A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood!

Such a beautiful day in the neighborhood… I busted out the Instagram app on my iPhone once again today, when I spotted these fluffy clouds as I drove to Stockton from Lodi.

Sometimes I feel like Lodi is a picturesque little town. Our downtown is quaint and fun with its brick walks and old buildings. There is a house on my way to work with a white picket fence around it and a Golden Retriever who lays on a perfectly manicured lawn chewing on a bone most mornings. Mothers push prams to parks where they push their pudgy little babies on swings. It’s a modern day Mayberry most of the time.

Yes, it has it’s downfalls. There is crime, homeless people and the usual plights towns have. But today, when the clouds are so pretty and the weather is so great— I can’t see any of that.

I feel extra happy today.

I’m grateful for that— and I’m hopeful for more days like this to come.
