How Lucky I Am

DenaApril 19, 2012

Life has been a little bit of a whirlwind lately. Wedding planning. Starting a new job. Stumbling upon challenge after challenge. Sometimes I feel dizzy-sick with it. Full up. Ready to give up.

Then comes a magic moment. A peaceful ride home. Sunset rays lighting up the dandelions in our front yard. A big hug from the man that I love. And I remember just how beautiful it all is. Just how lucky I am. | dandelion | dandelions | dandelions

“Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside—remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.” ―Charles Bukowski

    Gorgeous pictures. With all that’s going on for you, it’s bound to be a bit of helter skelter, but, it’s all good and you’ll be even happier working your way through it all.
