... taking a break when you need it and not beating yourself up for doing so. Even if it's a break from something you usually enjoy. And the break lasts for two months. And it means not meeting some goals you had set for yourself.
... having time to take in sights before seeing a dear friend get married.
... live performance that incorporates two of your favorite things. Ballet and vampires? It's like the creators live inside my mind!
... enjoying pretty leaves while wearing a tank top (hello, best of both worlds!).
... seeing a favorite book brought to life perfectly.
... the comfort of traditions that remain despite our nontraditional way of celebrating Thanksgiving 2010
(which included shopping and eating our way through Charleston).
... relaxing with a glass of champagne and a good book in the middle of the afternoon on what would normally be a workday.
... going out on the town with Hubby.
... enjoying eight nights of candlelight to honor rededication and freedom of religion.
... salted caramel hot chocolate.
... finding and becoming part of a welcoming community where people have important things in common but are also so beautifully diverse.
... re-watching a favorite series. And knowing once you finish it, you can watch it again.
... finding the perfect holiday present. For yourself.
... warm snuggles with the kitty.
... returning to the blogosphere rested, refreshed, re-inspired, and ready to reconnect.
