10 List: Instant happiness

While in Chicago recently, I had long slow periods of doing very little,
which can be a good thing. Simple pleasures included:

gorgeous peonies in bloom

the new Modern Wing of the Art Institute

rain on Lake Michigan...

...adding sweetness to the heavy foliage of June.

the University of Chicago at night

driving on Lake Shore Drive all the way to Evanston

discovering the store Brimfield (in Andersonville) with S.

spending time with nieces and nephews who are nearly all grown up

reading The Book Thief and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

indescribably delicious
custard filled cupcakes made by my niece
