Number 1. I don't think I've ever done this before, but here it goes...I am recommending a book that I have not yet read through its entirety. Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert is a humorous glimpse of a thirty-something woman who leaves everything behind to find herself during her travels to Italy, India and Indonesia. I think I've only read 40 pages (the author is still in Italy) and I'm hooked.
Number 2. I attended a memorial service last Friday to pay respects to a father of an acquaintance. I think I cried during most of the service. He was a criminal defense attorney, son of immigrants, a decorated navy officer (he joined the military in response to the deaths of his many cousins in an English town during WWII) and most importantly, a loving father and husband. He always smiled, never complained, and saw the good in EVERY person. Despite my cynical inclinations, I want to be like this man.
Number 3. After overcoming the thought of knitting "cups" for a baby halter top, here is the finished project!
