Forgot to bring my camera today, which is a shame because everything was glowing after the rain. If I was a great photographer, I would have come home with pictures of all the little people out in their new mittens and hats.
My daughter has crossed the threshold of independence. Remember when the coolest thing was to be left home alone? That comes just after it was the scariest thing. Amazing. So for the first time in 14 years, my husband and I went into Harvard Square together, alone. Just ran errands, poked around in the bookstore, had lunch, walked home. O the quiet pleasures.
