He's happy ...

I have a client at work who absolutely loves boxes. In fact, he's border line obsessed with them. Most conversations revolve around boxes. A lot of joy in his life comes from talking about boxes, looking for boxes, and holding boxes. In fact, he will do almost anything just so he can hold a box for five minutes (he then has to recycle the box because he gets too attached to boxes. But that is beside the point.).

At work today I was mentioning how perfectly wonderful it was that he found so much joy in something so simple. I said how I wanted to be more like that.

Several hours later, upon returning home, and having forgotten that conversation, I was straightening up my room and decided to put on fresh bedsheets.

I went into my linen closet to acquire the fresh bed sheets. And there they sat ... The brand new bedsheets I had bought two weeks early (during my Retail Therapy ... we could have an entire year's worth of blog posts on why I had to have said Retail Therapy, but also beside the point).

I was thrilled as I put these babies on my bed:

And even more thrilled when I realized the pajama bottoms I had bought at the Gap outlet in Park City over Labor Day weekend matched by spankin' new bedsheets!

He loves boxes. I love pink things (and let's be honest, polka dots too). We are a lot more alike than I realized. And that, that makes me even happier than I already was. Perfection for a mere moment today. :)

P.s. I have the most ironic story to tell ever. I just need to find a way to vaguely tell it on here ...

So, I think Cora likes pink, too. When she saw the picture of you she said, "Pink pink." It's the only color she actually ever says.
