The first moment was having the opportunity to watch the sun rise and enjoying the pre-humid southern air of a morning walk. Second, taking a moment to have lunch at home in peace and quiet and knocking things off the domestic to-do list (i.e. mountain of laundry, sink with dishes, getting the mail). Third, having a surprise visit by my fiancé who was so excited about his new marketing campaign that I got to be one of the first few to see it – totally made my day.
Sometimes, I burn my candle at both ends with the amount of multi-tasking that I get myself into. Take last night, left work at 9:40 p.m. and tried to eat dinner and chat on the phone with one of my bridesmaids as I hurried to another task on my to-do list. And all it takes is for my fiancé to laugh, hug me and tell me that it’s all going to be O.K. In that hurried, hair-on-fire state of life, it takes the moments of a day like today to make me stop and literally smell the roses.
