Perfect Moment Monday: Gondola and Grimace

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.

Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.


This week I had not just a perfect moment but an entire perfect day.

The morning started in downtown Denver, and included a mocha frappe, The Hamburgler, a gondola, learning that Denver has a lock-system on Cherry Creek, and the always-friendly Mile High Mamas. Here are some snapshots from that part of the day.

After I got home, I joined a conference call with Selena Gomez and Joey King, sisters in the about-to-be-released film Ramona and Beezus. Tessa and I attended a pre-screening of the movie earlier in the week, and it is fanTAStic. A full write-up will come soon.

Both girls were kind and real and vibrant as they answered our interview question. I have new status in Tessa’s eyes, having chatted with the The Wizards of Waverly Place star.

It’s really something close to perfection, I’ve found, to be thought cool by a tweenager.
