On the bright side, continued

I said I would try to keep this post up, so that is what I'm doing. Today was such a gorgeous day, Ryan and I finally decided to clean up our balcony and just leave the doors open.

Tonight, there are hundreds of fireworks going off in every direction (including some that seem to be coming from our own apartment complex) in celebration of the Diwali festival.  It's fun just to be sitting in our living room and be able to watch them!  OK, there's a part of me that wants to duck my head in the sand to make all the loud noises STOP!  But I'm trying to ignore that side of me, and just enjoy.
