“but i’d be fine watching you watch the sun go down
with your head on my chest and a blanket on the ground
cause everybody wants to chase the rainbow and find a pot of gold
hoping for a suitcase full of money
but all i want is you, honey”
– steve moakler

    Do you have anything late Sunday afternoon. I have a conference that day in the morning.

    If possible and works out it would be myself, my husband and my 5 year old daughter.ReplyCancel

“sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. this is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood – finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.”
― jodi picoult
