My Wedding toast to my sister on The Sparkled Life blog.
today is a good day because it is the birthday of my little sister Courtney.
She spent it climbing 3 14ers before 9am. nbd.
(PS:look at her shirt. Shes a supporter. Thanks girl!!!)
I also was able to get together for lunch with two old and good friends, one who recently moved across country and one who has recently had a baby. I couldnt help but think how life’s roads are so crazy in life and you just never know where yours will end up. We had a great time catching up.
(he slept through the whole lunch except for basically this picture and the bottle :D)
I also, after all my years of loving Starbucks, have finally made it to Gold level. Officially.
A special thank you goes out to all my dear friends and grandma that have sent the starbucks giftcards that got me to this special level. (:
On the subject of Starbucks (its popular here I realized), I passed today the starbucks that I stopped at daily during my hour commute ride while living in Pittsburgh two years ago as well as visited many times while in college.
For whatever reason, this made me tear up a little bit, seeing this Starbucks.
Remembering all the times I had stopped there (It had to have been over 300 stops over the course of 5 years).
And remembering the memories around those times.
And realizing that my life will never be the same.
I told myself the other day that I wouldnt waste anytime letting my feelings towards MS and how it has affected my life change the way I live.
Because life is too great to live otherwise.
And though they say it’s possible
To me, I don’t see how it’s probable
I see the course I’m on spinning farther from what I know
But I’ll hold on
my favorite little sister got engaged yesterday!!!
In the cookies of life, sisters are the chocolate chips. AMEN
(ps found this quote and just thought it was adorable: I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones. ~ 4-year-old
