golden age

“and so we’re told this is the golden age…”
– u2
today…
i turn another year wiser… 
i feel a little bit braver…
and i shine a whole lot brighter.
with lots and lots of candles on this cake, you’d think i’d have an endless list of things to wish for…a sunny south of france getaway, a yellow public bicycle, a sunset dinner at baker beach, a glamorous night at the ballet….
but after thinking about it, i’ve realized all these wishes bubble up to one, mighty, fantastical wish…
“let’s make every day, and every year, a wild and wonderful adventure.”
{via jaymipop}
here’s to always reaching for our brass ring, eyes forward and hearts wide open.
and a hundred thank yous to each and every one of you, sweet friends, for inspiring me every minute of every day….
here’s to the next glorious adventure. 🙂

friends, your sweet thoughts and inspiring comments are the bright spot of my day. please make the jump, hang out and share what’s on your mind. 🙂
