701. The mountain peaks and valleys of marriage
702. Ugly-beautifuls
703. Friends who homeschool their children for the right reasons
704. A little boy who holds out his hands for me to smell as proof that he washed them with soap
705. Explaining to Caleb how and why I chose his name
706. iPad games that are free and fun for the whole family
707. Pita chips and imagining them covered in dark chocolate
708. Planning a fondue party
709. Getting into the nitty-gritty, good, bad, and ugly of life with new friends very quickly
710. Hugging friends better than I used to hug them
711. Releasing dreams, grieving briefly, and then being OK
712. How smooth my teeth feel after a trip to the dentist
713. Quiet humidifiers
714. When all the dishes in the dishwasher get clean

717. Looking through Publix’s decadent dessert selections
718. Department meetings during in-service
