small pieces of joy

pieces of joy in each day

Today’s small thing: not paying for dinner.

Being the wife of a grad student at Notre Dame has its perks.

Tuesday night was the welcome back mass and picnic for the whole University. They fed thousands of students and their families and we barely had to stand in line. Brats, hamburgers, chicken, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, veggies, cookies AND ice cream….all for the taking.

Then the Graduate Student Union had their welcome back picnic tonight. They had hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, pasta salad, potato salad, and TROPICAL SNO! (Any one from KSU remember Tad’s??)

It is amazing how after a long day of work, a free meal can lift your spirits.

Thank you, Notre Dame, for feeding us two nights this week. Can we make this a regular thing?

What is your favorite picnic food? Mine are hot dogs and bratwurst. MMM.
