"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Erik's parents gave this to us during our last visit. It's an old Temple City newspaper and that is little Erik standing at the front of the line of swimmers. I love his little-boy belly and his crossed toes. :) Simply adorable.
I desperately want to fall in love with each moment I am given because I am very aware of how short life can be. I notice the beautiful little things like birds and the way the sun shines through the trees. I like the smell of bakeries and Autumn. I love summer nights. I love music and the high it gives me when it seems to lift me out of time and space. I could live happily on that high and dark chocolate. I am blessed to have met and married my soul mate, Erik, who knows me and loves me completely. I am a complicated person, like most people.
