there's something magical about...

-The smell (and of course, taste) of pancakes and bacon. There's something so comforting and homey about it.

-Little boys chasing pigeons with gusto.

-Going to the fabulous Linen Hall Library--this time with a membership card--and picking up a fun variety of books. I love this old library in the heart of Belfast. Little old men read their newspapers in tucked-away corners by windows as they sit at mahogany tables. Today, I saw an adorable old man with a shock of white fluffy hair and big ears and he was really the closest thing I've found to an elf here. You can check out books for a month at a time, so I loaded up. On a whim before leaving, I checked out the cooking section and grabbed a Jamie Oliver one. Cookbooks are my favorite to read, so why do I never think to pick them up at libraries? I'm glad I did.

Love the sweet little bird of happiness you added, carrying a sprig of forget-me-nots. We're counting down the days 'til you get here and the celebrating begins, Whit!
