2. For the lovely gifts from JJ and Derick! The pictures may just be physical things, but they capture a memory that means the world to me. And the coffee handbook is a ton of fun to flip through!
3. My health and that of my family. I have two coworkers each with a loved one in a hospital fighting for their life tonight. It's a heart breaking reminder that life is fragile and each day is a gift! My heart and prayers are with your families and will continue to be.
4. A great weekend getaway with fam and friends. Rented a cabin in Mackinaw City for a few days...explored Mackinac Island by day...worked like crazy to keep a campfire burning in the fire pit by night. There may or may not have also been a rendition of Somewhere Out There sang to the stars...
5. The start of the semester....only three classes stand between my masters and me (one class this fall and two classes this spring). I was only marginally productive over the summer without deadlines. So I'm ready to put my writing cap on and get to work!
