Sunshine Sunday

My dear friend Sonia recently returned from a year in Spain. Sometimes you don't know how much you miss a person until you are reunited with them. Sonia is all light and smiles. She has this way of saying "mmhmm" at the perfect moment. And we always laugh. So much laughter. Marnacakes was there too, of course. Her heart shines golden through her affectionate gestures and ever-present grin. Meeting Marna and Sonia was the only good thing to come out of working at the Volunteer Center oh so many years ago. Being with them was the perfect way to wind down a whirlwind weekend.

A sunshine day. An old row house stoop. Bare feet. Beers. Girlfriends. Some tacos and a leisurely walk. That is what Sundays should be.
