1. Lying on a picnic blanket on long grass with the warm end-of-winter sun on the back of my neck. The bells are chiming above me from the Carillon recital, my husband lies next to me with his jumper shading his eyes -- he doesn't need it to keep him warm -- and the kids are throwing pebbles into the lake.
2. I look at the clock, panting and dripping sweat, and am horrified to find that I am only half way through my group exercise class. But I make it through the second half.
3. A lemon cupcake.
