Three Beautiful Things Thursday

1. Today a police car approached a four-way stop sign the same time I did. He went first and I drove behind him. He turned left, and I had to turn left. Then we both turned right. I ended up following him for four miles. I am so grateful I let him go first because I would have been super paranoid had a cop been following my every turn for four miles. I'm a law abiding citizen but a cop trailing my car makes me feel like I'm on the lark with a pack of koala bears stuffed in my trunk.

2. My Arkansas Family. We went to visit K's mamus labor day weekend and I had one of the best hangouts of my life. They are hilarious and I loved the constant back and forth teasing and the genuine warmth and affection that remained ever present in every interaction. Amen, if you're reading, it was so nice to get to know you better. You're an amazing person!

3. Walking with K in the evening and taking in the scent of jasmine in the air while cold wind gently whispers through my hair and cools my skin. In a moment like that it is impossible to feel anything but peace.

Aisha! You were following a cop for four miles? That is so funny! I would love to follow a cop around :)

I think the weather is great right now too, but we don't have jasmines, at least that I know of. But I love walking at night when the moon is out. Now that you mention it, I think that I used to have jasmines outside of my bedroom window in Florida. I think it was in the fall (?) when the weather would get nicer, if there were no hurricanes, and I'd smell them at night.

Any plans to visit DC?

You have family in AR? I lived there for six years in the NW corner. Alma. I miss the landscapes.

I'm completely with you on the cop-following-you thing. That would make me paranoid, too.

Aisha Appi, believe me when I say that having you was our pleasure. We still think of all the laughing and conversations and miss you guys so very much. Come back soon (now that you know that Arkansans aren't as stupid as they say ;-)
