My life, though, is so much more than that. Just like I have never looked at a job, or a career, as defining me as a person (something I can't imagine ever happening, truly), being unemployed and looking for work does not define me.
The past week has been full of these little moments of amazingness and I thought I'd round up a few extra-awesome ones here. So here goes!
- Cuddle time. Even when I'm not in the mood for it, it's one of the most important parts of my "work week"
- Bunny kissing my forhead when I'm halfway asleep
- Making butter. Squeezing fresh made butter in bare hands. It's one of the reasons I've always loved baking - getting your hands right in there. There's something very viscerally appealing about something so basic as butter.
- Puppy snuggles
- Slow dancing to Bright Eyes in my living room. Every time Bunny and I slow dance at home it brings to mind the most vivid memory of the first New Years Eve we celebrated together, and how we came home from Nathan Phillips Square and danced around in our itty bitty apartment. He was wearing his African man-skirt.
