It just occurred to me that today is my half birthday…I’ve been 24 years old for six whole months. And I’m so incredibly disappointed…although my golden year may be halfway over, I still have halfway to go. I’m going to make it count.
This is a little tale about my sweetheart. It’s also about learning how to love, how to forgive, and how to say yes to the things that may not be so popular.
I’ve spent the last 4 hours of this day scrolling through my social media feeds admiring happy family photos of my friends with their fathers. Usually, on this day I’ve spent in celebration of my own father…but this year is a bit different.
I can still smell the salt water and hear the waves crashing into one another. The dark blue water and the crystal clear sky. The warm burning sun on my skin.
