of the week, my way of focusing on the little things that remind me to stay grateful.
1 – 30. I had such a great birthday thanks to a visit from my Mom and bro, plus a huge slice of cheesecake when I’m sad that we live far away.
2 – Pool Time. Amelia is a little fish and loves the water! It was fun to take her to the pool for the first time, especially with Mom and Brock there to enjoy a “first” with us.
3 – Stitchin’ Post. My local needlework shop is closing, so I’ve been wanting to visit one last time; we made a day out of it by following our shopping trip with a lunch date in Nashville with Sam. I picked up a few patterns and fabric, but it was mostly fun to browse and window shop.
4 – Lunch Date. It’s always a treat to deviate from the routine, say hi to Sam’s co-workers, and eat out for lunch at Grilled Cheeserie (but I have to admit I got super excited… and then bummed… when I saw that Biscuit Love is opening a new location near Sam’s office but it’s not quite ready yet).
5 – Gifts. Amelia’s presence is always my favorite present, but I was super duper spoiled this year by everyone else too., from fun things for home (like a mixing bowl I desperately need, and a milk frother for homemade chai lattes from my parents), to crafty endeavors (like the Mom & Me knitting book from my brother), and technology that I’ll use every day (air pods for our daily walks from Sam) were the icing on my birthday cake.
