The focus of my week felt a little like this:

Why? Because Miss Adrienne Kathleen Gardner got ENGAGED! I’ve been known to be a little less than jazzed about grown-up things like weddings and showers and such, but Adrienne’s engagement somehow felt very different to me. I think I’m so much more grounded, centered and happy about where my life’s at that I was able to enjoy this big moment for her in a way I haven’t been able to with some of my other friends. I felt so much excitement spilling out from the phone as I was talking to her. It is such a wonderful feeling to hear a close friend so elated and happy.
