we used to joke how beaver, utah is the 42nd most patriotic town in utah... because of this lovely sign at a rest stop. (beaver in a tiny town in southwest-ish utah. the main hot spot is wendy's.)
photo taken on my first trip ever with ben. we drove from northern utah to southern california to see my bro, wife and then new baby. and to play because that is what so-cal is for.
i think i'm getting wiser but i am catching on to the fact that i am getting old.
it's funny that i thought i'd want certain things by now. or the my idea of my life way back when is so different than what it is now.
i am twenty-six... and...
i love my husband. i am so lucky to be with him. i love that we took that road-trip to southern cal in 2007 and fell in love for the 87th time (currently, we are falling in love for the 790th time).
i live in new york, the city of. i feel excited, everyday, to live here. excited and tired because i am always doing so much.
i feel blessed for these things. for an education: one that has changed and shaped my life so differently, forever and for the better.
i feel blessed for a job. but also great coworkers and the ability to support myself and my favorite person.
i love to travel and eat. if you know anything about me, you know that my top three favorites are the husband, travel and food. and luckily all of those go together really well.
and luckily we are going on a travel adventure in less than two weeks.
in the past, it's been tradition in my family to have each family member say what they like about the birthday person, why they are thankful for them.
but i just wanted to say i am thankful to be alive.
and i am happy with life.
and i am glad spring came early, even though i like to think that
the first day of spring is march 21.
