at this moment....

i'm wishing i was with this girl. sweet, perfect, girly, shy, funny, and now 3-year-old Olivia, whose birthday was yesterday... 
...and i have been thinking about her all week. the hardest part about living away from family is missing out on these monumental moments and not being able to snuggle, spoil and kiss our littlest family members whenever i want. happy birthday Livi, i see so many great things coming for you. 

i'm also spending a lot of time today thinking of this guy....
...because sometimes when i do, i can actually feel my heart puffing up in my chest, getting bigger and beating harder. it's a good feeling. i am ever so grateful for him. i am more of the person i should have always been, every second i spend with him. 

also spending a little time thinking of this sweet treat, which we whipped up last night for dessert. i love finding pure (and raw) perfection with the littlest amount of ingredients possible. with of course, the addition of, lots and lots of chocolate sauce.

Congrats to Coco on his promotion! I'm excited to hear of your new adventures and how you're going to make school work or if you're going to be a beauty school drop-out. Either way, I love your guts. I miss you! I hope to see you soon if you come to Utah in August.
