"You are so tiny! Do you ever eat?" I was at work and the lady had been watching me for awhile before saying anything. "Oh yes, I do! I love food," I responded, turning around before I could embarrass myself by blabbing on about my love of food or listing everything I'd eaten in the past twenty-four hours. But honestly, I don't think I could ever adequately put into words how much I love carbs and cookies and chocolate. On Saturday morning, I made chocolate chip cookies, and after consuming a good amount of the dough, I opted to bake it all in a pan rather than forming individual spheres. One of my better ideas, I think. (the pan was gone before the end of the day, if you were wondering)

But enough about food (or I risk making myself hungrier than is appropriate for 10 o'clock on a Wednesday morning). This past Christmas, my grandmother gave me my first pearl necklace. It was given to me with the instructions to pass on to my eldest daughter when the time comes. When I drape the necklace on, secure the clasp, and feel the weight of the pearls resting on my collarbones, I am reminded of my someday future, and that's a marvelous thing.
Oh, and that skirt? Yeah, it's one of the best things in my closet (besides this, of course). When I wear it on a sunny day, I have entirely too much fun pretending to be a walking disco ball.
