peeking from behind clouds

Some days it's hard to be thankful for much-- like when your husband's show gets canceled. (Especially when you already set some serious balls in motion when he got that now-non-existent contract.) But regardless of my family's employment status, my life is full of many wonderful things.

The chocolate raspberry pavlova I made last night
A kind and loving husband who is my best friend (even when work stressed him to the max)
A healthy daughter who was finally able to go to the doctor yesterday
A shining sun and a mild winter
Gossip Girl streaming on Netflix (hey, a girl is allowed guilty pleasures.)

pancake positivity

I think the thing that made everyone in DC happy the last two days was the weather. It was over 70 degrees yesterday! On February 1st! Amazing, I tell you. This winter has been so mild, which is particularly beneficial for my mental health.

Also beneficial is learning that today is Candlemas, so I have an excuse to make and eat pancakes for dinner. Who doesn't love Brinner?
