I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.
One of my favorite quotes, makes me remind myself why I do what I do.
'We create our own worlds while we dream' - Collage, experimenting with different maps to create a 'new world'.
True story: I love maps so much I have a map room in my apartment. Walls are decked out with my favorite maps and picture frames from places I’ve been.
This is my little brother and his girlfriend, Mallory. Mallory is such an awesome addition to our family. I couldn’t wish for a better partner for my brother or a greater future-sister-in-law (makes my brother squirm every time I call her this…yeah, I know they’re not engaged yet, but still). Also, can we talk about how many bags were at our family holiday shebang? Seriously.
"Is this some vegan thing? I didn’t think turkey is vegan, why are there so many vegetables on this?"
Papa, discussing his turkey sandwich which had far too many veggies on it for his taste.
"Let me remember the year we found her out in the woods…."
Papa, when asked if he remembers when my mom was born.
Do you ever get really proud of yourself for living your life? →
You take care of yourself. You go to the gym. You eat vegetables because you want to (need to) and not because someone is making you.
You have a job that you get up and go to everyday and you are good at it. People trust you to do a task and you excel. You accomplish things on a daily basis.
This. All this.
