Question of the week: What is your perfect day?
My immediate response to this question would be a day at Disneyland or vacationing in the Caribbean. But both of these days are few and far between and I try to make my “normal” days as enjoyable as possible. My perfect day happens quite often, or at least parts of it, which keeps me happy on a regular basis. I have found that any day spent with loved ones, laughter, and time for myself is a great one. Just as my dad says every morning, “It’s gonna be a great day!”
My perfect day begins with a pancake breakfast- with peanut butter on top. Afterward, my mom and I will play tennis where after a never-ending game of deuces, I inevitably win. Then I will have lunch with my Grandma Joan which is always filled with advice, giggling, and a hint of sarcasm that only my grandma can provide. Next I will bake cookies with my best friend, Lauren, where we (or actually, I) will probably put in too much butter and we’ll have to start all over again. After that I will take a quick nap with my Kiko under the covers (yes, he does sleep under the covers and rest his head on the pillow just like a person). And then to end the day, I would go out to dinner with my family to either a favorite place, like Ferraro’s, or somewhere new; no matter where we go I WILL get dessert! To reflect on my day, I will write in my journal and read for a bit while taking a hot bath. Of course I will end with my 5 daily gratitudes; there are so many things to be thankful for. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by people that love me unconditionally and who are willing to share their time, wisdom, and company with me.
