after a day spent

amidst the love and celebration

of a beautiful wedding

the night is waiting.

and then…….!

Standard

a day of ups and downs and ups again. began with the farmer’s market – flowers, fruits, veggies, jams, babies finding music there and dancing to live strings as the sun gleamed down. and then…. a car surprise – went from oil change in 15 minutes and 19 dollars, to front suspension in 2.5 hours and 838 dollars. threw in a free light bulb.  and then…..thai dinner – hot spicy fun and laughter and burning lips with friends, including our volleyball player in a cast ‘with a slight break/chip’. and then……ran into aut/out-fest, filled with rainbows, beads, italian ices and drag queens.  and then…..wandered into a wedding back at the scene of the morning farmers market, more music and beauty everywhere.  and then… a  bicycle built for 7.  full circle.  and then…….

But then there are magical, beautiful things in the world.

There’s incredible acts of kindness and bravery, and in the most unlikely places, and it gives you hope.
