Of course it is great to have things to look forward to. These days I have much to anticipate and much to be thankful for. I am thankful for the upcoming weekend getaway with my girls, my best friends. I am looking forward to spending another Thanksgiving in a magical place with someone special. And I can't wait for my annual trip to St. Thomas with my oldest, dearest friends (as mentioned above in the weekend getaway :). It's great to have those big moments in life, the times you will never forget. But it is also great to have the quiet times, the moments (like now) when there is nothing planned, nothing to worry about, anything in the world available, but nothing at all needed aside from this computer, this wine and my cozy sweat pants. In between the big things I will try to enjoy the little things. I will surround myself with things I love and try not to let the precious time elude me.
Time it was, and what a time it was
A time of innocence, a time of confidences
Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph
Preserve your memories, they're all that's left you.
