notes: went to way fewer concerts than I think I have since moving in NYC - I attribute this to the new job. This will change in my 33rd year. I saw way more movies in the theater than usual - 9 - that is a lot for me...

I'd have to say, all in all 32 was a really, really good year. I can't begin to tell you about the lessons learned or the the beauty I've seen - this year was phenomenal. I was not without its low points but they too were filled with lessons. 32 meant saying goodbye to a childhood friend, R.I.P. Benji.

Tomorrow morning at 8:50 I entered this world 33 years ago in a small British hospital, they handed my mom a pint of Guinness.

Since we were uptown for the parade, I decided we'd check out another iconic NYC spot.

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Back in the beginning of October, I suggested to my family that we should take Cailynn and Jeremy to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I am so glad we went, so much fun!

Sailor Mickey, my favorite balloon.

This right here captures exactly why I thought we should go to the parade. love.

before and after

When you're looking out over a precipice and you think it can't get more beautiful as you watch the fog lift and the clouds shift, don't forget to turn around and change your vantage point.

"Don't Give Up the Ship"

words. words. swords.

Sometimes healing takes place in unexpected ways, and nature knows better than we do about how to make it happen.

Everything is a lesson, and some make our hearts hard. Reminders are everywhere, city steps that were parts of many journeys to catch the moon. Climb on.
