July 27th

Dear July,
Things that made me happy today, on a day that was long and sometimes hard:
1. My jonquils flowered. And they are so beautiful.
2. We had the assessment meeting for the FRRR Heywire Youth Innovation Grants. The grants fund such exciting ideas and this year looks like it will be stronger and more exciting than ever. It is such an incredible thing to be a part of.
3. Had a work related dinner tonight at a little Italian place and I has some really life affirming gnocchi.
4. After such a long day, I drank tea and ate leftover mille-feuille in my really excellent bed with my really excellent boyfriend.
5. Sent a lot of messages to a lot of people that I love. I’m very lucky to love such wonderful people.
