Stopping for coffee at Wormhole. The Delorean makes my day, as does the cute barista.

Baseball. It's the only sport I really love, and I grew up with a team that is not the Sox and Cubs**, and which wins from time to time wins in significant and memorable ways, and which would seem to have a decent chance this year, too.

(**not saying anything negative against those teams, just pointing out my baseball luck)

Seeing friends more often lately, hearing my baby laugh, and seeing flowering trees in bloom.

Planning my little sister's wedding
Wearing sandals
Coming across things like my neighbor walking her pet pig

The Decorah Eagles. Live web cam on an eagle nest in Iowa with three eaglets. Pretty amazing.
