In just a few day’s time, we’ll be taking a trip. It’s not always easy to find enough minutes to really be together – the kind of together that has no phone calls, or work, or obligations, or every-day distractions. Where we can simply listen to each other and take it all in, before it changes as it does from year to year. So often too fast, before we have a chance to notice. I can’t wait to feel the sun on my back, to explore new places, and return to old familiar ones we love. With my beautiful family. The most important thing in the whole world. They are my inspiration, my joy, my pride and my heart. And I don’t want to miss any of it.
Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you –
sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second.
And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever. ~ Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium
