22 Years on This Earth

Cake on my 4th birthday
Don't worry, be happy

my parents must have been so proud to have a daughter with such awesome hair

i used to swim for hours upon hours in my tiny little barney pool
my cousin and I. Me; 2 years older, always smaller
The romper is making its comeback!

"There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, the morning more fragrant than ever again."

I feel so blessed to have been able to live and love for the past 22 years. Every day is a wonderful day. Every day you wake up is a whole new day full of undiscovered potential. Every day is a birthday. Every breathe is a gift. Thank you to everyone who has come into my life. Although today I feel no older than any other day I wake up, I greatly appreciate my life and all of the wonderful experiences I have lived. I'll leave you guys with some pictures from when I was a child, a time when all things were shiny and new.
