Without the risk of sounding like a complete and utter dork, let me just say--I am in love with my life. The past few years I have spent my afternoons practically chained to my desk, groggily pushing through mountains of homework with a frazzled and exhausted demeanor. Now each day seems to bring a new adventure. I am in love with week night evenings spent reading beautiful books and drinking pumpkin spice beverages (I won't stop talking about pumpkin spice with great excitement until they replace it with coconut for spring and summer).
There is something so comforting about having people in your life who are willing to listen. Unconditional love and acceptance continue to bring joy into my life, and I am so blessed to know and love the people I do.
This weekend is the Homecoming dance, & as a senior, I feel it my obligation to attend for the last time. I have a fantastic polka-dot (what else would you expect?) dress picked out, and I can't wait to attend with some of my truly favorite people.
Here's to crisp autumn mornings with the windows rolled down.
