101. goodbye party with coworkers featuring great food, lots of laughs and a few tears...
102. tasty treats for dessert
103. Hedgehog birthday cakes for a 5 year old
104. cherry trees that tempt the neighborhood children to climb them and the view we have of it all for our apartment on the fourth floor!
105. watching a couple become an instant family through adopting siblings!
