for many reasons, this was a great weekend. i saw friends, family, laughed a lot and ate good food. but i also had some things hanging over my head, worrying me, putting me at unease. so i kept coming back to this post. reminding myself that even the not-so-good parts of this weekend i was lucky to have, especially since they were balanced out with so much good. i wore a great pair of shoes to work on friday. strawberries have finally hit my farmer's market, and i continue to love all the spinach and tomatoes and eating so much fresh produce. brian and i went to our favorite brooklyn brunch spot, followed by a stop at the flea market, and we feel in love with the fort greene neighborhood in brooklyn even more (especially the little girl giving away lemonade to dads for free). at night we went to see aziz ansari stand-up, and as a huge parks and rec fan, i was delighted. he was hilarious, to say the least. and then sunday brought some family time when brian and i left the city for my little cousin's graduation party.
another great weekend. even writing all of this out has made me feel better. it can be hard to have all aspects of your life sync up - sometimes parts of it needs more work, or sometimes everything is running smoothly. but remembering and taking joy in what is going smoothly and happily can always help refocus you. and with that - into monday we go.
