Happy Places on Mother's Day

Where I was supposed to hike to:




Where I actually hiked to:



I had a truly ah-ma-zing hike today. Since I'm breaking in a new pair of boots, I was only going to go out for a short hike; once I was out there, however, I couldn't NOT go to the lake. I encountered two very cute little dogs taking their humans for a Sunday stroll. I also met a college-aged young man on his way to Vermont. He's got quite a few days ahead of him. I hope he's somewhere warm -- it's pretty cold tonight yet.

When I returned home, my family treated me to takeout Pad Thai. We're about a 1/2 hour from the restaurant, but the food was yummy enough to justify all that driving. I will admit to ordering spring rolls just so we could eat them on the drive home.

I'm now sitting at the kitchen table with my laptop while my daughter is icing a cake she made for me. She's an incredible baker and wants to learn to make her cakes look as yummy as they taste. I bought her some cake decorating stuff for her birthday and she's breaking all the bags and tips out for this cake. There may be pictures later. After that, there may be only crumbs.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and moms-to-be (especially S and A). I hope that your day was as relaxing and special as mine was.
