Let's pretend today was perfect.
Let's pretend that I didn't buy a nice bottle of wine only to drop on the pavement upon getting out of my car...crash...mmm, what a lovely bouquet with notes of pear, apple, and hot cement.
I didn't plan my family's whole dinner around one key ingredient in my refrigerator that turned out to be quite moldy.
I didn't leave my toddlers favorite, special, lovey blanket at daycare. No. Please tell me I didn't. (screaming, tear-filled toddler tantrum ensues while I do the same, in my head.)
All of these things worked themselves out, and in the end, weren't that big of a deal after all. It was a lesson in picking myself up, dusting myself off, and moving on.
And really, there were some quite lovely moments.
A quick trip to the antique mall.
Addison found a few things he loved
and so did I
Then we headed to the Moreland Farmer's Market to meet up with some friends and see all there was to see and hear and smell and taste and touch
The dinner I botched took a turn in a different direction and also turned out quite delicious and beautiful, which I can't wait to share with you tomorrow.
Until then, did you catch Stephanie and Maria on the Martha Stewart Show? So inspiring to see them get the recognition they deserve. Plus, a whole show dedicated to blogging? Very, very cool.
