“I would explain that human love is a combination of three emotions or impulses: desire, vulnerability, and bravery. Desire makes one feel vulnerable, which then requires one to be brave.”

― Daniel Jones, Modern Love, Revised and Updated: True Stories of Love, Loss, and Redemption

Happy Birthday

Today is my birthday. Unfortunately I was stuck at work all day, but yesterday I was off work and my family celebrated. We bought sandwiches and had a picnic lunch at one of our favorite spots on top of a mountain. We then went book shopping, or at least I went book shopping. I bought four books. Olive, Again; When Dimples Met Rishi; The Red Tent; and Anne of Green Gables to add to my collection. Then a stop for milkshakes and deep fried Oreos before heading home to watch Monsters Vs Aliens.

It was a really good day. This past year has been tough, I know it’s been tough for almost everyone but there was a lot in my personal life that wasn’t very good and even the good things were tinged with sadness because they couldn’t be celebrated the way they should have been celebrated. So I am glad that we were able to have a good time today.

Book haul!
30 seconds of peace
