All Is Beautiful

Rain stopped finally, sun came out. I had a meeting to drive to so I figured I'd use that chance to meet a blogger. We both had yummy warm beverages and chatted at this cute coffee/market place. She and her younger daughter who came along were both gorgeous. It wasn't awkward at all. She has a friendly, open manner that makes you instantly comfortable. Then it was back to business and off to my meeting. Afterwards I got a voice mail with the great news. Nothing could touch my goofy grin after that. Not even that my "lunch meeting" turned out to not include lunch. So I waited until I got back to Concord and picked up a soup and sandwich. I can't wait to pickup Keegan and go on our walk for the first time in a week.

Edited: More good news!
