CAPES [something empowering] On a bus ride home from school when I was in kindergarten, a boy told me that I had chubby cheeks. And while there was probably some truth to it then, I’ve treated it as a permanent truth: I have chubby cheeks. This video, that you’ve probably watched a few times already, has caused me to rethink how I define myself, and understand the difference between “had” and “have.”
COFFEE [latest trend or addiction] I’ve started eating vegetables for breakfast. Brussels sprouts, zucchini, broccoli…if it’s green, I’ll eat it pre-noon. Yum. Join me.
THE COLOR ORANGE [something noteworthy] A week ago I did something I’ve never done before: I officiated a wedding. I know the bride from Junior High, and her and her now husband got married at the top of Whistler Mountain. A gondola trip up, and up the stairs of the lodge to the outdoor patio – they said their “I do’s” outside in 25 degree weather, overlooking snow-peaked mountains. It was a privilege, and I’ll never forget it.
