deliriously happy

Are you ever that?
So happy you just can't believe it?
Yesterday I went into the city - my husband, and middle daughter, and I, we went to the Pagan Pride Festival, and I met a wonderful friend I had not seen in a long time. She hugged me so hugely, she hugged my family whom she had never met, she squealed with delight at seeing me.
You know how good that made me feel?
Awesomely good.
(Thanks Mary!)
Then we went to my very favorite restaurant on the planet - Rissoteria, which has gluten free pizza.
and I mean gluten free pizza to die for.
and we had a bottle, yes, I said that, a bottle of wonderful Spanish wine, and boy did that make me happy, too. I don't usually drink so much, but a bottle of good wine, and wandering around Greenwich Village on a rainy Saturday with loved ones, that is good stuff right there.
We walked up to a Soho market called the Young Designers Market, a sort of flea-marketey place where up and coming artisans sell their creations. I wish I had taken photos to show you, but I was too caught up in all the extraordinary things. There are some talented artists out there. My husband and I bought new matching silver wedding bands, created out of a wax carving, and a druzy stone ring made from a chunk of volcano, by a very talented artist named Kim from California.
My daughter bought some beautiful coppery-green underwear, jewelry, a knitted headband, and a dress. It was a perfect day.
How can I not be so grateful for all I have?
