emerson's 22nd. a good night all around.
since moving, i've discovered how important holidays are. we aren't around our families (both our first families and adopted cutters family!) since we live so far from them, and it's really easy to forget about making special days special or to gloss over them and think that it can't be a special day without our whole family around. i've realized it's so important to celebrate birthdays and national holidays (even today, valentine's day) to help those days stand out and create memories.... maybe it'll spur me to make every day a holiday.
here's to today being special.
