Wedding Memories, Golden Delicious Apples, and Bedtime
This week's Three Beautiful Things:
1. My wedding day was nine years ago today. It was a glorious September day. All my friends and family gathered, we enjoyed a very quick ceremony, and then the celebration began. We danced and drank and laughed and cried and hugged and kissed and danced some more. It was a very good day.
2. We picked apples at the farm last weekend. Several varieties were ripe, but we chose golden delicious. My big boy loves them and keeps asking, "Mom, can I have another delicious apple?"
3. Lately, my boys have been sitting together on a chair while I read stories at bedtime. Sometimes quietly, often not. Still, it's one of those moments I want to freeze in my mind. Then when I put my little guy in his crib, Aaron climbs up the side and asks, "Can I give you a hug and a kiss night-night?" Nathan stands up and they hug and kiss, and my cheeks hurt from smiling.
