life has been good to Will and i

we found love in each other seven years ago, we are blessed with a wonderful daughter (seriously, she is amazing), we have loving families and friends, we live in a beautiful house in a wonderful neighborhood…

we are very, very blessed

with all that said, Will and i cannot help but to often think about living elsewhere

together and on our own we still think about living in a place where the trees are taller, the weather is cooler and the skyscape does not include just highrises

as good as miami has been to us, in our hearts we roam elsewhere


not knowing exactly where that place is, we stay put where we are and have been for the past decade

but we know that time is ticking

we know that it all gets much harder once Lily starts “real” school

it is a thought and a feeling we live with daily

we may not speak of it to each other all the time but i know it is there for him as much as it is there for me

i know we will eventually figure it out

hopefully sooner than later

happy friday friends

wishing you all a lovely weekend

ps- i took a lot of pictures this week. i guess i was inspired by the cooler weather
