I began this post with the intention of adding to it over time and then publishing it in a few weeks, but I just realized that MY BIRTHDAY IS IN ONE MONTH TWO WEEKS. I'm floored by this fact. I wish I could slow time down, just for a little bit, and just LIVE a little more. and then I remember, oh yeah, this IS you living, Amy. Waking up in the morning and brushing your teeth and slipping into heels and helping people and leaving a path of clothes on the way to the bathtub and meeting a friend for coffee and sliding between the sheets at bedtime, this. is. your. life.
Sometimes it's just necessary to stop and think about this.
I guess I'll get on with the main point of the post (although maybe that was it??)
Here are some lovely things I would like to unwrap on June 8th :
apple TV (yesss unlimited Netflix.)
black TOMS (I fear mine are beyond repair.)
I would also really like to go home and visit my family. I don't know how feasible that one is. But it's at the top of my list ** :]
* this is a lyric from my favorite childhood birthday song,
tied only with "Jump Jump" by KrisKross.
** edited to add : I just found out that my mom is coming to visit me for my birthday weekend. I'm sorry I ruined the surprise (I know her too well) but wow! I'm so happy! this is the best gift ever! :)
