being a perfectionist is a tough job.  you spend most of your life trying to make things better.  it’s a blessing and a curse.  one of the hardest things to do if you’re a perfectionist is to just appreciate what is happening right now. at least that’s what i struggle with. i have to consciously tell myself to pay attention and enjoy the moments i’m in rather than think about the moments that just passed or that are coming up.  but then, every once in a while, things just fall into place and enjoying and relishing in the now is pure ease. that is what happened last weekend.

adam and i drove up to seattle and spent a glorious weekend together and with friends.  the highlights: dinner at sitka and spruce with 2 of our dear friends; a gorgeous, sunny, 12-mile run around the city; sitting in the sun, drinking wine and watching all of our friends’ kids run around and play on the slip-n-slide; more sun and wine followed by dinner and connecting with some of our best friends in the entire world.

all of it was simply perfect.
