Happiness is….

Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the park

New music from John Mayer from iTunes

Living in Minneapolis with a great view from all my windows

A walk in the park with Chesty

A beautiful fountain in the park

Getting an email from Keith saying he’s getting on the plane and heading home after being gone 3 days

Having the luxury of sewing all day- any day – because I don’t have to work

Dancing around my sewing room with no one but Chesty watching

Finishing the blocks for another HeartStrings quilt

A glass of wine on the balcony overlooking the park before dinner

Sometimes I forget how wonderful my life is…..I hope your day was just as great!

  3. “Having the luxury of sewing all day- any day – because I don’t have to work”Ahh yes, I well relate to that one. 🙂 And while we’re on that subject, my husband is also very happy to be off for the summer too. 🙂

  4. Is it Paradise or is it Minneapolis… sounds like a girl having her cake AND eating it too…The coolest part is that you appreciate it…

  6. What a day! It’s always good a good feeling to remember how lucky we are. Love your heartstrings quilt – I’m going to try out some strings soon!

  7. You know, that view from the balcony overlooking the park is almost identical to one I had at the Intercontinental Hotel in The Plaza district in Kansas City. I had to do a double-take. Your Amish Stripes quilt is coming along great. Thanks for sharing your progress.–Jennifer in KS
