…to be surrounded by such great kids

Sal and I were walking down the river trail and a boy in full mountain biking gear, about 7 years old, lost the pedal on his bike. He had ridden a hard trail with his dad and brother and was riding home alone. I tried to help him but couldn’t get the pedal on. He said he would just take it to Johnny (the bike mechanic). He was so polite and sweet to me and Sally.

I feel lucky to live in a place where it is safe for kids to be independent and where so many parents teach their kids to be polite and respectful. It’s a really special place.

PS On our way to dinner Jeff and I were stopped by a girl and boy who offered us some of their sidewalk chalk to draw pictures with them!

…for female friends

One of the best parts of my 30s has been my friendships with strong, driven, compassionate women. I was more comfortable with males in my teens and 20s and have found so much joy in the female friendships I’ve begun to craft in the last 6 years. There have been missteps for sure, but I have learned a lot and am grateful to grow in this area of my life. Some of my female friendships are really deep, and some are more surface, but they all feed and nourish me.

Here’s a shot from a girls night on Monday – just one of the many moments of joy I experience with the amazing women in my life.
