Happiness is seeing one of my oldest friends, whom I knew when we were girls, delighting in my own little girl. Happiness is revisiting a cherished place from childhood, the repository of so many memories, and sharing it with my own child. Happiness is a road trip that is full of beauty and adventure, with the best traveling companion (well, some of the time!) Happiness is the taste of salt air on my lips, and feeling the wind in my hair from the deck of the ferry as my face drinks in the end-of-the-summer sunshine. Happiness is finding the the island is more beautiful than I remembered it. Happiness is a picnic on a peaceful crescent beach. Happiness is an outdoor shower. Happiness is ice cream for dinner! Happiness is feeling so tired--and so hopeful--at the end of a magical day.
Thank you for all of this and more, my beloved Eden! You are a true friend!
