Life as I know it.

You must have flown away with the other beautiful birds.

Just for the record… My dad and I completed my first half marathon on July 20th — it took us 2hrs (and 31 seconds).

Smallest, wingless.

It should be noted…

At the cemetery I work at, there’s a small, special section tucked beside a family of spruce trees. It is my favorite section. It’s not labelled as anything particular, but it is a grouping of headstones for children that passed away far too soon. There are about 15 bundled together, unlike the rest of the…

Let’s remember that I work at a cemetery during the summer. Perhaps not the most outwardly charming of jobs, but it has its moments.

The people you’ve been before that you don’t want around anymore.

The people you’ve been before that you don’t want around anymore.
