it's days like today that remind me that my life (and your life) is a one-time-only ride.
you only get to go through it once.... and you had better make it count.
it was april's birthday today.
so we went to Ruben's and celebrated.
it's a one-time-only opportunity.
you only get that exact birthday once in a lifetime.
so glad we went and had celebratory burgers and beer.
also in celebrating happy times, i don't know if you know, but there's exactly 24 days until i get to see (most of) the people i hold dear. we'll be seeing our blood relatives (moms and dads), but equally as important, the family i consider as close to blood relatives as possible, our cutters family... jim, linda, teddy, caroline, clayton, sasha, alycin, kristen, woj, (of course pilling and april), fowler and hursh, hank, sam s, booby, thomas, eric b, patches, sonne (and jaime!), kevin (and brian!), erin, tim, robert and kay... and everyone who won't potentially make it back... the nevilles (+1!!), paul, dave c, vargo, hazelbear...... gosh there's so many people i probably missed that deserve a shoutout for being the most incredible part of my accidental family.
i can't wait to come back and cry at you all like it's my wedding day again.
you know what i mean, the happiest tears a girl could ever have.
