Friday Favorites: Neighborly Love

Welcome to Friday favorites: a weekly linky for your favorite blog posts from the week co-hosted by Maya of Musings of a Marfan Mom and me!

In addition to the linky, I'm taking this opportunity each week to write a little bit about my favorite moments from the past week. I hope you'll feel inspired to leave a comment telling me about your favorite thing(s) that happened this week, too!

These are a few of my favorite things:

Jaymz took a vacation day from work on Monday, which gave us a three-day weekend! I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we were so glad we had planned ahead to do that, because between the Daylight Savings Time change and a few other difficult/complicating factors, we all really needed an extra day to recover.

This is not ours, but it looks similar
to the one we were gifted.
Now the only question is:
Where should I hang it up?
One of our neighbors dropped by early in the week and brought by a gift of a beautiful glass globe with an air plant lovingly nestled inside. She was thanking us for having her and her husband over for tea one morning when they were locked out of their apartment in the rain. I saw them outside and invited them over to chat and warm up as they waited for the locksmith—it just seemed like the thing to do! I am really grateful that she thought of us. Plus, she just happened to come over just after I had gotten some disappointing news, so it felt that much more uplifting.

Daniel is continuing to navigate the challenging transition to his new preschool, and by the end of today, he (most likely) will have gone two full sessions with no parents present. I wish the change was going more smoothly in several areas, but I'm grateful for the ways it has been easier.

I've been enjoying the challenge of writing daily for NaBloPoMo. It feels good to have writing time higher up on my priority list, and it's been fun to look through my draft posts (ideas I jot down when I think of something) and spend time fleshing out those ideas to share here.

What was one of your favorite moments from the week?
