Today I am thankful for a change of pace. A slower pace, even if it's for just a bit, but enough of a change to be able to take a few deep breaths in. I'm thankful for a lingering evening that started with some cooking (of tortilla soup), transitioned into Tuesday night conversation with friends close to my heart, which is ending now with a Snow Day (New Belgium, I give you mad props. I'm addicted.) and a book. I just love when it ends slow like this, when I have time to unwind, not just fall into my bed. Aahh.
