Friday Roundup

I am excited for summer {if it ever stops snowing} because I've managed to come up with a pretty exciting schedule: Benjamin turns 1 year old, a race, a writing retreat, a girl's getaway, and the birth of my new nephew are all happening in the span of 4 months.

Now I just need the weather to hurry up and warm this town.

What are your summer plans?

Happy weekend!

2. Tim came home a couple days ago to tell me his job's annual review went really well, knowing the awesome Architect he is I was not surprised. Then he said "and you may be surprised to hear I got my best score in communication", to which I replied "well, my work here is done." This interaction will only make sense {or seem humorous} to you if you knew that in this relationship I am the outspoken extrovert and him the ever-thinking introvert, but all jokes aside, I think as a society we underrate introverts, their wit, spark, and capabilities.

4. At Madrid Gallery, Blind Visitors Can Touch Masterpieces

6. I am close to returning to work full time and leaving Benjamin in a daycare facility, we recently found out that we made the cut in the waiting list, but that is only one of the hurdles to overcome.
