love is the greatest gift.

when i woke this morning i knew one thing was surely changing, my age.
what i did not know is how i would be forever changed by this surprise.
love is the greatest gift and i was on the receiving end of a universe load full of love today.
i still have no adequate words to describe what this surprise means to me, only love.  what i can tell you for certain is that my heart burst wide open and spilled out, again and again and again.  


this is one of those days in your life you will never forget.

i want to remember it all.

every. single. lovely. detail.

thank you to all the wonderful inspiring ladies in this video that i call friend.
i am the luckiest girl in the world.
life is grand.
and now it is my gift to be always pay the love forward.
