Well, a month ago I was cleaning up from dinner and realized that the sky looked...interesting. The clouds were sort of cool and the colors were getting more and more vivid. I tried taking a picture from the kitchen window, but decided this might be worth going outside with the real camera as I was having trouble capturing things with my phone. This is the result. The "lumpy" clouds were hard to do justice, but they were amazing. And social media agreed, as a lot of people caught very similar shots.
A couple days later was our annual Day of Giving at work, where we try to raise as much money through as many donors as we can in one 24-hour span. It's always a crazy day, and this year I got recruited to help deliver cookie cakes to our advancement partners on campus. I love going on campus, and actually getting to go through academic buildings was a first for me. I couldn't help but snap pictures as I ran, though since I was traveling light they had to be with my phone. And I can't complain--the phone did well! I just wanted to share this little journey because it absolutely made my day.

I love little moments like this. Little bits of beauty in the world are sometimes the thing you need to make it through the day. They make the mundane, day-to-day stuff a little more special. I am looking forward to our summer adventures, for sure, but I hope I get a few more of these moments, too.
