Some Nights are Just Good Nights...

It was yellow tonight in Dallas as we labored under a tornado warning. If by laboring I mean: watched two good movies over two bottles of wine with my husband.

Simple pleasures: we found out that Davy loves grape popsicles. We sat on the front porch and watched the sky go from yellow to orange to gold. Then we quoted Robert Frost's "Nothing Gold Can Stay." Russ said, "Stay golden, Ponyboy." Which just made me love him more.

Sometimes you just gotta rejoice in the little things, you know?

Treasure those simple joys; they pass all too quickly.
Love to you, your wonderful husband and your adorable daughter. Grape Popsicles -- I like them but prefer anything cherry flavored.

THAT is a great night! When there's spontaneous shared poetry...magic. I love that you could have a night like that b/c y'all deserve it.

Glad the storms didn't get you down!
