It’s become our tradition, every Memorial Day my husband and I go to the National Harbor on the Maryland, Virginia border. Rediscovering all the free museums and monuments has been a blast. This year we choose to visit the Washington Monument. Unfortunately, the reflecting pool was empty and under construction, but it didn’t stop us from enjoying the beauty of this national treasure.

Of course while we were there we made some time for family. We’ve got a new baby in the family so one afternoon was spent sprawled on the floor watching him suck his toes. Now I know that might not sound like a lot of fun for some of you, but for one afternoon, we slowed down and relaxed. No phones, no computers, just one baby with ten fascinating toes. When I’m back to my hectic schedule I realize just how much I enjoyed that one afternoon.

Tell me about an unexpected joy you had in the last month.
