today, i want to make homemade chocolate chip cookies because it reminds me of the sweetness of being 7 years old. i want to dance in the living room with my husband who i have missed this last week. my heart longs for him lately, like how it did when we first met. i want to buy a little charlie brown christmas tree and decorate it with all of our beloved antique ornaments. and sip on cider and listen to soft music. i want to walk tree-lined streets with my girlfriends as we talk about what really matters in our lives. i want to learn how to write meaningful poetry that is understandable and not pretentious. i want to learn how to make arm warmers and be stylish and crafty. i want to feel the breath of a life lived with passion and compassion. i want to take moody photos that capture the bliss and the overwhelm. i want to travel to paris and eat chocolate croissants until i can’t take it anymore. i want to sit in an italian cafe and write and laugh and watch people come and go. but most of all, i just want to remain grateful – for the life i live today, in this moment, with plans or no plans, daydreams, and all. i’m a happy girl.
Sending much love,
