woke up this morning, drove to sycamore square and sat in a gazebo with 4 friends that i love dearly. ate a slice of delicious breakfast pizza from ukrop’s, because i refuse to call it martin’s. came home and hung a birthday present on the wall in my bedroom from a girl who’s friendship to me is incredibly beautiful. fell asleep watching grey’s anatomy in my bed, because i haven’t taken a saturday afternoon nap in i can’t even tell you how long. texted with a good friend who always has this amazing way of putting a smile on my face. and now, i’m getting ready to take a long shower (because i can) and throw on something comfy to go meet my parents for dinner and wherever else the night leads me.
its days like this, where i can just stop, and relax, that i find so incredibly comforting. it doesn’t happen all that often, but when it does, it’s needed. it’s beautiful… even if the weather outside is gray and dreary. even if i didn’t cross everything off of my to-do list.
i paused, and i took a breath.
and it’s been beautiful.
