Lately a lot of fun things are happening or being planned, but with so much going on at the same time, I often start to feel a bit overwhelmed with logistics, finances, etc. and all this fun stuff seems to not be so fun anymore. It even got me a little down in the dumps. Fortunately I usually wake up the next day in a much better mood, which was the case today and I am so thankful!
Today Nola and I were able to meet up with a good friend in the city. She works at a great spot, Stable Cafe, and it’s just the best sitting outside catching up and having someone dote on Nola while I can just eat! She seriously is the best!! Every time I go into the city I always say, “I need to come in more often.” I really don’t know why I don’t, it’s only a 15-20 minute drive…it’s probably because I also really love our little Burlingame area as well. But there’s something about the city that makes you feel so alive and so I’m making a point of coming in much more often.
After lunch Nola and I walked to Delores Park. The new playground is so neat, but also a little scary. I often think, how did this design get passed by the city (architecture thoughts in my head) there are so many areas the kids could get hurt. But I know if I was a kid I would probably think it’s the best place on earth. While walking back to the car Nola fell asleep and I was thinking, “man my life is so blessed! I can’t even believe this is my life!”
I was brought back to reality when I got to my car and seen i had a parking ticket 🙁 It was like a movie, the ticket went flying in the air and I had to run half a block to finally catch it. But really, that couldn’t ruin my day.
Oh, and to bring me more smiles later in the day when I was walking Nola in her car, she started nodding off to sleep and it really was the cutest thing ever! That girl is a complete joy!!
swinging…always loves to swing
such a great day with my girl!
this is the car she started falling asleep in…that girl (wish i had video of that)
