Weather finally warm enough to spend time outside, and getting to enjoy it with great people.
A trip to Clearwater to see the Philadelphia Phillies in spring training.
With palm trees and 79 degrees F to hold me over until then.
A first trip to New Orleans with one of my best friends from high school.
And all the good that comes with it.
Including beignets from Cafe Dumonde.
Local beers to go.
An impromptu Congo festival.
And a city that just feels special.
Sunday brewery tours back on my home turf.
Time spent with Nina, one of my oldest friends. Time spent with Ted. He is obviously loving it.
Celebrating Gram's 83rd birthday. And hoping I still look that great and live the life she does come 60 years from now too.
Walks around the block with my cousin Trish.
And slowly but surely crossing restaurants off my very long list of places I'd like to try.
Time spent in my favorite city.
Most importantly with friends that I love.
Snagging a pair of real working thermometer earrings to help build my science teaching wardrobe.
Getting myself to Citzen's Bank Park for my first regular season Phillies game of the year.
And sitting in the exact seat where a foul ball lands directly in my lap.
Because honestly, life just doesn't get any better than that.
