1. Craig, because he gave me...
2. ...Alicia, who is smart, kind, and one of the most hard-working people I've ever known, and...
3. ...Alex, whose sensitive soul and generous nature amaze me every day.
4. Nothing Bundt Cakes. Alicia ordered me some for today, and ohmigod, their strawberries and cream flavor for spring is divine.
5. Buffy. I had reminders up the wazoo this past week of all the things that Buffy ever did for me. How much joy it brought me. How grateful I am for everything I learned while writing fanfic for it back in the day. What the fandom does for me still on a daily basis.
6. Pool time with the family. I feel it the next day, but it's necessary. And fun.
7. Hearing my mom say she loves me on the phone this morning when I called. She's not a demonstrative woman. She never talks about feelings. Any times she says the words it's gold.
