Beyond thankful things are going well in the lives of my family and friends. My father is retiring, my brother is back at school, my mom is pursuing art again and my best friends are looking forward to their lives after graduation. Times like these are pretty magical


Today my roommate called me when she was at the store to see if I wanted anything. At first I said I wanted ice cream, but then changed my mind and told her not to get me anything. When she got home she surprised me with my favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry's.



Today I accompanied my younger cousin to an all-day meet & greet event for a singer she's a fan of. My Uncle (her father) not only paid for my ticket to the event, but for our dinner afterwards.
