before 5am, i woke up to this:
i wish this picture could do it justice– but it can’t.
around 5am (between my tossing and turning) i opened my eyes and saw the most beautiful sky i have ever seen.it was pink. bright pink with hints of blues and clouds that made you believe in silver linings. it was one of the most beautiful morning skies that i have ever seen. and at this very moment, i needed that.
i closed my eyes and curled back up under my favorite duvet along side my two favorite things : ian + clem. and i had a few seconds of ‘thought’ before i drifted off to sleep.
i am so damn grateful. and sometimes i need (and maybe even you) to take a few seconds away from each day and be grateful. this past weekend was filled with so much love and i am forever (again) grateful for everyone who took time away from their day to make mine a little better.
to meghan and dave, i love you. thank you for spending your long weekend with me and making me smile. you always, always, always make me smile. to my family, aunts and cousins, thank you for the wonderful dinner and roof top dance. to the kirby girls for a scrumptious burger and beer. and to my grandparents who always seem to make my sunday afternoons a little brighter. and to ian + clem, for making everyday matter. without you there is no me.
25 is my year. there, i said it. i am making every day count and being grateful for every single thing that happens.
happy (almost) birthday to myself.
i can say that, right?
