She turned 9 on usLiz in the hat B

and without a doubt I am grateful for this little space that keeps my secret thoughts, and special moments alive.

half a smile B

 I’m grateful to have a space like this:  to look back on, to look into those deep baby blues, and count all those little freckles on her face once again.

That face I dig so much. Liz hand on to your hat b

I’m grateful for those spaces between her teeth – those spaces I just can’t get enough of when she smiles at me.

those teeth the dentist says we need braces for – those teeth he says we need to change forever. Liz and Magic BI’m grateful for a place to keep the magic alive, to look back and see the love, the pain, and the joy of my past.
