I see this hashtag (#thegoodlist) on Instagram from time to time, and the idea seems to be that you list a few good things from your day when the mood strikes you. It makes me smile, so here goes. Inspired by @amieshmamie, whose Good Things list reminded me that I've been meaning to do this for a while.
  1. 7.12 - sitting with the kids in the grass under a shady tree / visiting my grandparents / pizza with beet pesto for dinner
  2. 7.17 - beach day with friends / parenting as a team / Greek salad with grape leaves and a side of curly fries
  3. 8.23 - a long, hot, uninterrupted shower / secret chocolate stash / watching the kids dress up as pirates and dragons
  4. 8.27 - a visit from my sister / our walk to the pond/park in fall-ish weather / homemade lemonade
